April SAT & PSAT Testing

SAT and PSAT testing will take place on 4/12 and 4/13 this year. On 4/12 only 11th grade students will be in the building to take the SAT and on 4/13 only 9th and 10th grade students will be in the building to take the PSAT and PSAT9. You will receive a detailed schedule later this month, but students will come to the building for testing in the morning and leave around lunch time. Student will have the option to purchase a grab and go lunch.

Students that are at home can work on missing assignments or complete enrichment activities posted by their teachers in Schoology or Google Classroom.

Repeated from Last Week: 23-24 Bell Schedule

Next school year, Widefield will have a revised bell schedule (shown below). Staff members from Mesa Ridge and Widefield High School worked together to align schedules to create additional course opportunities for students. The alignment will allow for students to potentially take classes at either school, or to allow teachers to teach at both schools.

Over the course of the school year, students, parents, and staff members have reviewed various proposals and provided feedback. The schedule that appears below incorporates suggestions and feedback from these groups. We will review the schedule again at the April 20th BAAC meeting. If you have questions, please feel free to join us for further clarification.

Click here to see how the schedules between the two high schools will line up and to read the Frequently Asked Questions about how this change will benefit students from both schools.
