Posted by Aislynn Denny on 3/26/2023

Good Evening Tiger Families, this is Chase Arrington Principal at Western Guilford Middle School bringing you announcements for the week of Monday, March 27th – Friday, March 31st.

6th grade teams will attend trips to the 4-H Camp Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday. Each team will go one day. Please review the information sent home by your child’s teachers to determine when they will attend the trip. Students will not be able to take cell phones on the trip as this is an instructional field trip with assignments throughout the day for students to complete. We will send a Remind Message alerting you students are returning to school. We will give you a 30-45-minute advance notice.


Monday, March 27th, we will host a softball/baseball game against Swann Middle School starting at 4:45pm.

Thursday, March 30th, we will host a Softball/Baseball game against Northern starting at 4:45pm.

Tuesday, March 28th, students will take their Spring NWEA Math Assessment. Recall in the beginning of the year, we set a schoolwide goal that students would increase their individual scores by 5 points from the fall to spring assessment. Our schoolwide goal is to decrease the number of students in the lowest quintile by 5-percentage points. How students perform on this assessment Tuesday, will determine possible outcomes on the Math EOG. Additionally, this is information we will use to determine students invited to Summer Learning.

Also, on Tuesday, March 28th, we will have our monthly Leadership/Lighthouse Meeting in the media center at from 3:50pm – 5:50pm. If you have concerns, questions, or thoughts, please share with your parent representative.

The end of the 3rd Quarter is Thursday, March 30th. Students need to submit all missing assignments by this date. Grades are due to administration by Friday, March 31st at 4pm. Students will not have an opportunity to turn in work beyond March 30th. Please reach out to your child’s teachers if you have questions.

Friday, March 31st, school is closed for students. This is a teacher workday for WGMS.
