WCMS Counseling Center

Faculty Newsletter: January 2016

At risk letters

We will be sending at risk letters home soon for any student who failed Semester 1 in two or more core classes. We do request parents to sign them and return them to the Counseling Center.

Transfer grades

Many new students have joined us after Christmas break. Please be sure to enter their transfer grades in as soon as possible. Additionally, if any student changed periods, you must also update their grade in your gradebook as well.


Be sure to let Nurse Sherry know how much you appreciate her on Nurse Appreciation Day (Jan. 21). It seems like she always has a line outside her door of sick children!
