  • Attention all students!! Next week marks the beginning of SOL season here at WMS — and we need to start getting ready. Students will be taking the SOLs on their iPads this year. But in order for it to work, your iPad must be updated, undamaged, and FULLY CHARGED each day. Starting NOW — please make sure you’re plugging-in your iPad every night, and let your TA teacher know IMMEDIATELY if your iPad is cracked or malfunctioning.
    .
    Also, it’s very important that EVERY STUDENT runs a “TestNav System Check” this week, to make sure the testing software is installed and functioning prior to the test.  For a quick tutorial on how to run the Systems Check, just go to the “Technology” section of the WMS Website, click “iPad Tech Tutorials”, then select “TestNav SOL System Check for Students.”  You can also follow the link located in today’s Morning Announcements Blog.  See Ms. Cameron or Ms. Solomon with any additional technology issues or questions about the upcoming SOLs.
