PESHTIGO—This year, Peshtigo students will be able to register online for their classes. Guidance counselor Angie Matykowski states, “COVID gave us a little push to get scheduling set-up online. We believe this helps students take more ownership and control of their future. We’re hoping that the online format sparks more discussion between students and parents at home, too.”In the past, Peshtigo students would look over the course catalog, and then select their courses with guidance, and support staff would enter the information. This is the time of year where students and school officials start thinking about the schedule, but the process is looking different. Guidance counselors continue to meet with students in small groups and individually to discuss and develop future course plans. Students are responsible for inputting their own course selections.
Newberry reminds everyone of Peshtigo’s Nursing Assistant and Introduction to Education programs as options in high school. Also, Peshtigo has five AP (Advanced Placement) classes as well as seventeen dual enrollment classes students may use to apply to post secondary college programs like NWTC and UW-Green Bay.
