Happy New Year Wolverines!

I wanted to reach out and remind all families of current 9th-11th graders that Curriculum Night, which includes an Electives Fair Open House and West Potomac Academy Open House, is next Monday evening.  Here is a flyer for the event. The agenda is below.  With course selection beginning later this month, this is an important opportunity to gather information about classes, ask teachers questions, and hear from our Student Services Department about Graduation Requirements.  New this year, we will also be going over how students will be making their course selections on their StudentVue account.  Students are invited to attend with their parents. 

Breakout Session information for the second part of the evening will be sent out later this week.

We look forward to seeing you next Monday night!

Director of Student Services
