Principal's Weekly Update

Good afternoon West Ranch Parents,

 

The following are events and information for This Week at West Ranch, December 4 – 8.

 

LAST OPEN LIBRARY NIGHT!!-

We will be operating our last Open Library Night of the semester this Monday, December 4, in the West Ranch Library from 6pm – 7:30pm. We will have teachers on hand from English, Math, Science, and Social Studies to help prepare for the last days and Finals Week.  Check out the attached flyer!  We would love to see our students use this opportunity this Monday night!

 

Our incredible West Ranch Music Department is in the midst of its Winter Concert Series.  On Tuesday, December 5, the West Ranch Band will be performing.  On Wednesday, December 6, the Orchestra takes the stage.  Then on Friday, December 8, the Orchestra and Choir will combine their talents to present a Holiday extravaganza concert.  Our student-musicians are some of the most talented around, winning awards and accolades including two Wildcat singers just being selected to the All-State Honor Choir.  All our students work really hard to put on a great show.  We hope to see you there!

Senior Tributes are due by December 8, 2017.   We will accept tributes up to January 30, 2018, however any that come in after the December 8th date are will have a late charge of $35.  Senior tributes can be purchased through the West Ranch ASB web store.

 

Senior Parents – Your seniors should be checking the scholarship list on the Colleges Tab on Naviance over Winter Break.  There are multiple scholarship opportunities for students.  These scholarships can apply for those planning to attend community college or 4-year University.  Please encourage your student to check it out while they are at home.

 

Finals week is just around the corner, Dec. 12 – 14.  We have a special schedule for those days.  I have attached the schedule for this year.  Please look it over so you can help your student plan for which final exam is on which day.  Thursday, December 14th is the last day for students.  They are off for Winter Break until Monday, January 8th.     

 

Infinite Campus Information - To allow our teachers time to administer, evaluate, grade, and record finals and other student work/assessments during those last days of the semester, grades will be unavailable in Infinite Campus from Tuesday, Dec 12 at 8am - Friday, Dec. 15 at 3pm.  After grades are posted, if there are any questions regarding a grade, teachers and counselors will be available when we return from Winter Break on January 8th.  Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

 

Let’s have a great week!
