Sophomore Parent Workshop: If you requested an individual sophomore conference as part of our 10th grade guidance curriculum, please be sure to review the "10th Grade Conference Power Point" located under the "Parent Resources" tab above prior to your scheduled meeting time.
Preliminary spring semester schedules will be distributed in Homeroom on Wednesday, January 14th. Woodbridge High School schedules students for the entire school year in the Fall. Preliminary schedules do not list teachers or class periods, they are meant only to confirm the classes in which a student is enrolled for Spring. There are extremely limited opportunities for schedule changes in the Spring, and are related only to student misplacement in a class. Preference changes, (ex: "I would prefer to have English 2nd period."or "I would prefer a different elective."), and requests for specific teachers are unable to be accommodated. Students with any questions or concerns about their Spring Schedule should see their counselor during lunch only from January 14 - 16th in the Media Center.
Senior Community College Registration Information: Transfer Connections and College Connections students can access the Power Point presentation from the tutorial workshop here. Please see Mrs. Carrington in the counseling office for questions about Transfer Connections or Mrs. Barro for questions about College Connections.
Please help WHS Counselors by taking the following short survey:
Teen Stress: Although stress is a normal part of life, and teen stress has always been an issue, the intensity and frequency of those stressors have increased in recent years. According to a Feb. 2014 study by the American Psychological Association, approximately 1/3 of teens polled described their level of stress increasing over time and over 40% of that same group report not doing enough to manage their stress. What can you do? Students and families are welcome to talk with their assigned counselor about stress related issues and possible coping strategies. Resources and information about teen stress are also available under the "parent resources" tab above.
