CONFERENCE TOP TEN
Only HS students and their pre-approved guests are allowed to attend. Bessie Allen students are not eligible to attend.
We will begin the master schedule asap.
Summer school/other oppportunities
I am open to other semester courses for credit as well if you are interested.
As we continue to look at courses to offer as much as we can for students please feel free to share ideas. Ramsey and Pat are looking into CAPP for Archery and CPR as it's offered at UW-Oshkosh. Others have gone to PLTW training in summer and others have investigated dual-enrollment at MPTC or FVTC=THE MORE THE BETTER!!
If you have any concerns please let me know what I can do to help.
Next year Oriole Time
Here are some first answers:
1. Run two groups of ACT prep and two groups of Work keys prep first semester so all juniors go through both by the end of first semester and will then have choices for second semester
2. Have students sign up by the end of the year for enrichment options first quarter so staff may plan (PLEASE EMAIL ME WHAT YOU'D LIKE TO TEACH OR RE-TEACH NEXT YEAR)
3. Make each enrichment/remediation a quarter so it's easier for attendance
4. Offer something for students who have the ability but are not doing their work
Parent Teacher Conferences
Key Club is sponsoring sub sandwiches for Monday for staff.
I will look to provide some sort of snack for Wednesday for staff.
Please contact parents you would like to see during conferences!
Congrats to Jenny Stahl on expecting her first child with husband, Chris.
Congrats to Pat Kolbe and his wife Lana who are expecting their second child in August.

Am I missing more? Please share!!
Thank you again for reviewing the shared ACT prep document as we all encourage our students to do their best on the ACT and WorkKeys.
Please let me know if you need anything for Oasys or your SLO or curriculum, etc.
Have a great weekend!!
