 News and Notes
Congratulations to WHHS rising senior John Delgado, who was selected for the New Haven Register All-Area Boys Tennis Team.

Former West Haven special education students born in 1988 may pick up their school records this summer. Files will then be shredded, as the district keeps special education files until the students are 27 years old. Call Pupil Services at 203-937-4333 to schedule a time to pick up a file.

New student registration sessions begin next week on Tuesday, July 7, and Thursday, July 9. They are from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. at Molloy School, 255 Meloy Road. There are additional sessions in August and early September.

Students and their families are encouraged to visit the public library this summer so youngsters
can continue reading over summer break. All three library branches have activities, including free ice cream day, book clubs, teen crafts, magicians, Book Buddies and therapy dogs, and other activities that coordinate with the summer reading program coordinated by West Haven Public Schools and the library.

  WHHS programs offer college credit

WHHS students are graduating with more college credits than ever before, thanks to the school’s number of advanced placement class offerings, partnerships with local colleges, and special programs. The cost to earn the credits is generally free, except for test fees where applicable, and can benefit students academically and financially.

Currently, WHHS students can earn college credits by taking advanced placement (college-level) classes at WHHS; STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) courses at WHHS associated with the Project Lead the Way national engineering program; University of New Haven courses if selected for the Charging Ahead or Outstanding High School Student Program (participants pictured above) initiatives on the UNH campus; and Gateway Community College courses on the Gateway campus through the Gateway High School Partnership. Students have also been able to earn credits at Gateway through the College Career Pathways program; it is being replaced by a new one this fall that will allow automotive students to take a course at Gateway and will later expand to other subject areas.

The WHHS School Counseling Department assists in coordinating the programs and students’ involvement and eligibility. For more information on any of the WHHS programs that allow students to earn college credit, parents and students can contact the School Counseling office or click here.
