Congratulations to all my students we had 100% pass rate on the Sol exam and we had 20 students earn a perfect score-600!  I am very pround of all my students – have a wonderful summer- Mrs. Toland

We will be having a World History Celebration on June 2 (odd day) and June 3 (even).  Students have signed up for what they would like to contribute- with servings for 30 people.  Remember to bring your own drink to class on your class day.  It is very important that if your snack requires cutting that you cut it up at home- please remember the school policy – no knives at school not even plastic knives will be tolerated.  Any student who brings a knife will be sent to the office to see an administrator with a referral. Mrs. Toland will provide all serving utensils.  If there are any questions please email me or stop by my room.

Dear Parents and Students- to be best prepared for the SOL exam in May students should be studying their notes 20 minutes every night.  Many students are weak on SOL.  8, 9, 10, 12, 13- if you have been struggling with sections of the homework packet then this is where you need to go back and study those parts in your study guide.  You must pass this SOL to meet graduation requirements.
