Class of 2022 Freshman Orientation February 26

Freshmen Orientation for the incoming Class of 2022 will be held at Winnebago High School at 6 p.m. on Monday, February 26. The WHS Academic Advisors will present registration information and materials for the 2018-2019 school year to 8th grades students on February 21 and 22 in science classes.

Please look for several forms to come home: a pre-printed Registration Form plus driver education information and a specific Driver Education Application. The Registration Form lists required core courses. Placement recommendations are made using courses taken and grades earned during middle school, standardized test scores (i.e. PARCC) and 8th grade teacher recommendations. Feel free to contact teachers regarding placement; we welcome discussion of best choices for each student. Students and their family will complete elective choices on the Registration Form.

Completed forms are due to the middle school office by Thursday, March 1 at 3 p.m.

The Course Description Book for the 2018-19 school year is available on the Winnebago District website on the high school page. This book has detailed information about classes and sequences. We encourage all students and families to know the graduation requirements and to plan a four year sequence of classes based upon requirements and future goals. Please read the Schedule Change Policy that is included in the Course Description Book and also included on the Registration Form. We ask that students expect to take the classes that they request. Careful choices now ensure class availability plus proper staffing and funding.

Please note that Driver Education requires a specific application that is separate from the class Registration Form. The Driver Education Application is due to the middle school office by Thursday, March 1  at 3 p.m. Students who turn in a Driver Education Application after March 1 will automatically be placed upon a waiting list regardless of age or grade level.
