  • W-H-N Prom 2016 Publicity Release
    The Wheaton-Herman-Norcross Juniors would like to invite the public to their 14th annual W-H-N Junior-Senior “Deep Blue Destiny” Prom Grand March set for Saturday, May 7th, at 8pm at the Wheaton Area High School gym. Students will begin their evening with a social at 6pm and a catered banquet at the Wheaton American Legion at 6:30pm. The Grand March will then follow at 8pm and the public is once again asked to please enter through the east doors (by the gym). The Grand March admission fee is $1 for both adults and students. Activity tickets will not be honored. During the Grand March we ask that the audience remain seated until the completion of the Grand March has been announced. Immediately following the Grand March, the W-H-N students will begin dancing the night away. Please note that parents will be notified if students leave before the end of the dance even if they are not attending Post Prom. Front doors will be open following the dance at 12:00am for those W-H-N juniors and seniors who wish to attend Post Prom only. All prom questions can be directed to Brett Frafford-Olson (563-8282 ext. 155) in Wheaton or Jayne Oachs in Herman.   Our W-H-N Post Prom is once again hosted by the Junior classes' parents. Parents need to complete a parent permission form in order for their student to attend Post Prom. The Post Prom events will start at 12:30 am following the dance beginning with hypnotist Dan Lee. Entertainment immediately following will be a variety of games and activities. Snacks and hanging out with friends are all part of the late night/early morning festivities. Post Prom will culminate with a prize giveaway and will end around 3:30am. It is the focus of Post Prom parents to provide a fun night of entertainment in a safe, chemical-free environment for juniors, seniors, and their dates, so parents will be contacted if students leave before the end of Post Prom. Thanks to the generosity of local contributions, these activities...

In an effort to provide clear and helpful guidance, below is some language that can be used on district websites to satisfy the obligation to notify parents and students about PSEO. Please note that by March 1 of each year, a district must provide up-to-date information on the district's website and in materials that are distributed to all pupils and their parents in grades eight through grade 11 about the program, including information about enrollment requirements and the ability to earn postsecondary credit. To assist the district in planning, a pupil shall inform the district by May 30 of each year of their intent to enroll in postsecondary courses during the following school year. A pupil is bound by notifying or not notifying the district by May 30.

Postsecondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) is a program that allows 10th-, 11th- and 12th-grade students to earn both high school and college credit while still in high school, through enrollment in and successful completion of college-level, nonsectarian courses at eligible participating postsecondary institutions. Most PSEO courses are offered on the campus of the postsecondary institution; some courses are offered online. Each participating college or university sets its own requirements for enrollment into the PSEO courses. Eleventh and 12th-grade students may take PSEO courses on a full- or part-time basis; 10th graders may take one career/technical PSEO course. If they earn at least a grade C in that class, they may take additional PSEO courses.

There is no charge to PSEO students for tuition, books or fees for items that are required to participate in a course. Students must meet the PSEO residency and eligibility requirements and abide by participation limits specified in Minnesota Statutes, section 124D.09. If a school district determines a pupil is not on track to graduate, she/he may continue to participate in PSEO. Funds are available to help pay transportation expenses for qualifying students to participate in PSEO courses on college campuses. Schools must provide information to all students in grades 8-11 and their families by March 1, every year. Students must notify their school by May 30 if they want to participate in PSEO for the following school year. For current information about the PSEO program, visit the Minnesota Department of Education’s Postsecondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) webpage.
