    Superintendent’s Update

    January 2019

     

    Dear Warren Hills Community,

    The Superintendent’s Update is a new addition to our district web page. The updates will be posted monthly and will provide our community with information on district initiatives and events occurring within the Warren Hills Regional School District.

    Important Information:

    Happy New Year to all of our WH families! We hope you had an enjoyable holiday season.

    As we begin 2019, we are preparing for the 2019-2020 school year. Students and parents will be working with counselors and case managers to review and prepare course schedules for next school year. The Program of Studies guide book can be found on the district web page and will provide course descriptions to assist in the selection of courses. Also, we have two (2) scheduling nights planned. Our incoming 9th grade scheduling night is set for Monday, January 14, 2019 at 7:00 PM at the WHRHS. Our incoming 7th grade scheduling night is set for Wednesday, January 23, 2019. We encourage all to attend these informative programs.

    As a reminder, due to the inclement weather school closing on November 16, 2018 the WHRSD will be in session on Friday, February 15, 2019.

    When inclement weather occurs, school delay and/or closing information will be broadcast through Honeywell, Twitter, Facebook, Remind and posted on the District Webpage. I would encourage you to follow, like and sign up to receive messages from the district.

    High School Information:

    We will be welcoming our incoming Freshman and their parents to an informational program on Monday, January 14 at 7 pm. This program is designed to help parents learn more about our school and aid in the scheduling process.

     

    Due to our snow day in November, we have extended the end of the second marking period until January 22nd. Report cards will be available on January 30th around 3 pm.

     

    Attention class of 2019 parents & students, some of the colleges you applied to may be requesting mid-year grades.  If so, please come down to guidance to pick up and fill out the pink Mid-Year Request Form. These are located in the same wall unit as the gold transcript request forms. Local scholarships will become available at the end of January. Please check upcoming emails with more information.

     

    Our high school graduation will be here before you know it. To show our proud history, we would like to welcome members of the Warren Hills Class of 1968 & 1969. Each participant will be invited to breakfast with the Class of 2019 and sit on the field during the commencement ceremony. To sign up, visit https://www.warrenhills.org/50years or contact the HS main office. 

     

    Middle School Information:

    On Wednesday, January 23rd, the middle school will be holding a scheduling night for all incoming 7th grade students and their parents.  Students and parents will meet some key personnel as they begin this new educational journey, will learn about the different course offerings at the middle school, and will have the opportunity to request courses for the upcoming school year.  Scheduling night for students with last names beginning with the letter A-L will meet in the middle school cafeteria from 6:00pm-7:00pm and students with the last name beginning with the letter M-Z will meet from 7:30-8:30.  In case of inclement weather, scheduling night will be rescheduled for the following night on January 24th and follow the same aforementioned schedule.  

     

    The week of January 14th, our students will be voting for their peers during lunch for those students who they feel exemplify the character traits of Responsibility and Fairness, two of the Six Pillars of Character we promote and model at the middle school.  From those nominations, students will be selected to attend a Character Awards Breakfast on January 25th.

     

    The middle school band and jazz ensemble have been hard at work preparing their annual winter concert.  Please join us in the high school auditorium on January 16th at 7:00pm to hear these talented young performers as they play a number of songs for your enjoyment!  In case of inclement weather, the concert will be rescheduled for the following evening.

     

    On Friday, February 8th, the Builder's Club will be hosting their annual Valentine's Day Dance for all Warren Hills Middle School students from 7:00pm-9:00pm.  Join us for a night of great music, dancing, and other surprises.  You don't want to miss it!
