Good Evening Tiger Nation Families, this is Principal Chase Arrington at Western Guilford Middle School bringing you announcements for the week of Monday, March 6th – Friday, March 10th.
Happy Women’s History Month to all the women in the Tiger Nation Community. We celebrate Women’s History Month from March 1 – March 31 of each year.
Women’s History Month is a dedicated month to reflect on the often-overlooked contributions of women to United States history. From Abigail Adams to Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth to Rosa Parks, the timeline of women’s history milestones stretches back to the founding of the United States.
The actual celebration of Women’s History Month grew out of a weeklong celebration of women’s contributions to culture, history and society organized by the school district of Sonoma, California, in 1978. Presentations were given at dozens of schools, hundreds of students participated in a “Real Woman” essay contest and a parade was held in downtown Santa Rosa.
A few years later, the idea caught on within communities, school districts and organizations across the country. In 1980, President Jimmy Carter issued the first presidential proclamation declaring the week of March 8 as National Women’s History Week. The U.S. Congress followed suit the next year, passing a resolution establishing a national celebration. Six years later, the National Women’s History Project successfully petitioned Congress to expand the event to the entire month of March.
Tryouts for Spring Sports will begin Monday, March 6th immediately following dismissal. Please pick up students no later than 5:30pm if they stay for spring sports tryouts.
Thursday, March 9th, students currently enrolled in Math 1 will take their 3rd quarter Math 1 Interim Assessment. Please have students at 8:20am so we may begin testing at 8:45am. All other students will follow their regular schedule.
Friday, March 10th, 7th graders are going on a trip to see the Greensboro Symphony. Field Trip permission forms went home last week. Please have students return permission forms no later than Wednesday, March 8th. There is no fee attached to this field trip.
