We hope your first two weeks of the semester have been excellent! It’s a joy to work with your students and to hear about the Transformational Learning Experiences they are having both in and out of the classroom.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Action Items

Book ordering reminder: We’ve noticed that some students have not yet purchased the books they need for some of their classes. Please make sure you complete this step and everything else on the Pre-Start Checklist so your student doesn’t fall behind.

Yearbook Photos: We are now accepting student profile photos for our 2020-21 yearbook! Profile photos must be of the student alone and be from the shoulders up. Students can also submit group photos from student activities! Click here to submit your photos.



Honor Roll: Congratulations to our students who made the Honor Roll for last semester! You can view the full list in Homeroom.

Parent-Mentor Conferences: Mark your calendars! Parent Mentor Conferences and Parent Mentor Updates will be held from February 1-5. More information on these will be coming in the next few weeks.

New Student Mentoring Program: Our Student Body Leadership team has created a new initiative called the Student Mentoring Program. Burgers of more than one year can sign up to be a Student Mentor. This includes helping new students learn their way around our online systems, find their way to student activities, and succeed on their assignments (plus also just being their friend). You can click here to request a Student Mentor for your student, or here if your student would like to become a Mentor.

UVU Stronger Families Project: You are invited to participate in a free eight-week family life education course that will build on your family’s strengths and values. The spring session begins the week of February 8, 2021. Click here for more information and registration options.

Williamsburg Learning swag is on sale: From January 16-18, everything on TeePublic is up to 35% off— that makes classic tees only $13! Check out our school swag store if your student wants to show off their school pride.
