It is hard to believe we are ending another school year!
The end of our school year is quickly approaching! While the 2018-2019 academic year will soon be in the past, it is not too late to make your best efforts.  Parents, we hope you will partner with us in helping your student do their best to finish well!
Students; what will YOU do to finish well?  Will you make that extra effort to review for your SOL tests? Will you make sure your Chromebook is charged? Will you stay focused in class and keep your grades up? Will you ignore distractions? Are you ready to finish this school year with your best possible effort? 
I know that it is challenging to find the determination to conquer this school year especially in May and June.  I believe you can do it and I believe you have what it takes to succeed!
 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 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, make sure to ask if their Chromebook is charged, and review their homework...Be part of their support system!  Your involvement really makes the difference in your child’s success!  Let’s finish strong and have a great summer!
