For your planning purposes, I have attached the Finals schedule to this email.
The 2020-2021 Yearbooks are here. We have a system of Yearbook distribution that is based on the student’s year in school. Many of our seniors picked up their yearbook at the Senior Sunset celebration at West Ranch last Friday, but there will be a make up day for them on Tuesday, June 1. To keep with COVID guidelines, this will be a DRIVE-THRU event. Here are the dates and times:
Tuesday, June 1: 11:30am – 12:30pm Seniors that did not get it at Senior Sunset
Wednesday, June 2: 12:30pm – 2:30pm Sophomores and Freshmen
Thursday, June 3: 12:30pm – 2:30pm Anyone else that could not pick it up earlier
Must have CURRENT West Ranch ID card to pick up yearbook. Anyone can pick up as long as the ID card is present. This is a drive-thru event. Those picking up will stay in their vehicle.
Senior Parents – We are asking your assistance in working with your student on completing the Hart District Senior Survey. This is your Wildcat’s chance to let us know about their future plans. It is important feedback we need to serve our students for years to come as well. Please encourage them to complete the form. It can only be completed by the student. Here is the link: Senior Survey Link
This Tuesday, June 1st at 7pm there will be a parent meeting for all the incoming Freshmen and Sophomore football parents via Zoom. To attend, please email Marilee Christofferson at firstname.lastname@example.org for the Zoom link or if you have any questions.

WILDCAT WELLNESS NEWS:
Summer is almost here and we know that we all can use a break from the last year plus we have been through. Obviously we want students to take some time away from school and refresh their bodies and minds. Some things to remember according to many mental health experts:
- Keep a Routine: Have a plan, but be flexible allowing time for something to look forward to each day.
- Practice Healthy Habits: Get enough sleep, eat healthy and exercise.
- Maintain a Healthy Attitude: Stay positive! Have a positive mindset to combat those negative feelings.
- Welcome Support: Make sure your teens feel they have outlets to talk about feelings.
- Limit Screen Time: It is so easy with extra time to just go to video games, cell phones and the like. Try to schedule time away from devices. As adults we need to model this for our own sanity as well.
The Wildcat Wellness Center will not be physically open during the summer, but we have some outstanding resources for you. Please check out the flyer attached to this email.
