Dear Junior High Parents,
Thank you to everyone who volunteered at the Neon Dance and/or donated items for snacks at the dance. It was a huge success that was enjoyable for all West Deanery students. Next Wednesday, we enter into the season of Lent with Ash Wednesday. We would love to have you join us for Ash Wednesday mass. During Lent, we are preparing our hearts and minds for death and Resurrection of our Savior. Students will have the opportunity, during school, to attend a penance service before we celebrate Easter.
Next week, your student will be completing a practice ISTEP+ test for math, language arts, and social studies. We give the practice test so students can ensure they understand the directions and what is expected for the different types of questions asked. During the last week of February and first week of March, we will take the first part of ISTEP+. Please make sure you do not schedule appointments in the mornings on these days, and your student is getting enough sleep and eating breakfast before coming to school.
Ms. Laura Hokl
