Dear Wamogo Families and Friends,
Our school year is off to a great start! We only have one more day in our schedule rotation and we will have completed the first of many four-day schedules for the 2016-2017 school year. Thank you for your patience as we have strived to create full academic schedules for all of our students comprised of the requisite core classes and desired elective offerings.
We need your help getting updated information and authorizations for your students. Please complete the required forms that are available through Family I.D., which is located on our web page or can be found by clicking here. If you have any difficulty creating or finding your account, please call Family I.D. directly at 1-888-800-5583.
We encourage students to become actively involved in the school's culture by choosing to participate in co-curricular activities of interest to them. Wamogo has much to offer including athletics, clubs, and the arts. Students may also choose to be involved in school government. At the upcoming class meetings on September 14, students will be choosing class officers for grades 9 through 11. Interested students should see the appropriate class advisors for specifics about campaigning for class office. Class advisors are: Grade 9--Scott Brady, Grade 10--Sue Clarkin and Shawn Tobin, Grade 11--Stephanie Pixley and Alicia Robinson, Grade 12--Steven Bagley and Carly Tutolo. Students are encouraged to listen to the daily announcements outlining the various opportunities at Wamogo. Daily announcements can also be found on the homepage of the Wamogo website.
Students will be meeting with us in grade level meetings on September 8. At those meetings, we will be reviewing school policies and procedures. Emphasis will be on educating all students about their rights and responsibilities as members of the Wamogo community. Students will receive updated information regarding the policies for attendance, academic integrity, drugs, tobacco and alcohol use, fighting, cellphone use, theft, dress code, and bullying. If students have lingering questions about any of the information presented at the grade level meetings, they should see one of us for clarification. Please click here for a district notice regarding building protocol.
The staff looks forward to sharing course expectations at the annual open house on September 22 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. You will have an opportunity to meet the incoming principal, Jaime Rivera in addition to following the academic schedule for your students. A schedule for the evening will be shared next week.
In subsequent e-blasts, we will be sharing interesting and important happenings representative of both the academic and co-curricular aspects of Wamogo.
Stay tuned for the next e-blast. We hope to see you at the annual Wamogo Open House on September 22.
