Principal's Weekly Update

Good afternoon West Ranch Parents,

 

The following are events and information for This Week at West Ranch, October 16-20.

Now that we have ended the first quarter grading period, grades may be viewed in Report Card format in Infinite Campus beginning at 3pm on Tuesday, October 17.  I encourage you to view the grades in Report Card format as you will be able to view any comments the teacher may want to pass onto you.  While these grades are not final, athletic teams and performing arts groups do base eligibility on quarter grades. 

FYI:  On Thursday, October 19th, from 9:15am-10:15am, West Ranch will be participating in the Great California Shake-Out Disaster preparedness drill.  During this time, the front office will not be answering phones or be available to check out students.  Please plan accordingly.  Thank you for your cooperation.

The WR Counselors are excited to partner with the WR Career Pathway Program to bring you an evening full of information!  The Counselors will discussing Naviance and all it has to offer in aiding the students on their journey to college and career readiness. We will even be discussing how to set up your own parent portal.  Our Career and College Readiness Specialist, Mrs. Jenkins will be talking about West Ranch's Career Pathway Program. She will be answering the question, "What is a Career Pathway" and highlighting some of the Pathways available to students here at West Ranch.  All are welcome!  The evening will be held on October 17th at 6pm in our West Ranch Theater. See you there!

The 7th Annual Hart District College and Career Fair is taking place on Saturday, October 21, from 9:00 AM to NOON at College of the Canyons Honor Grove.  Over 120 admissions representatives from colleges and universities throughout the nation, as well as representatives from career preparation schools, apprenticeship programs, and test prep vendors, will be participating. In addition to these representatives, there will be informational workshops offered. These workshops will be presenting on changes in the FAFSA financial aid process, how to complete the FAFSA, as well as giving information on out of state colleges and universities.  The West Ranch Career and College Readiness Department has put together a newsletter to assist families in preparing for the event with college planning tips, a list of participants, and more.  Please use the following link to access the newsletter, http://goo.gl/mdBW5T  In order to register for the College Fair please use this link, http://goo.gl/GCrKgi
