Winter Can Affect How We Feel

This entry was posted in News on by .

Indiana winters can cause you to feel down and sleep more than usual. Don’t be too quick to accept this as a normal part of life. You may be suffering from seasonal affective disorder. At school, we also see this in some of our students.

        Not everyone is suffering from SAD, some are suffering from a less-severe form of mood changes called the “winter blues.” If you think you (or your child) may be experiencing SAD or winter blues, you may try the following things:

        *Expose yourself to sunlight whenever possible.

        *Incorporate more physical activity each day.

        *Socialize with friends, family and colleagues often.

You’re Invited!

Waldron HS Introduces Credit Academy

This entry was posted in News on by .

Waldron High School is piloting a new program this year called Credit Academy. Students who are part of the class are placed in one of our computer labs for 3.5 periods to work on the online program, Apex Online Learning.

The main purpose of this program is to meet the academic needs of our students who have fallen behind in credits. They are paired up with a licensed teacher each period as well as an instructional assistant who help guide them through the online courses and work on goal setting.

The Credit Academy is meant to provide flexibility for students to get the education they need for graduation as well as create opportunities for students to experience, such as elective courses at the career center, to prepare them for life after Waldron High School.
