Parents, tomorrow we begin the WVGSA. On the dates I previously put out I was very generous with the "window" we would need. This was to account for technical issues or anything else unforeseen that might extend testing longer than expected. If everything goes well, we will test math on Monday, ELA reading Tuesday, and ELA writing Wednesday. This will conclude testing for the 6th and 7th grade except for those that that were absent and will need to makeup a test session. 5th and 8th grade are required to also take a science component on the WVGSA, so we will take a pause on Thursday (8th grade is going to GHS for move-up day) and then conduct the science test on Friday. Testing will be conducted each morning this week according to the above schedule and, for most, will finish before lunch. However, it is an untimed test and some students may work into the afternoon. We will ensure they are provided lunch and with breaks if they are still testing. Please make sure that your student goes to bed at a decent hour tonight and each night this week. Please leave smart devices such as Apple Watches and AirPods at home as they will not be allowed in the testing rooms. Phones will have to be put into lockers or given to the teacher during testing. If your child must leave school, please try to wait until the afternoon as we are testing in the mornings. Go Knights!

Dear Students and Families, We need your help creating the slideshow for 8th Grade Graduation. We are asking for two photos of each student: one current photo and one younger one. If a current one isn't submitted, we can use the yearbook photo for this year. The photos may be submitted in person to Mrs. Workman or emailed to email@example.com. All hard copy photos will be scanned and returned to the student. Please submit the photos no later than May 23rd. Thank you for your cooperation.
7th grade parents, the trip to UTC for tomorrow is canceled due to unforeseen circumstances. If we are not able to make it up prior to the end year this group will still get a trip to UTC in the Fall of next year. This is an important educational experience and we will make sure this 7th grade group will have it.
