Course Verification Sheet

 

The second course request verifications will be posted in Parent Access (PAC) Wednesday, April 26, 2016.   Please login to Parent Access (PAC) to view your student’s course requests by clicking on the course requests tab.  We ask that you review the course requests with your student and verify that they are accurate.  Please double check that the fall semester (A part) and the spring semester (B part) match and are on the request sheet as appropriate. 

 

Advanced Courses

 

Students who registered for an advanced course (Honors, PreAP, Dual Credit, or AP) and whose parents have not approved the Advanced Course Agreement have been removed from the course. 

 

Parents of students who have changed to an Advanced Course since the previous verification will need to approve the Advanced Course Agreement by going to Parent Access Center (PAC). Please click on the 4-yr. plan tab.  At the top of the screen, you will see a bar indicating the number of ACA courses to approve (2 for every course because of the A and B).  When you click on the bar, the ACA will appear and a box with all eligible courses will be displayed.  You and your student should review the ACA and its requirements prior to approving all advanced courses.  Please make sure that your student is committed to the time and effort it takes to be successful in the course.  Also, understand that the intention is for all students that sign up for an advanced course will remain in the course for the entire year.  Please be aware that we have a specific process for students and parents to go through if the student is struggling.  The goal is always to work out a plan for the student to be successful and remain in the course.  Once you have reviewed all information in the ACA and both parent and student agree to the requirements, please select each course (A and B) for all the courses that are advanced in the student’s 4-yr. plan.  Each selection will have a verification pop up to click ok to sign.  Any course whose ACA was not electronically signed by you (both A and B portions) or failure to complete the ACA electronically will result in the advance course being removed from your student’s course requests and 4-year plan prior to the next course request verification

 

Cancelled Courses

Course offerings depend on student requests and courses without sufficient interest may still be dropped. In this event, the cancelled course will be dropped from your child's four year plan and replaced with one of the student's chosen alternates.

 

 

Changes to the Course Verification Sheet

 

If you find an error in the course requests or would like to make a change, please email your student’s high school counselor (see the bottom of the page) the request and she will make the change in your student’s 4- yr. plan.  The change should show up in your student’s 4-yr. plan within 3 school days. 

 

We will send out a final course verification after the deadline for course request changes.

 

 

Important Dates

 

May 15 – Deadline for all changes to course requests and submission of ACA’s.  No more changes after this date.

 

May 27 – Final course requests will be posted in PAC

LUNCH DROP-OFF POLICY:

Safety is the upmost importance for our students. We just wanted to make you aware that we are putting more enforcement on our lunch policy that has been in place to help with the safety aspects during our lunch periods.

 

For the safety of our students, all lunches brought in to school for your student will need to be signed in at the front office.   Lunches will be taken to the AP office for the students to pick-up. Our students know that the AP office is the location to pick up items.  This is for the safety of our students to keep those who do not belong on campus from getting in to the building.  Please know that the more activity through our secure doors the more at risk our facility is at and we need to keep everyone safe.  Thank you for your help and cooperation.

Cavalier Challenge:

There are so many ways we can give to the people around us. It can be in a big way or it can be small. The size of the give does not really matter because anytime we help another even in small ways we change the world.

LOCAL STUDENTS PERFORM WELL ON NATIONAL SPANISH EXAMS

 

Congratulations to several world language students from The Woodlands College Park High School (“TWCP”) who attained national recognition for excellent performance on the 2016 National Spanish Examinations.

 

Students from TWCP have a long history of high achievement on these exams.  This year, students taught by Carmen Kelleher, Emily Gasper, and Rhonda Womack earned a total of 18 gold, 18 silver and 17 bronze medals along with many honorable mentions.  “Attaining a medal or honorable mention for any student on the National Spanish Examinations is very prestigious,” said Kevin Cessna-Buscemi, National Director of the Exams, “because the exams are the largest of their kind in the United States with over 160,000 students participating in 2016.”

STUDENT ACHIEVES PERFECT SCORE

 

Additionally, special recognition goes to Shirley Marino Lee, TWCP sophomore, for having attained a perfect score on the Level 4 Exam. More than 20,000 students competed at Level 4, and only five in the nation received the Perfect Score medal.  Her teacher is Rhonda Womack.

 

The National Spanish Examinations are administered each year in grades 6 through 12, and are sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese.
