June 2020
From Principal Boran
Welcome to the end of the 2020 school year.  What a year!
I am slowly returning to work after total knee replacement surgery (I'm healing very well and making solid progress daily) after three weeks off.  During that time, I've had a chance to read, think, and organize my thoughts as we begin to plan for the return to school in the fall.  I have also spent the past few nights watching peaceful civil protest turn into violence at home and across the country.  I have thought about our role at West in addressing issues of systemic inequality, and I know that the time for us to act is now...

Yearbook Distribution & Student Materials Drop-off
As you know, the last day of school for students is June 3rd.  Regarding students returning instructional materials and picking up yearbooks, this will be done by grade level on the following dates: 
June 4 - Seniors
  *It is important that all seniors come on this day to clear obligations so you can pick up your diploma on June 12th. 
June 5 - Juniors
June 8 - Sophomores
June 9 - Freshmen
June 12 - All students pick up requested materials left in lockers and seniors pick up diplomas.
 
*If you need materials from your locker, and have not yet requested them, please contact Natalie in the Ash Office at nkloranger@madison.k12.wi.us.  No students are allowed in the building. 

Previously ordered yearbooks will also be available on these days for pick-up. All seniors will receive a yearbook.

Are you planning to work or volunteer on a regular basis over the summer?  Are you interested in getting more out of the experience?  Work based learning offers students the opportunity to earn credit through a hybrid of supervised work experience, Google Classroom assignments, and in-person meetings with a school-based coordinator & workplace mentor.

National Honor Society
Congratulations to the 130 new inductees to West High's National Honor Society! They have worked hard to not just propel themselves with impressive scholarship (3.5GPA and above), but to provide strong character, leadership and service. In fact, nearly 10,000 hours of service to others and the earth were recorded just in their applications to join this year! All of us at West are proud to teach, assist and learn with these future influencers who got their start as Regents at 30 Ash. Applause also goes out to the parents and families of NHS members--and non members--who continue to love your children forward in ways that make for a more honorable society!
