Message from Mr. McDermott

Good afternoon Wildcats,

This week students received course cards for the 2022-23 school year. The completed course cards are due Friday, February 11. Please take some time to review the course selections with your student and reach out to your grade-level counselor if you have questions about course selection. Also, we are nearing our FSA ELA and Algebra retake testing window. Passing these tests or getting a concordant score are required to graduate. If your student needs to pass these assessments, please help us ensure they are present during testing.

Mr. McDermott

Course Cards Due 2/11/22

Parents, please make sure your student returns their completed and signed course card tomorrow, Friday, 2/11/22 so we can begin planning for the 22/23 school year.

Congratulations to all of our Winter Sports Champions! Welcome to Wesley Champel!
