​School of Education Weekly Newsletter

Reminder - Education majors are required to read this weekly newsletter!

Week of May 15, 2023

Finals week – You can do it!  One more week and you can take a breath and hopefully take a bit of a break, or at least schedule some fun!  

Congratulations to those of  you graduating this semester.  We are so very happy for you.

Here are some things you should be taking care of:
  • ​If you are student teaching next spring, you MUST sign up for the mandatory September student teaching application meeting  no later than today.  Read the directions you received from Field.Experiences.Office@uwsp.edu from May 1.  I believe you have received this request twice from their office and once from me.
  • Make sure you are registered for fall.
  • All students are required to watch their UWSP email through the summer.
  • Review your Education advising guide​ to make sure you are staying on track.
  • Check your final grades in accesspoint.  Not all scores for courses are posted in Canvas, so you must check your actual grades through accesspoint.  Final grades should be posted by 2:00pm Thursday, May 25th, except for student teaching.
  • It is all right to ask for help if you need it.
​Have a great week everyone!
