Chris Hanson and Lisa Johnson, your WHS Educational Technologists, just finished our 11th parent webinar this week. This last one focuses on the topic of preparing for college and/or career and looks at the good and bad of social media and some ways a students could amp up their professional communication with crafting a resume or portfolio.

 

The full webinar is linked here (we had a few technical difficulties with this one so skip to 2:25 and you will be good to go).

 

All of our 11 archived webinars are available for you here.

COUNSELING / COURSE SELECTION

AP Exam Registration opened February 4 and closes March 4. Students who are enrolled in an AP (not PreAP) course and who want to take the exam in May must register and pay. We encourage you to register early; a late fee will be assessed beginning February 25. Learn more and register here.

 

 

SAVE THE DATES

 

  • March 26 is the NACAC College Fair Austin from 5:30-8:00pm at the Palmer Events Center. You can view a full list of colleges represented and register here. (Registering gives students a barcode that can be scanned by college reps at colleges of interest -- this gives colleges a student's contact information in order to communicate with them.)

 

  • April 1 will be our Junior Parent AND Student Night in the Concert Hall (PAC) at 6pm -- counselors hope to see you and your junior there.
