  • Williams Field High School will be hosting an NCAA Eligibility Meeting on Monday, September 29, 2014 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. in the Williams Field High School Auditorium. 

     

    If your student has aspirations of participating in NCAA Division I or II athletics, they will need to be certified by the NCAA Eligibility Center. Your student will need to qualify academically and they will also need to be cleared as an amateur student-athlete.

     

    This informational meeting is an opportunity to learn about the academic and athletic eligibility requirements to be considered an NCAA qualifier at a Division I or Division II college/university as well as the college recruitment process. There have been major changes in the eligibility process for student-athletes beginning with the 2016 cohort (current juniors) and beyond, which will be clearly explained. It is strongly recommended that student athletes and parents attend to fully understand the academic expectations.

     

     

    We look forward to seeing you on September 29th.

  • The PSAT (Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test) is a practice for the SAT and is the test used to determine National Merit Scholars only when the test is taken during a student’s junior year.  All college bound juniors and sophomores should strongly consider taking the PSAT to practice and experience what types of questions are asked on the SAT.  The SAT is the college entrance test that many students take for college admissions so practicing now is one of the ways the best way to begin the process of getting ready for college.  Juniors who achieve high scores on this test can qualify as a National Merit Scholar, National Achievement Scholar, or National Hispanic Scholar, where scholarship money may be awarded as a result.  The PSAT is a national test and juniors from all over the country will be taking this test October.

    The PSAT will be given at Williams Field High School on Saturday, October 18, 2014. The test will begin at approximately 8:00am and will end at approximately 11:30AM.  Students MUST have a photo ID in order to be admitted into the test center. Students can use an approved calculator.

  • Williams Field High School and All Higley Schools Earn 'A' Ratings from
    Arizona Department of Education
     
    The Arizona Department of Education recently released school performance rankings based on spring 2014 AIMS scores. We are proud to announce that all elementary, middle and high schools in the Higley Unified School District earned “A” ratings.

    The news was announced as nearly 12,000 students in preschool through high school began their first day of the 2014-15 school year.
     
    For the last four years, the Arizona Department of Education has rated school performances with letter grades based on academic growth and student achievement. This is the fourth year in a row that the Higley Unified School District has earned an “A” grade. Higley Unified School District was the top point earner for large, public school districts in Arizona this year. In fact, five of our eight elementary schools are in the Top 10 percent of all K-6 schools in Arizona.
     
    “We are elated to share our ‘A’ grades with Higley families, the Towns of Gilbert and Queen Creek and the entire Valley,” said Superintendent Dr. Denise Birdwell. “It is a testament to the work of our teachers, staff, students and families. Finding out Higley is the top, large school district in the state brings recognition to the hard work of the entire Higley schools community. From students and their parents to the teachers, bus drivers, classroom aides and school principals, we wish to thank everyone for their efforts that contribute to making Higley the best district in the Valley.”

  • Parentvue
     
    Parents can see student grades and attendance records through a system called “ParentVue.” Teachers post assignments and grades, along with daily attendance, on the system that can then be viewed by parents through a home computer or cell phone. Teachers post links to ParentVue (sometimes referred to as "Online grades") through their teacher webpages. You can also reach ParentVue through this link.

    To use ParentVue, parents need a personal code created by their student’s school. Please visit your school office for more information.

  • District Governing Board sets calendar for 2014/15, 2015/16 and 2016/17
     
    The Higley Unified School District board voted Tuesday to maintain the current school calendar configuration for the 2014/15 school year and move to a modified year-round calendar in 2015/16.

    The board approved calendars for the next three years based on the recommendation to the Superintendent by the calendar committee.

    With the vote, the 2014/15 school year will begin Aug. 4, 2014, and will end on May 21, 2015. There will be one-week fall and spring breaks and a two-week winter break.

    The committee used a survey to determine calendar preferences of parents, teachers and staff, and students. Based on those results, the committee made the recommendation for a transition year to make sure families have time to plan.

    The adopted calendar for 2015/16 includes a start date on July 27, 2015, and an end date on May 26, 2016, with two week fall, winter and spring breaks. The adopted calendar for the 2016/17 includes a start date on July 25, 2016, and an end date on May 25, 2017, with two week fall, winter and spring breaks.
     
    The board did ask that the standing calendar committee revisit the 2016/17 calendar to see if the end of the first semester can coincide with the start of winter break.

  • Parental Communication

    In an effort to help your child be more successful in class and as a part of our WFHS school community, I would like you to use the following parent tools:

    1) E-Alerts: Our school sends out automated email alerts for various school functions like dances, athletics, testing dates, yearbook sales, etc., but you must be on the list to receive them. To register go to husd.org > click on the silver “parents” link under the orange bar under the photos. Click on the E-Alert link > fill out the form.

    2) ParentVUE: Our schools use a software program called Synergy (Genesis), which compiles student grades, attendance, transcripts, and contact information. Teachers may include digital documents, classroom assignments, points and percentages, and individual feedback and comments. To register you need to get an “Activation Key” from the Front Office (480) 279.8000

    3) Teacher Pages: All teachers in our district have their own teacher website. These pages will include digital versions of important documents for the class. To view a teacher’s webpage, select “Teacher Pages” located on the top toolbar > select the teacher’s name which you would like to view their webpage. You will find their contact information as well as links to any electronic assignments in the left hand toolbar on their page.

    All of these options are wonderful tools provided by the school and the district. Please utilize these methods of communication as to ensure your child's success through the 2013-2014 school year.

  • Student Delivery and Drop Off

     
    High School Parents,

    I am writing today to share with you a change in our practice at the high school regarding deliveries to students.

    Deliveries will no longer be accepted for any items.  In order to ensure a safe and sanitary environment that supports and maintains the health and welfare of all of our students, they are expected to come prepared for the school day.  Our offices are not equipped with the necessary equipment and staffing to maintain the amount of delieveries that were recieved daily during previous years.  In the past, many items were not picked up by the students which left the administrative office responsible for these items.  It is equally difficult to accommodate deliveries with all the other activity that takes place in the administrative office.

    As a reminder, our high school is a closed campus.  Please visit with your student about what that means in terms of not being able to leave the school, unless checked out by a parent or guardian, during their school day.  Once a student arrives on campus, they are required to stay on campus until their school day comes to a close.

    As we look to enhance options for students, we will begin exploring ways that student dining needs can be addressed to expand variety and choice.

    I thank you in advance for supporting this significant change in the front office where we strive to improve our service to you, our students, and guests to the campus.

    Respectfully,

     

    Terri Wattawa

    Principal
