Samuel will attend NC State in the fall and will receive $500 from the PTSA to use towards school expenses. Congratulations Samuel!

End of Year Testing

Please review the Testing Plan Overview. This document is an overview and it shows you which EOG’s/EOC’s will be testing this year. All EOG/EOC State Testing will take place in-person this school year (regardless if you are enrolled as a Virtual Academy student or Plan A student). 

 

PTSA Updates

The PTSA raised over $5000 this past fall due to the very generous donations of our families. We are spending a portion of that money on painting the interior of the school. Thanks to all the hard work of PTSA volunteers, Michelle Zeren and Jackie Boggs, along with school administration we have selected a painting company, submitted the required paperwork to the county, and will hopefully get the painting underway soon. We are super excited to see our school's fresh new look.

 

Phoenix Fitness Fun 2021 Event

The PTSA sponsored Phoenix Fitness Fun kicks off Monday April 19th. Your young men will have the chance for some fun, physical competition. Please visit our spirit store at TO REGISTER. We are asking families to donate $25 to participate in this virtual fitness challenge and students will receive a T-shirt.  The event will occur from April 19th-30th. We will have a Facebook live event on May 7th to celebrate the winners in each grade level. Gentlemen will use this Google form to record mileage/ push-ups.

 

Families, just a reminder that we partnered with Graphic Evolution this year to update our spiritwear offerings and give families the flexibility to purchase new items any time throughout the year. You can check out WYMLA gear at wymlastore.com
