We're excited about our new communication tool and learning management system and we're working hard to implement its use this year. PlusPortals is replacing Edline and will be the student and family portal that allows teachers to share course information and assignments as well as detailed information specific to individual students like attendance reports, progress reports and grades. HS Parents and students have been sent access information via email. MS student and family access is coming soon. Questions? Contact Candace Coburn at 457-1317. Visit our PlusPortals site.
Fifteen Spanish exchange students and their two adult chaperones are getting ready to head back to Spain after the successful 2 1/2 week exchange. The students from the Instituto Secundario D'Aran, a secondary school in Vielha, Spain, arrived in Woodstock on August 30th and stayed with host families for two weeks. They attended classes at WUHSMS and visited Boston, Burlington, and other locations in the Woodstock area. Vielha is located in the north eastern part of Spain in the Pyrenees mountains approximately 4 hours from Barcelona and one hour from the french border. In April, Spanish language students at WUHS will travel to Vielha for a two-week stay while French language students continue the successful exchange with our sister school in Saint-Gaudens, France. The exchange is in it's 3rd year and plans are underway for our Woodstock students to travel in Spain and France for a cultural exchange in April. Click on the photo to view the entire gallery.
Congratulations to all incoming ninth graders and the class of 2020. You are bringing your individuality and your amazing talents to a diverse and vibrant WUHS community. Being an incoming freshman can be a stressful experience. Fortunately, WUHS offers all ninth graders a chance to familiarize themselves with teachers, other students, and learn about advisory, our school code of conduct, and how technology is used. By participating in the 9th Grade Orientationyou are preparing for a smooth beginning to your freshmen year.
After you have had a chance to get to each of your classes once over the first two days of school - all 9th graders will have an in-school field trip for an orientation day of fun activities to fully introduce you to the high school experience and answer any questions you may have. School starts Wednesday, August 26 and we look forward to 9th Grade Orientation on Friday, August 28 from 8:00-2:45 at WUHS.
