Class of 2017- Registration Presentation. Calculating Your Semester G.P.A. TWHS calculates your G.P.A. on a 4.0 scale : TWHS does not use “+” and “-” when calculating your grades. In other words, an A- is actually calculated as an A. B+ is actually calculated as a B, etc.
There are two standards you must meet to be eligible for athletics and/or activities (Marching Band, Bowling Club, Color Guard, etc.). The two standards are:
You all have a half sheet of paper with you to begin building your 2014-2015 schedule. You will see 8 open periods, not including lunch. As I work through the presentation, fill in the class you choose next to the content or elective options.
Remember…..You must have 6 classes on your schedule. You can have 7 or 8 if you choose, though you must have 6! If you choose to have 6 classes, then your 7th & 8th would be an extra study hall(s).
Colleges strongly recommend 2 years of a Foreign Language. TWHS offers Spanish, Latin and French. If you have never taken a foreign language class, please register for French 1 AB, Spanish 1 AB or Latin 1.
