 "Info YOU Need To Know"  

 

General Information
Parent Teacher Conferences ...
Unless something changes, Parent Teacher Conferences will be held on Tuesday 02/16 beginning at 1 PM and ending at 7 PM.  Due to school having been closed Tuesday--Thursday, appointment sheets were not been able to be sent home.  Therefore, we want to encourage everyone ... both students and parents ... to attend.  No appointment will be necessary.
 
WHS Parent Meeting ...
The WHS Parent Meeting for 8th grade students has been rescheduled for 02/23 at 6 PM at the WHS Auditorium.
 
 TN Ready State Assessments (Update) ...
Due to the announcement made by the State, we are waiting to see what the new plan for testing will involve.  As soon as more information is learned, it will be shared with everyone.  
Whenever the test is admnistered, we still need everyone to be in attendance as well as focused and motivated.  Also, as a reminder, we encourage all students to do the following:
--Eat breakfast ... at home or at school ... because breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
--Eat lunch because everybody needs "fuel" to keep going throughout the day.
--Drink water because water acts a s brain fuel and energizer.
--Get 8 hours or more of sleep each night so the brain and body are rested.
