We are turning into the homestretch with 10 weeks of school left. This is the last week of the third quarter and the last opportunity for students to pull up grades before the grading period ends.  We are having SOL makeup tests this week  for 8th graders who missed the Writing multiple choice or short answer part. We  are starting with a A day on Monday March 26th, 2018 and this is the last week of school before Spring Break. My next newsletter will come out on April 16th.
