Announcements

Attention Parents

For 2019 Graduate Candidates, the Kiwanis Club Scholarship Application is due in the Guidance Office by Friday, February 15th.  Since we will not be in school that day, they will be due in the Guidance Office by 8:35 a.m. on Tuesday, February 19th.

For all students, the 2019 Hendricks County College Fair is coming up.  It will be held Thursday, February 21, 2019 at the Hendricks County Fairgrounds.  Workshops will be held from 5-7 p.m.and the fair will be held from 6:30-8:00 p.m.  For more information and early registration go to: https://hendrickscollegenetwork.org/college-career-fair/.

The Master Schedule for 2019-2020 is nearly complete.  We should be able to generate the initial schedules later this week.  It will take some time for us to work through the scheduling conflicts that always arise.  It is still our goal to have the student's initial schedule in their hands by March 1st.  Students will be allowed to drop a class and replace it with another class up through April 12th.  Any changes after April 12th will require Principal approval.  The goal is to have all schedules finalized by the last day of school.  The schedule the student leaves school with in May will be the schedule the student will start school with in August.

For Juniors the time is now to start registering for the SAT and ACT exams.  Go to the TWHS Guidance page, click on the College Prep link and then scroll down to the SAT and ACT links.  These links will take you to the websites to register for the exams.  The next SAT Exam will be on May 4th and you have to be registered by April 5th.  The next ACT Exam will be April 13th and you have to be registered by March 8th.  TWHS is not a testing site unless you have applied for and qualified for Special Needs Testing Accommodations.

Attention all students and parents: ISTEP+ Retest Exams

Beginning with the Class of 2019, all students must take and pass the English/Language Arts ISTEP and the Mathematics ISTEP Exams.  These two exams became the new Graduation Qualifying Exam.  For students who have not passed these exams yet, the retest is scheduled for December 3-7, 2018.  In addition, all students who have not passed the ISTEP+ Exams will be taking the ASVAB Exam on Wednesday, October 24, 2018.  A passing score of 31 on this exam along with a Core40 Diploma and either a Service-Based Learning Experionce or a Work-Based Learning Experience can be used to substitute for a passing ISTEP+ Score.
