Students who hope to take concurrent enrollment classes in math, science, history, or English must be proficient on the most current Iowa Assessments and meet the CPT or ACT requirements for the classes as set by Western Iowa Tech Community College.
Students in career and technical concurrent classes do not need to meet these requirements. If you have questions regarding concurrent classes, please contact the guidance office or the principal’s office.
Please attend parent-teacher conferences on November 5 and 9. Teachers will be available from 5:00 to 8:30 PM. You may set up appointments by calling 546-4153 between 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM. Appointments will be honored before walk-ins. Report cards will also be handed out those nights.
Hopefully you have had a chance to talk with your child’s teachers through email, on the phone, or in person. If not, please take the time to contact them, especially if you have a concern about how your child is doing. I have asked the teachers to do the same. Also, feel free to contact Mr. Utesch or me if something comes up.
