First Semester Midterm Updates

October 18, 2023

 Change from trimester to semester:  West Noble High School has transitioned to semester-long courses for 2023-24.  This means that the grade report you are receiving at this time is merely a PROGRESS report in each class.  These grades will continue to change until the end of the first semester, which is December 21, 2023.  At that point first semester grades will be finalized and begin to show up on student transcripts and be figured into each student’s GPA/class ranking.

Skyward Family Access: Your Skyward account is a great source of information. You can find student grades, schedules, and lunch fees on Skyward. We suggest taking some time to familiarize yourself with the different tabs in Family Access. Please reach out with any questions you have in regard to Skyward.

 

 Counseling Staff:  The West Noble counseling department has made a few changes this year. Mrs. Flecker is now the academic and personal counselor for 9th and 10th grade students. Mrs. Brown has transitioned into the position of academic and personal counselor for students in grade 11 and twelve; however, Mrs. Tippmann and Mrs. Brown will share the Class of 2024, with Mrs. Tippmann continuing to support the academic progress of students with the last names A-L until their graduation in June.  Mrs. Tippmann also will continue as the Coordinator of Guidance Services, spearheading dual credits, scholarships, the master schedule, and many other responsibilities related to the efficient running of the Guidance Office. 

 

Your school counselors are available to meet with students and parents for a number of reasons. School counselors provide assistance to students who are in need of individual academic planning and goal setting such as understanding diploma types or classes, planning for the future, applying to post-secondary programs, etc..  We are also available for students who are experiencing stress, anxiety, grief/loss, and a number of other major challenges and transitions.  We want to remind all students and parents that they can fill out a communication form to request an appointment with the school counselors or administrators.

 

Important Reminders:

● Seniors are permitted two excused individual college visit days. Juniors are permitted  one excused college visit day in the spring. The form for college visits is available in the Attendance Office. 

● Seniors should be working on  college applications now! Many colleges have a priority deadline of November 1st.  College applications should be completed BEFORE beginning most scholarship searches.  Many scholarships will begin their application processes in the months of November, December, and January.

● Students:  CHECK YOUR EMAIL EVERY DAY WHILE IN HIGH SCHOOL AND YOUR GRADE LEVEL GOOGLE CLASSROOM ONCE A MONTH! The most likely reason you will miss an important deadline or opportunity is that you have not checked your email regularly!  This is vitally important for seniors, but very important for all grade levels.
