During the week of 4/1 - 4/5, the Student Services team will be teaching the "Human Trafficking Education" one-day lesson to 7th and 8th graders during their Healthful Living class.  Students have received a letter about the lesson and parents/ guardians have the option of opting them out of that lesson.  Contact the school counseling department with any questions about the material.



4.  In case you haven't seen it, I'm including the WCPSS Board of Education's Resolution for Safe Gun Storage.



5.  Here's a reminder of an opportunity for any families with Middle School GIRLS:


Here is an upcoming middle school female empowerment conference, “She’s THAT Girl”, which will take place on May 18, 2024, at William Peace University. 

‘She’s THAT Girl’ is designed to create a space for 100-120 middle school girls to be empowered through interactive breakout sessions that provide dialogue around topics that middle school aged girls typically struggle with, including mental and emotional health, self-confidence, friendships, relationships, peer pressure, identity, etc. The goal of this conference is to facilitate an environment that encourages these girls to connect, learn, reflect, grow, and be empowered in their journey while reminding them that they are indeed THAT Girl!


Here's the flyer with details.



6.  Don't forget!  April 20 will be our mini-Science Olympiad.  Here are the important links:
