Good Evening Tiger Nation, this is Chase Arrington, principal at Western Guilford Middle School with announcements for the week of Sunday, May 22nd – Friday, May 26th.

Thank you to everyone who made the 8th Grade Formal a success! To the parent volunteers, we could not have done it without you! The students looked amazing and they had fun.

We have started our device collection in preparation for EOGs. Students will have access to tablets in the building. Tablets will no longer go home with students.

8th Grade will attend a trip to the North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro, NC Friday, May 26th. Permission forms went out Wednesday, May 17th. The cost of the trip is $9 to assist covering cost for chartered buses. Students can bring their own lunch, purchase food on site at the zoo, or eat a bag lunch that will be provided by our cafeteria staff. Please reach out to Mr. Kee or Ms. King if you have questions.

We will have our May Leadership/Lighthouse Meeting Tuesday, May 23rd at 3:50pm in the media center. Please reach out to your parent representative if you have questions, concerns, or suggestions.

This week is a busy week for our music programs as they enter their final concert season:

  • Tuesday, May 23rd we will have our chorus concern for grades 6-8 at 6pm.
  • Wednesday, May 24th 6th and 7th grade orchestra and Band will host their concert at 6pm.
  • Thursday, May 25th, 8th Grade Orchestra and Band will host their concert at 6pm.
  • All concerns will take place in the multi-purpose room/cafeteria. Come out and support your Tiger Music Programs.

During the concert, we will have devices set up for you to submit end of year feedback through a survey. This will give guidance of parent perspective as we begin planning for the 2023-24 school year. Please take a moment to complete this at the concerts.

I will send an end of year survey to collect information from parents about your experience in Tiger Nation. This survey is anonymous, and we would like your feedback.
