    We are off to a great start thanks to the dedication of the full faculty and staff! We had numerous visitors throughout our opening week, and they shared how impressed they were with the positive climate in the building.

    Thank you Dr. Regina Young, Tracy Newman, Wrenetta Green, Dr. Portia Barnes, Deanna Dodge and Frances Campbell, Dr. Ware, Mrs. Findley, and Ms. McCullough for spearheading our use of TipWEB to distribute our textbooks this year. This is a sizeable task and each of you has tackled it with both hands!

    Jason Gordon hosted a very informative meeting for the parents of athletes last week. Way to go!

    Shavon Wright and Tyrone Hicks guided a senior class parent steering committee meeting last week to chart the course for a great school year. Great job!

    Welcome back assistant principal, Deborah Royer, and Investigative Counselor, Ronald Fryer, to the Wise team! You were missed in your absence, and we are glad to have you back!
