Dear Husky Families,
As the first quarter draws to a close, I wanted to take the time to congratulate your students on a wonderful first quarter. This truly is a learning community. You and your student deserve a Husky High Five for supporting a very successful entertainment book and cookie dough fundraiser and the PTSA sponsored fundraisers. These funds will continue to provide students with excellent opportunities for enrichment both inside and outside of the classroom as well as to support our PRIDE program.
Please make sure you see the pages that are attached to the end of the newsletter as they explain the PRIDE program and how to earn pride points. We have made a change with regard to how we calculate the GPA requirement. We will be using the high school calculation found on the WCS website in the high school handbook which gives specific points for + and – grades. We will still utilize the middle school GPA for report cards and thus not have an impact on the end of year awards. The rationale behind this was to give our students an understanding of how their grades would look if they were in high school and also extend our students to achieve the highest grade possible.
As we continue to make changes to improve, we will be sure to make you aware through newsletters that are posted on our webpage . Please continue to utilize PowerSchool online to monitor your student’s progress and our website at www.wcsoh.org for announcements, sports schedules and other pertinent information. You may also contact your student’s teachers, guidance counselor, Ms. Tankovich or me via email or by calling the main office line with any questions or concerns. Principal Heritage Middle School
