    The senior prom was magical!  The students were dressed in their best and had a wonderful time.   The venue was beautiful, and the atmosphere festive!  Congratulations to the senior team who worked tirelessly to make this a night the students will never forget.  Great job Courtney McCullough, Bridgette Gillis-Cruise, Khaisha Charles, and Shatice Wright.  Thank you to the many other staff members who also provided assistance.  There are truly too many to name!

    The Wise HS baseball team won the regional championship by virtue of a 20-10 victory over Northwestern HS! 

    The game was electric and our students enjoyed great support from the large crowd, including staff, who came out to support!  #PUMAPRIDE!

    Great job Robin Rubain for scheduling a cohort of Wise students to take their Maryland Learners Permit exam at Wise on Saturday!  The parents were very appreciative to receive this service and avoid the long process at the Motor Vehicle Association.  Wonderful job.

    PARCC testing has concluded for the year!  Next up is H.S.A.!  Thank you Nicole McLaurin for working hard to manage the never-ending parade of assessments for students.  This is an extremely difficult task, and you manage it wonderfully!  Great work!

    Congratulations Charles Chi, tennis coach, for guiding students to the girls’ quarterfinals and the boys’ semifinals in the playoffs.  Wonderful job!

    Our guidance team:  Robin Rubain (chair), Pamela Poles, Consuella Gibson, Tania Chandler, Melody Thompson, and Angela Jackson did a great job organizing our end of year awards program!  Special thanks to Valencia Howard for leading a wonderful performance by the choir at the event.
