    This link will take you to the Student Loan Game Plan. Student Loan Game Plan, an interactive educational resource, which demonstrates how student loan debt may affect a student's financial future. It provides personalized real-time results and lets you develop an action plan to help reduce your need to borrow.

    Hello Students and Parents,

    It's that time of year!  The scheduling process for next year has begun for our 9th, 10th and 11th grade students here at Woodstown High School!  This week, the counselors will finish their classroom presentations, and the students have been given information on the process as well as a course selection sheet.  Please see the attached documents and look for your child's current level to access the handouts given to the students.  Attached you will also find a copy of our 2016-2017 Course Selection Sheet.

    Please take the time to review your selections with your child/parent, and follow the guidelines for selecting the appropriate classes.

    Here are some resources you can use to help in your decision making process:

    CLICK HERE to access the WHS 2016-2017 Program of Studies which offers class descriptions, prerequisites, and much more information.

    CLICK HERE to access PowerSchool.  Select "Course Registration" to select your classes.

    The deadline for selecting courses in PowerSchool is Tuesday, February 16th.  After that time, the Course Registration link will become inactive.  The counselors will then begin individual meetings with the students to discuss their choices and make changes, if needed.

    A copy of the students' course selections will be mailed home in May.  Parents can return a copy to the School Counseling Office with their signature to confirm approval for the courses.

    Any additional changes after that time can be made until Friday, June 3rd.  No schedule changes will be accepted after this date.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to make an appointment with your counselor.

    Best Regards,

    Your School Counselors

    WHS Blue Envelope Letter for 2016

     

      

    Dear Parents/Guardians of the Class of 2016:

     

    We are continuing a “Wolverine” tradition for our seniors by encouraging relatives, friends, and teachers of our 2016 graduates to honor our students through the Blue Envelope program.

    Parents/Guardians please notify grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, teachers, friends, clergy, neighbors, and anyone who has mentored or positively influenced your child’s life to send a special note of congratulations on his/her upcoming 2015 graduation. We encourage you to send a request as soon as possible to family and friends through e-mail or any means of your choosing. This will give everyone plenty of time to think of what they would like to say to the special graduate. The Renaissance Committee will carefully collect all the notes/cards/well wishes sent to the school. We will keep them safe and confidential until the Senior Breakfast where every senior will receive a large Blue Envelope filled with all the well wishes and congratulations! Please fill their Blue Envelopes! Deadline is May 15, 2016.

     

    You may photocopy or scan this letter and send it to all your family and friends. This is a surprise event for each of the graduates, so please remember to keep it confidential! Please do not delay!

    You can drop off your cards and letters to the main office or you can mail them to the school using the following information:

     

     

    STUDENT’S FULL NAME                                                                    

    c/o Ms. Nikole Vogel (student’s last name begins with A-L)  

    c/o Mrs. Coleen Coombs (student’s last name begins with M-Z)

    WHS Renaissance – BLUE LETTER ENVELOPES

    140 East Avenue

    Woodstown, NJ 08098

     

    Let’s show the Class of 2016 that they are indeed special to us, and that we acknowledge their achievements of the last thirteen years!

     

    INSTRUCTIONS FOR BLUE LETTER ENVELOPE CARDS AND LETTERS

    Please keep in mind that letters will be collected for over 200 students. It is IMPERATIVE that you follow these guidelines:

    ·       Send only cards or letters NO larger than 8”X10”

    ·       NO packages

    ·       Do not send anything of value to the school since we cannot be responsible for it (ie:   cash, checks, gift cards, etc.)

    ·       If sending several envelopes inside a larger envelope, please put the student’s full name on ALL envelopes

    ·       Keep letters and cards flat

    All cards and letters must arrive at the school by FRIDAY, MAY 15, 2016. We CANNOT accept anything after this date.   We encourage you to send your letters as soon as possible.
