Skyward Mobile App
For those of you who are using the Skyward mobile app, you may notice that there is a discrepancy with some letter grades and numerical grades in the P3 column (Progress Report 3rd Nine Weeks). The school district has alerted Skyward regarding this issue; however, at this time a technology fix is unavailable.
The P3 column is the column that represents a student's grade at the moment progress reports were generated by the school. When the progress report was generated the numerical score and the letter grade were correct. In many cases, students completed make-up work which increased the students' numerical grade. While Skyward reflects the adjusted numerical grade, it does not change the initial progress report letter grade the student received.
The district apologizes for any confusion this may have caused. Please know we have expressed our concerns with Skyward. From this point forward, please know this discrepancy exists only in the Skyward mobile app.
Mamma Mia Spring Musical March 28-30th
Check out this great article about our spring musical!
Concert Band and Symphonic Band performed at the MTSBOA Concert Performance Assessment. This is basically our big “test” for the year in terms of concert performance. I’m glad to say both ensembles received superior ratings (the highest possible) in both concert and sight reading performance. Symphonic Band earned 27 out of 29 superiors so you could say that was pretty close to a “perfect score.” By virtue of their accomplishments, both groups have received an invitation to play at the Tennessee Music Education Association State Concert Festival. In addition the band program has now earned the Tennessee Bandmasters Sweepstakes Award for a historic 4th consecutive year!
Congratulations to students, faculty and staff!
Service- Emma Brewer
"Not only does Emma excel academically, she is a star on the soccer field. She also serves on student council and takes her role as a service learner seriously. She printed all of the student ID cards for our students. She does so much for our school!"
Athletics- Mia Harris
"Mia set the WCHS record for the highest placement of a female swimmer at State competition as well as the record for most state medals won."
Academics- David Wardle
"David has really stepped forward academically. He always turns his work in on time and excels in Algebra 2. He is always willing to help his classmates understand the material. He is not afraid to try new things and is always excited when he learns something new. David is a great all-around student."
Arts- Clara Lee
"Clara is a very dedicated band member and recently earned a spot in the TN 9-10 All-State Band."
Employee of the Month- Ann Mullins
"Ann is one of the truly unsung heroes at Wilson Central. She is always kind and respectful and works her tail off making sure attendance records are maintained properly. She does so without fanfare and it would be very nice to see her get at least a small recognition for her efforts."
Teacher of the Month- Kaci Long
"Being a teacher doesn't just mean helping students; it also means having faith in them. This is one of many areas in which Mrs. Long excels as a teacher. Many students find it difficult to adjust to the difficulty of Algebra I, but she always relentlessly reassures them that they have what it takes to succeed. She backs this up with her actions by always being willing to meet with students at lunch to assist them in their studies, and she successfully recruited a handful of students to help tutor those who are struggling in the subject. Mrs. Long also goes above and beyond to help the entire school, and this also connects to her faith in her students. She agreed to sponsor a student-founded club called C.H.A.N.G.E., and the decision was extremely selfless on her part. She knew that it would take time and effort on her part, but she had faith in the student body to successfully contribute to its own education through the club. Since making the decision, she has gone above and beyond to help the club take off. Therefore, Mrs. Long should be the teacher of the month due to her faith in her students and her perseverance in helping them to succeed."
