The "Welcome Back 7th Grade Dance" will be this Friday, August 21st, right after school. Students should get a permission slip from their homeroom teachers. Bring your permission slip and $2.00 to be allowed into the dance. Don't forget to bring extra money for the concession stand!
Volleyball try outs for 7th and 8th grade boys and girls will be held on Monday, August 24th from 2:40 to 4:30. Students will need a signed permission slip and a current physical on file in order to try out. Hope to see you there!
Vithar students are finishing up their Language Arts PARCC tests today! On Monday and Tuesday next week they will be taking the Math tests. Students will not need a calculator for these tests because one will be provided for them. Students please continue to bring a reading book or magazines to school for Monday and Tuesday. Students have been doing an amazing job adjusting to the schedule these past few days and we are proud of their good behavior in the hallways while testing has been going on. Keep up the good work for two more days!!! On a side note, we have recently started a typing competition among the seventh grade vithar students. Each week our five fastest typers are recognized on our team bulletin board. Last week our fastest typer was Mattie Hyde with 46.97 word per minute. This week our fastest typer was Fiona Aniceto with 72.55 words per minute! Wow! Great job girls! Who will be our fastest typer next week?! Keep practicing at home and let your teachers know if you beat your previous speed. Have a great weekend everyone! One more week until Spring Break!!!!
This week the eighth graders and elementary students have begun taking the PARCC test.
Seventh grade students will begin taking the test on March 18th! The testing will go as follows:
March 18th - 20th : Language Arts Test
March 23rd - 24th : Mathematics Test
If students finish their test early they will not be allowed to talk or leave the room (unless it is an emergency). Students are strongly encouraged to bring an independent reading book and/or school-appropriate magazines to school on these days.
A more informative letter will be going home with the students on March 10th.
