Director of Guidance
May 2022 Charger Nation:
May is here! Students are in the works of completing the final weeks of the 21-22 school year. During the month of May, we celebrated with seniors during the Senior Awards Banquet on May 9th. Over 20 seniors received scholarships and recognition. Here in the guidance department, we couldn’t be more proud and excited for our class of 2022 graduates to complete their last day of school on the 25th. We are getting all seniors ready for commencement on June 5th. All our counselors have been meeting individually with students to make sure they are staying on track academically and ensuring their schedules are ready for the next school year. We are offering summer school opportunities to students who would like to take courses over the summer here at WNHS or online.
Mrs. Zukowski is continuing to see students regularly for individual and crisis counseling appointments as needed. She is also completing her small group counseling for students experiencing stress and anxiety in the middle of the month. Over the summer, she is excited to attend the American School Counselor Association annual conference to learn new ways to enhance the social-emotional program at the high school.
Mr. Engler is checking student requests in Skyward for errors. Mr. Engler is also monitoring senior grades heading into the last days before graduation. Summer school sign up is in full swing and soon it will be time to update student credit counts. Once the Master Schedule is set, then Mr. Engler will review each students’ schedule. One of Mr. Engler’s final tasks of the year is completing the 30A. This document accounts for funding and tracking of students in Career and Technical Education Courses.
Mrs. Tippmann is working hard to build the course schedule for next school year along with preparing for graduation. She just finished high ability parent meetings and registered PFW students for dual credit classes for the upcoming year.
