Parents, please work with your children and their teachers when interim grades are shared next week. Our learning environment is more effective when parents and teachers communicate and coordinate about assignments and assessments. Our staff is here to assist. Working together we can better ensure a positive and productive academic year for your child. Please email or call teachers with your questions or concerns.
Stay safe and healthy!

SCHOOL HOURS FOR FIRST SEMESTER
The 5-10-minute change to school hours will remain in place for the first semester. Warhill: 7:15 a.m. – 2:15 p.m.
Please do not pass on the wrong side of the road. WJCC police department will start issuing citations.
On October 13th, WJCC Schools will administer the Pre-Scholastic Aptitude Test/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) to all high school juniors and freshmen. Additionally, sophomores who have registered to sit for the exam will test on this date. If your student is a junior or a freshman, they do NOT need to register as they are already assigned. Please note that registration for sophomores is now closed.
For our juniors, the PSAT serves as the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (NMSQT). Students who score high enough can earn National Merit Finalist, Semifinalist, and Commended status. These designations are some of the highest national academic achievements a student can earn. Juniors who attend New Horizons Career and Technical Center or Governor’s School are excused from attendance for those programs and should report to the Warhill student center at 7:15 am.
For our freshmen, the PSAT-8/9 gives students and families diagnostic information regarding academic strengths and challenges. The PSAT 8/9 tests the same skills and knowledge as the SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, and PSAT 10—in a way that makes sense for eighth and ninth graders. It measures what they’re already learning, shows them whether they’re on track for college, and lets them know where they need the most improvement. That means students have time to tackle these areas long before they take the SAT.
