2017-2018 Is Coming to a Close

It is hard to believe our school year is coming to an end.  2017-2018 academic year will soon be in the past.  Parents, we hope you will work with us to help your student do their best!

Students, how will YOU finish?  Will you make that extra effort to review for your SOL tests? Will you stay focused in class and keep your grades up? Are you ready to finish this school year with your best possible effort? 

We are working hard to prepare for semester and end-of-year SOL tests in Math, English, Science and Civics. We have upcoming events in Drama, Band, SCA, FCA, FCCLA, and the other teams and clubs.  The 8th Grade Dance, 8th Grade DC Field Trip, 8th Grade Picnic and Grades 6, 7 and 8 Awards Assemblies are only a few weeks away!

Parents, continue to stay involved in your student’s education.  Check their grades on PowerSchool, look in their binder, check their agenda, and review their homework.  Your involvement really makes the difference in your child’s success!  Let’s finish strong and have a great summer!
