The following dates are left for tutoring this year. As we come to the end of the school year, with the reminder that there is no summer school this year, take advantage of our after school tutoring. Be sure to have your student get a permission slip signed and returned to the main office. This allows them to stay after school. Then when your student decides which tutoring session they need, they should sign up in the lobby for that session each week.
|Tuesdays (English, SS, Curriculum Support)
||Thursdays (Math, Science, Drop-in)
|May: 1, 8, 15, 22, 29
||May: 3, 10, 17, 24, 31
You may print the permission slip and have students return it or get one from the front lobby if you aren’t able to print.
2017-2018 WTC Tutoring Letter
Assessment season is upon us! Your child will be participating in Delaware’s accountability assessment, the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA), in both ELA and Math. In addition, 8th grade students will complete the new DeSSA Science Field Test and 7th graders will complete the DeSSA Social Studies Field Test. We will begin testing on Thursday, March 8 with 8th grade ELA. The SBA includes an audio component, and so earbuds are required. We recommend your child brings his/her own earbuds to school; however, we will also have some for student use. Please keep in mind that the newer iPhone earbuds (with the lightening adapter) will not work with our computers, and neither will Bluetooth earbuds/headphones. Only standard/traditional headphones are compatible with District computers.
Below is a table that explains when WTC students will be testing. Please review this table, and ensure that your child is prepared for his/her testing by getting a good night’s sleep and eating a healthy
breakfast prior to testing. As always, our cafeteria is open for free breakfast at 7:50AM every morning.
Thank you for your continued support!
