Mrs. Polen’s class from GWMS had Mrs. Doss come to talk about all of the facets of being a librarian in schools and public libraries. She did several fun activities with sorting books and learning about the Dewey Decimal system as well as fiction and nonfiction books. We enjoyed her presentation and we thank her for coming to our class.
Mrs. Polen’s class had the WV National Guard come to discuss all of the types of jobs they do in WV and around the country. Thank you to Mr. Ivestor and Rachel for their awesome presentation.

Our school is working with our wonderful bus drivers to help provide relief for the victims of the recent Tornado in Western Kentucky. If possible, please bring blankets and/or personal hygiene items such as soap, shampoo, toothpaste etc. This is a county wide campaign. Other schools are providing different types of materials. Students that bring items, will drop them off in their Advisory classes. Our drivers will collect the donations this Friday. Thank you for your support!
We are pleased to inform you that students who took the West Virginia General Summative Assessment or SAT School Day in spring 2021 will receive an email at their K12 student email account on December 10, 2021, containing a link to an individual student video score report. Parents with emails on file with the school will also receive the link to the video score report. Although students received their printed score reports earlier this school year, the West Virginia Department of Education is piloting exciting new video score reports designed to be more engaging for students and their parents or guardians. Please have your student check his or her email account for the link, and parents and guardians should also check to see if it has been received. Simply copy and paste the link into your web browser and enter the student's date of birth to access the video score report customized specifically for the student. Also, be sure to check out the links to resources in the video report. If you have any difficulty accessing the report, please contact the school for assistance.

Virtual Device Collection will be Tuesday June 1st from 9 A.M. to 2 P.M. Parents and/or Students need to bring Laptops, Chargers, Cases, and Hotspots to the front door. Students will also return any other school materials that had been provided during the year. Parents and Virtual Students will be met by school personnel outside and all items will be dropped off at the table in the front entry. Masks are to be worn by all parties and sanitation supplies will be on hand. Before collecting laptops from students, teachers will do an audit of each device to make sure it is working properly and not in need of repair. Students will be asked to power on their device. The device will be examined for physical damage. A $25.00 fee will be assigned for any missing power cords. Checks are made payable to PCS. This should be a very quick process. We look forward to seeing you soon!
