WEB 2nd Training for Orientation - 9/1/16
Hello Wonderful WEB leaders! Let's get ready. See you on Thursday 9/1 from 9am-11:30am in the gym. Please bring water and dress accordingly for the weather, if it's hot, dress COOL!
At this training,we will:
  • Distribute WEB shirts
  • Prepare the activity bags
  • Assign partner groups
  • Assign 6th grade group names
  • Practice Orientation Day activities and procedures
Reminder that Orientation Day is September 6 and is a probably one of the biggest and important events of the year not only for WEB, but for 6th graders. Right now it has been requested that WEB leaders attend all or most of the day on 9/6. Good news, buses are running that day so you won't need a ride. Please arrive early @ 8:30, if you can get a ride and be there for 6th graders getting off the bus. You may want to bring a lunch unless you get a hot lunch anyway.
Take care and see you soon,
Mrs. R
High School Forecasting Season Is Here!
8th graders will receive a Power Point presentation this Friday, March 4, from Barlow High School Counselors, during first period classes. Students will be made aware of the process to forecast and be given a current overview of classes, electives, and Honors and AP choices. Catalogues and forecasting sheets will also be distributed.
The next visit on March 17 will take students into their Student Vue accounts to enter their choice of electives.
It would be great if any absences and appointments could be made with these dates in mind. Thank you!

Does your student have good attendance?
Oregon Law (ORS 339.010) states all children between the ages of 7 and 18 years who have not completed the 12th grade are required to attend regularly in public, full-time school during the entire school term. This law further requires that the attendance of students be satisfactory.


Research has shown that there is a strong relationship between 6th grade attendance and on-time graduation rates. The Oregon Governor’s office has included the chronic absence rate among sixth graders and ninth graders as a key performance indicator in the achievement compacts that districts are signing with the state.

Chronic absenteeism is defined as missing 10% or more of enrolled days.
Researchers found that students who improve their attendance during the middle grade years have better outcomes in high school than those who simply improve their test scores, even when the students start out at the same level. The report concludes that middle schools should invest in strategies to improve attendance. Please visit the link below for more info on this topic or see Files section below under Counselor forms and Resources for Parent Attendance strategies flyer.
