It is with great pleasure that I welcome you and your child to the 2013-2014 school year at W.E.B. DuBois High School. In spite of budget cuts and cost increases, we will continue to provide programs and resources to meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of our students in the 21st century. I implore you to strongly encourage your child to take advantage of free opportunities that will enhance their education and better prepare them for a career, college or both in a very competitive world. Many students will be competing for the same jobs, scholarships, and colleges.
Make sure your child: • Arrives to school on time. (School will begin at 9:00 a.m. and end at 3:50 p.m. for the 2013-2014 school year.) • Comes prepared with a loose-leaf notebook, pencil and pens and a positive attitude. • Gives their best and seeks support when needed. • Is respectful and follows school rules. • Resolves differences in a non-violent manner by notifying an adult, counselor, or administrator. • Owns their own learning. We need the support of our parents, guardians and partners to make this a school year full of successes!
