  • The SOLs continue today — as the 7th grade takes the Reading Exam.  Testing locations are listed on the call-boards by the library and cafeteria, or you can also check with your TA teacher.
    .
    Test-takers are reminded that you may ONLY bring the following items: a pencil or pen, a book to read, and earbuds ONLY if you have an approved audio accommodation for the test. You may NOT bring: backpacks or cinch sacks; any electronic devices; nor any water or snacks. And of course, there is zero tolerance for CHEATING.
    .
    And for all those students who are NOT testing today — please remember to be quiet and respectful in the halls. Teachers will be monitoring the hallways to ensure that there are no disruptions.  Also, the bell will not be ringing between classes, so be sure to keep your eye on the clock.
    .
    Any other questions or concerns? Check with your teachers or grade level counselor. Good luck on the SOL, 7th graders!
    .
  • Need something good to read?  The library may be closed during the SOLs, but students can still get books by clicking on the “Book Checkout Request” tab in the “Library” section of the WMS website.  The book will then be delivered to your TA as soon as it’s available.  Also, please be sure to return your books to the library carts located in the front lobby and by the cafeteria.  Reading rocks!
