Next Tuesday is the ACT!
Juniors and Seniors need to be here on time (8:45).
Freshman and Sophomores will not come to school on Tuesday the 22nd.
Testing locations will be shared in homeroom this week. Seniors and Juniors that bring a note to their testing teacher will be able to leave after all testing is complete. All students must remain in their testing/holding locations until all testing is complete and supplies are collected. Those students who are unable to leave after testing, will report to their homeroom. Students who remain at school will be expected to work on classwork.
Juniors will be taking a practice ACT that will be sent to Analyze-ED. Students will receive a score report in addition to online practice material aligned to three areas to improve their score. Juniors will have access to this material this year and next.
Calculators will be provided. It is recommend that students bring #2 pencil and a snack for the break.
The above is available for virtual students as well. If you don't feel comfortable coming to the building, you can receive a voucher to use on a national ACT test date. Remember; the ACT is required to graduate from high school.
We now have vouchers for any senior who wants to take the ACT.
Every senior should have the opportunity to take the ACT for free. Tuesday’s test will count as the first opportunity and this voucher will count as the second opportunity.
This voucher can only be used for two test dates:
October 10, 17,24, or 25, 2020 Deadline to Register: September 25th
December 12, 2020 Deadline to Register: November 6th
There will be tables set up in the Grand Hallway on September 22nd after the ACT is completed. Seniors can obtain a voucher then. If they are unable to get a voucher that day, please contact their guidance counselor and they will take care of the process.
Seniors and senior parents/guardians, you probably have lots of questions about senior year and the next step. Please review the Navigating Senior Year video by going to the counseling tab on the Wilson Central website.
Senior salutes for the yearbook are due October 16th. I am worried that in the hustle and bustle of the year, that seniors and senior parents have forgotten about senior ads/salutes. To place and ad, email Ms. Agee.

Our SRO's are currently working with the community to purchase life saving kits for Wilson Central. If you are interested in contributing you can do so in the front office or mail a donation specific to "bleed kits"
My name is Robert Locke with the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office. I am the SRO at Wilson Central High School. I am trying to raise money to purchase Stop the Bleed Kits for all the classrooms at Wilson Central. These kits are designed to save lives in the event of severe trauma like a gun shot, stabbing, or any accident with a loss of blood. This is something that I hope is never needed but can save the life of a child or a teacher in the event of a mass casualty incident when minutes matter. The average response time for EMS to an emergency scene is 7 minutes but it can take longer. These kits can be applied within minutes to stop the loss of blood, and stop the loss of young lives if we can get them in the building with people trained to use them. If you can help in any way it would be greatly appreciated.
This Saturday at the Lebanon Crye Leike our WCHS Cheerleaders will be having a carwash! Come out to support our team from 10am-2pm. $5 or donation🙂
Also, there is an apparel fundraiser going on! Link is below, we have WCHS Cheer masks, t-shirts, long sleeves, & hoodies. Items are shipped directly to you!
Congratulations to our students!

I just want you to know that in regards to students, this has been the smoothest start to school ever. This is a result of your students wanting to be here and everyone doing their part to make the best of the current situation. We are all still working to improve the technology and communication related to the hybrid schedule, student work and assignments. It will continue to improve, we just all need to be patient and keep working to make it better.
Another important item. The Presidential Election, Racial Tension and Social Injustice
I told the students in my Welcome Back Pep Rally video that the color of their skin, religious affiliation, ethnicity, sexual preference or any other label that can be applied does not matter to me. My focus is the education of each and every student at Wilson Central. I believe in treating everyone with respect; no if and or but. Therefore I also expect students to treat each other with respect and I'm proud to say that most people say; this is how we operate here at Wilson Central. This isn't to say we don't have problems, but we address them and try and work through them. We had two students exchange words based on action and their beliefs. Afterwards I had one of the young men say "after we talked, we are good. He didn't understand where I was coming from and I didn't understand where he was coming from."
The point is this; at school we are not going to let those issues get in the way of educating students. We do have district policies that address bullying, racial slurs and harassment in which I will enforce. I just prefer we all treat each other as we like to be treated and continue focus on education while at school. I hope all parents can support my view, it's not a political position but a student focused position.
We had a positive covid case in the school. I sent emails to parents whose student was "in contact" meaning the same class. For students that were in "close contact" closer than 6 feet for 10 minutes or more; those parents got a phone call before the email went out. Just know I will always call you for the close contact before any message goes out.
