Senior All Night Party Meeting

There will be a planning meeting for the Senior All Night Grad Party on Wednesday, March 8th at 7 p.m. in the Media Center. This is an all-volunteer committee and we are in desperate need of more volunteers to help the fundraising and party planning go smoothly. Also, we are losing 3 of our 6 committee members after this year; and the other 3 are done next year; which leaves nobody to coordinate this for the 2025 graduates.

For more information, you can ‘Like’ the Facebook Group page “Westwood All-Night Grad Planners”, or reach out to Tia Rhodda at 906-362-0501.

Exam Exemption Update

In addition to the attendance piece, an academic component has been added to the exam exemption opportunity for students. Students who have earned a grade of 94% or better in that class will have the option to exempt from that exam. Students can exempt from up to two exams in total.

NWEA Testing

Students in grades 9 and 10 will begin NWEA testing this week.
