    Welcome back to Karess McNeil, our Special Education Transition Coordinator, from maternity leave.  We are glad to have you back!

    Wise HS hosted the first of many teacher job fairs this past Saturday.  Our students did a great job hosting the fair by supporting the Human Resources department.  Thank you Colonel Bruce Arrington, Dr. Portia Barnes, Pamela Davis, Tanya Adkisson, and Cathleen Rozanski for coordinating support for the job fair.  Also, thank you Dr. William Blake, Brian Makell, and Shelia Robertson for interviewing candidates on behalf of the school.  Great work!

    Our music department took more than fifty students on a trip to Atlanta to perform and visit sites around the city.  Great job Alphonso Jiles, Valencia Howard, Shante Henry, Doris Cabiness, and Deborah Royer on executing this trip.  These types of experiences are very important because they expand our students’ worldview!

    Our Class of 2016 parent night was very informative for our juniors and their families.  Great job Shavon Wright, Tania Chandler, Melody Thompson, and Tyrone Hicks!
