What do you love about fall?

Joy

For this months theme we are talking about what brings us joy during the festive fall season. For a quick read, take a look at the Psychology Today article that discusses 10 smart self-care tips to avoid stress and increase joy. :)

Academic Resources

WLHS Virtual Tutor Center

We are excited to announce that the Tutor Center will be providing tutoring beginning Monday, October 12th.


The Tutor Center will be available from 2:30 - 4:00 PM Monday - Thursday, and we are scheduling appointments on the half hour. All tutoring will be via Zoom and weekly links will be provided on our Google Classroom Tutor Center.


On Monday and Wednesday we will be offering tutoring in math, English, and social studies.

On Tuesday and Thursday we will be offering tutoring in math, science, and world languages.

We have tutors that are available to assist in elective classes as well.

Students can also join the Tutor Center without an appointment, but it will be first come, first served.


Steps to get started:


1. If you would like to sign up for some extra help, please join the Google Classroom: Tutor Center, class code v4tpqon.


2. Once you are in the Tutor Center classroom, please fill out the Request for Tutoring Form.


Friendly reminder...

This will be our first week of trying this out and we know there may be a few bumps in the road. Thanks for helping us try a new system and we know it is going to be a great service to our students!

If you are interested in tutoring other students or have questions, please email Ms. Matin at matinm@wlwv.k12.or.us.
