  • PUMA Word of the Day

    ~ the act of delaying or postponing

    Kelle was frustrated by the deferment of her much-anticipated vacation.


    Laverne Coleman came in on her day off last week to make sure our classrooms were covered for a smooth start to our school day. Your dedication to the school team is appreciated!

    Thank you Robin Rubain (chair), Tania Chandler, Melody Thompson, Angela Jackson, Pamela Poles, Consuella Gibson, and Levina Newman for working extremely hard last week to accommodate hundreds of late registrations, schedule change requests, withdrawals, etc. Your patience, professionalism, and ability to work under pressure is appreciated. Thank you Dr. Carlo Parapara and Laverne Coleman for assisting guidance throughout this busy opening as well.

    Great job Natoya Coleman, Brian Makell, and Dr. Cathleen Rozanski for developing a smooth running Transition Day for our 9th grade students. Several parents and students shared how much they appreciated the high level of organization to the opening of school. The visit from the CEO, Dr. Maxwell, was also a big success. Great job!

    Jason Gordon hosted a very successful fall athletic meeting for parents and student athletes. Thanks to your efforts and the work of the coaches, Wise HS has a very powerful brand that families badly want to be a part of. Puma Pride!

    Congratulations to all staff members for working together to make our opening a successful one! Wonderful job!
