Week Ending 3/15
Some updates from UHS this week:
Course Selections Updates
Students at UHS are currently enrolling in courses for 2018-19. A full listing of resources for scheduling can be found on the school website, linked here: https://sites.google.com/a/uxbridge.k12.ma.us/the-uxbridge-high-school/scheduling
For questions about individual course recommendations, please contact teachers. Questions about programs overall can be directed to the counselor.
There has been some confusion about whether some classes will count toward graduation requirements if taken in grade 8. If the class is a class that would have typically counted toward graduation requirements and are taken alongside upperclassmen (i.e. Intro to Graphic Design, Intro to Engineering Design, Band, etc.), those courses would help meet graduation and credit requirements. We are currently researching the impact of Spanish I, but we will have clarification on that next week. Our expectation is that Spanish I will also meet both the college and graduation requirements.

Visit from Harlem Globetrotters
Earlier this week, our school had a visit from Zeus McClurkin of the Harlem Globetrotters:
Our students will soon be taking MCAS examinations in English. The examination is being administered with a computer-based test, and we have procured keyboards compatible with iPads for the purpose of the testing. Students will need to ensure that iPads are (a) functional and (b) charged in advance of the test dates. We will be forwarding the full schedule home next week.
