Schedule Changes

Each year a new master schedule is created to accommodate students' course requests. Counselors meet with all students in February to review course requests. Faculty members are employed, textbooks are purchased, and rooms are assigned based on these requests. 

For these reasons, course requests for the 2019-2020 school year are finalized on May 1, 2019
Changes after that date will only be allowed for the following reasons:

1) You haven't met the prerequisite for a course
2) You have already taken and passed that course

Course Level Changes

On occasion, once the school year has started, students may need to change the level of the class in which they are enrolled (ex. from an Honors to regular level course). Level changes are a collaborative effort between parents, the student, the teacher, and the school counselor and cannot be approved until all parties involved have been able to discuss the change. Level changes will be made whenever it is deemed appropriate by all involved.  

The letter grade earned at the time of the level change will accompany the student to the new class. Before a course level change can be approved the student must follow the Educational Problem Solving process found on page 15 in the WUHS Course Guide.

Awareness Week
Did you know that number sense is an innate talent? According to David Sousa's  How the Brain Learns Mathematics,  two capabilities humans are born with include language and number sense. Sousa states "Because we are born with number sense, most of us have the potential to be a lot better at arithmetic and mathematics than we think". From recent studies, we also know that the adaptability of our brain allows for growth in acquiring new skills and information throughout an individual's life.

Jessica Hammersmith
Shout out to Wilmot's very own Library Media Specialist, Jessica Hammersmith. Mrs. Hammersmith presented at the Wisconsin Educational Media & Technology Association (WEMTA) Conference. Her presentation "Dewey have to?" discussed the art and challenge of losing the Dewey decimal system in a high school library and adpoting a genre-based organization. Way to go, Mrs. Hammersmith!
