As the school year comes to an end many current Juniors, Sophomores, and Freshmen are picking classes for the next school, and at Wethersfield High School the time has come for students to start selecting classes for the 2018-2019 school year. Here is a how-to on how to register for the class for next year.
First, log in to your school’s PowerSchool account and select class registration. Next click edit to choose the electives you would like to take next year and click done once you have picked your desired classes. You will be asked to choose first and second choice electives in this step.
For those who do not know, first electives are your first choice elective that you would like your guidance counselor to place you in. Second electives are essentially backup class in case you do not get into your first choice electives due to the class being filled up or not fitting you schedule for next year.
Once you are done selecting all your electives for next year click the submit button on the bottom of the screen and you will be shown an outline of all the classes you pick, as well as the classes your teachers have recommended you for.
If you do not agree with the recommendations your teachers have made for you can ask the guidance office to give you a waveform, so you can override the teacher’s decision. Or if you have made a mistake during the course selection process your guidance counselor will be glad to fix any mistakes you have made, just make sure to make these changes before the end of the school year because classes fill up fast so do not delay this process.
When selecting courses for next year be sure to look out for the new English electives that WHS is offering next year. WHS is adding Film in Literature and Mythological Studies to next years English department but is sadly removing Drama, Writers Workshop, and Senior English.
Remember it is never too late to change your schedule and always try to challenge yourself when picking classes next year, but do not try to overwhelm yourselves especially for the up and coming seniors, senior year should be fun not stressful. Also course registration ends Thursday at midnight, so do not wait.
