A Message from the Director...

Hello Everyone,

Another great week at JMW.  Please note that on Friday, March 17th, we had a special assembly to review school rules and policies.  A form went home that needs to be signed by parents/guardians.  Please send the form back to school promptly.  Also, the deadline for SurveyWorks is quickly approaching.  A letter was sent home regarding the survey.  Please return the signed form to school as well. 

In other news, we will soon begin SAT and PARCC Testing.  For all 11th grade students, the SAT will be a great opportunity to take a college admission test for free at school on April 5th.  Your child can be studying and preparing for that test through free test prep with KhanAcademy at www.khanacademy.com

Also note that the National Association for College Admission Counseling is holding their Rhode Island College Fair on Monday May 8th at the Rhode Island Convention Center at 5:30pm. Get more information at www.nacacnet.org Also, The College Planning Center of Rhode Island is holding their fifth annual College Day Conference: MAPPING SUCCESS at the Providence Career and Technical Academy, 41 Fricker Street, Providence RI 02903 Saturday, April 1, 2017 / 8:30-12:30 For more information check out their website at www.cpcri.org , they offer many free services at different locations in Rhode Island.
