Posted by Aislynn Denny on 6/10/2024

Good Evening, Tiger Families! This is Principal Chase Arrington bringing you announcements for the week of Monday, June 10th – Friday, June 14th.

Thank you for a great year in Tiger Nation! To our former 8th graders and now rising 9th graders, we wish you well on your next journey in high school. We look forward to seeing you walk the stage again in 4 years as high school graduates!

To our rising 7th and 8th grade students, we hope you have a restful summer, and we look forward to your return in August.

Enrichment/Retest:

Monday, June 10th students who fit the criteria of scoring within 10 points of passing an EOG, passed the same course, and were projected to pass the EOG received invitations to return to WGMS Monday and Tuesday for retesting.

Monday, June 10th is enrichment for students to review topics on the EOG.

Tuesday, June 11th is the retest day. Students taking the Math, Reading, or Science EOG cannot get picked up before 12:30pm on Tuesday as it is a 3-hour test. Students retaking the Math 1 EOC cannot get picked up until after 1:30pm as they have 4 hours to complete the test.

Once the testing session is complete, we will allow students to call home

Please remember the expectations of no cell phone devices during the testing session. Due to students not having lockers, ALL students will be required to turn off cell phones and place them in a secure bin with the teacher they are testing with Tuesday. Students can receive their phones after the testing session is complete and call home.

Those invited to return will arrive at normal times by bus or car. Transportation is running their regular routes to pick up students. This is a normal schedule of 7:50am – 3:20pm.

Report Cards:

Report cards will be mailed home the week of Monday, June 17th. If you have moved and need to update your address, please do so through your School Mint account or contact the school and speak with our data manager, Ms. Hill. All returned mailed will result in you providing documentation for an updated address.

Thank you, Tiger Nation! I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable summer!
