COMMUNITY EVENTS

FOOD SERVICE

FUNDRAISING- SCHOLARSHIP AWARD (SOCIAL STUDIES)

The Social Studies department is fundraising to create a scholarship award for a student pursuing a degree in a social studies field.  We hope students, former students, and parents/guardians contribute to this fund.  The goal will be to reach $10,000 so we can establish a sustaining endowment.  For more information, look at the Oshkosh West Social Studies Facebook Page.  


 

GUIDANCE OFFICE

ACADEMIC

Attention Juniors! 

If you are looking to retake the ACT, there is another test date coming up in June. You need to log in to your ACT account (the same one that you created to take the ACT at school back in March) and then you can register for another test date:  https://my.act.org/ account/signin?location=https: //my.act.org 

There will not be another opportunity to take the ACT here at West, but often UW Oshkosh is listed as a testing location, so local options do exist. 

IMPORTANT REMINDER! When you register to take the ACT again, you will need to upload a photo and then you will need to print your registration "ticket" to bring along with you on the date of the test. You did not need to complete those items when you took the ACT here at West, but if you are retaking the ACT, you NEED to complete those steps.

For further information on upcoming test dates, please visit:  https://www.act.org/ content/act/en/products-and- services/the-act/registration. html

SPORTS INFORMATION

We will have some of our fall sports seasons overlapping with our traditional spring season in the near future.  We spent a lot of time working on the details concerning how we can allow students to do both sports during the overlapping seasons.  The link below will take you to a document created by a committee of head coaches with input from our athletic trainers.  This document is meant to provide guidance for students, parents and coaches during the overlapping seasons.  If you are a student that will be involved in two seasons at the same time this spring, please be sure to talk with your coaches now to come up with a plan.  If you have any questions please contact Mr. Jodarski at brad.jodarski@oshkosh.k12.wi.us or 920-424-0143.
