I hope you had a Happy Easter. SOL Testing is right around the corner is approaching in 2 weeks. We are asking any students who need help to stay after this week and for the next few weeks leading up to SOL Testing. This week starts with an A Day on Monday, April 22nd, 2019.
After School Help
Students who need additional help may stay after school with teachers to get more help. Buses are provided and leave at 5:00 PM. Tuesdays are for Math and Science, Wednesdays are for Related Arts, and Thursdays are for Social Studies and English. All students are encouraged to stay to get that more individualized instruction. We will be reaching out to you and your child if they need additional support. After school is a great time to get a concept that you didn’t get the first time around. Snacks and water will be provided to students who stay after school.
Sports- Baseball and Softball
Tuesday April 23 Away @ New Kent 4:30

Item Drop Off
Items that are brought to school will be sent down to your student during advisory period. We would like to limit the interruptions in the school day. If you bring something to your child, report to the main office and they will take care of getting it to them in a timely fashion.
