Successfully Completing the UW System College Application:

The sessions are offered at eight different dates and times. Students need only sign-up for one webinar. These  sessions were very popular last year so registration is required. Students and their families may visit  uwhelp.wisconsin.edu/liveline to register .
Attention  Class of 2019

Students in the class of 2019 are encouraged to take the 2017 PSAT/NMSQT test this  coming fall. The PSAT/NMSQT measures critical thinking skills that are important for  success in college, including critical reading, math problem-solving, and writing skills.  The 2017 PSAT/NMSQT is also the qualifying test that students must take to enter  National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) competitions for college scholarships  that will be awarded in 2019.

Taking the PSAT/NMSQT enables students to:

Get feedback about important academic skills
Seek information from colleges

Enter scholarship competitions

Initiate the college-planning process

The test will be administered at Wilmot Union High School on 
Wednesday, October 11, 2017.
The test is approximately three hours in length and will be taken during the school 
day. There is a $16.00 fee to take the test, checks should be made payable to Wilmot Union High School.

Students interested in taking the 2017 PSAT/NMSQT need to sign 
up with their school counselor by June 9, 2017.

 
A Teachable Moment: Using "13 Reasons Why" to Initiate a Helpful Conversation About Suicide Prevention and Mental Health

The trending Netflix series "13 Reasons Why," based on a young adult novel of the same name, is raising some questions and concerns among students and parents about mental health and suicide. The series revolves around 17-year-old Hannah Baker, who takes her own life and leaves behind audio recordings for 13 people she says were in some way part of the reason she killed herself. Each tape recounts painful events in which one or more of the 13 individuals played a role.  Producers for the show say they hope the series can help those who may be struggling with thoughts of suicide. However, the series, which many teenagers are binge watching without adult guidance and support, is raising concerns from suicide prevention experts about the potential risks posed by the sensationalized treatment of youth suicide.

We think it is important that families have a frank, but fact based conversation about mental health and suicide prevention with their children. Therefore, we would like to provide you with the following document put out by the National Alliance on Mental Health (NAMI).  This resource offers parents and guardians talking points to guide such a discussion within your family.

Do not hesitate to contact your child’s School Counselor if you have specific concerns or questions.

Congratulations to the Wilmot Union High School Forensics Team!  

They traveled to the UW-Madison campus for the state tournament on April 24th and returned with much success.  Receiving gold medals (for a perfect 25 out of 25) were Jacob Brockway for his Demonstration Speech on throwing discuss, Rowan Suhre for his Moments in History Speech on RuPaul, Sami Christiansen for her Storytelling entry of "Click Clack Moo", and the Group Interpretation team of Mason Worklan, Emily Hershelmen, Makayla Wedge-Damon, and Ella Harper-Scheihl.  Their presentation was a reading of the Declaration of Independence.  Getting a silver medal (a score of 24 out of 25) was Maggie Gerlach's Poetry entry of "The Highwayman" and Kenzie Flinn with her Moments in History speech about the suicide of Kurt Cobain.

This is the second gold medal at state for Mason Worklan and Emily Hershelmen.  They are well on their way to a special award given to students who score a 25 out of 25 at state four years in a row.

Interested in Forensics for next year?  See a team member, Mrs. Tilsner or Mr. Kehoe for more information.  We are open to everyone and have a wide range of opportunities to practice getting over that fear of public speaking and moving onward to the confidence that grows with each performance.
