WEEK OF MARCH 17, 2019

A Message from the Principal

Warhill Families,

This week 10th grade English classes will participate in SOL tests.   A few things that help students do well on SOL tests include:

  1.  Get enough sleep the night before. Your mind and body need rest after a busy day.
  2.  Remember to wear comfortable clothing.
  3.  Eating a well-balanced breakfast is a great way to prepare for SOL tests.  Food is what fuels your body and mind.
    1. The Warhill Cafeteria offers healthy breakfast selections daily.

As a reminder, due to SOL tests this week, there will be no AEP block, and classes will begin at 7:20 am for all students.
