  • Veterans Day Assembly-
    On Monday November 11, Wesleyan will celebrate Veterans Day in Yancey gymnasium from 9 - 9:55 a.m. The intent is to celebrate all those who have previously served, are currently serving or are working their way to serve our country. All members of the Wesleyan community are invited to attend. I am sending this out to you for two reasons. First, we recognize those who are immediate family (meaning your spouse or children) of people in the Wesleyan community during the assembly with a slide show. We keep it to immediate members due to time constraints. The current list is attached. Please let me know if one of your immediate family members needs to be added to this list. We will use a slide show that will show pictures of these individuals while the band plays. Please send me pictures by Friday, November 1st and let me know of any additions/corrections to this list. The second reason is to ask you to invite your extended family (son or daughter-in-law, your parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, grandparents, etc.) as well as members or friends in the community who have served to come join us. We will have special reserved seating in front of the stage on the gym floor for all Veterans and their families. Our guest speaker will be Steve Hopper who is a Vietnam Veteran. Following Vietnam, Steve spent 41 years at Caterpillar serving in various leadership (Technical and Staff Training, Service Management and Service Representative) capacities, retiring in February 2009. Steve has been married for 52 years to his wife Jennifer and is proud to have two daughters and six grandchildren. Since Vietnam, Steve has been recognized in a book titled “The Boys Of 67”, released in 2012. This book details the combat experiences of his company, Charlie Company, while serving in Vietnam. Steve was also in a documentary titled “Brothers In War” produced by National Geographic, released in 2014 and also captured their stories and experiences in Vietnam”. We are excited to hear his message.
    Once again, if you have any additions, please email me by Friday, November 1st. Thank you for your help and support of our Veterans.

  • Parent U: OneNote How-To for MS Parents! -
    Tuesday, November 5th from 8:10-9:40am in McKeever
    Do you know how to navigate Microsoft OneNote on your child’s laptop and determine what content has been shared with your child from his/her teacher? Do you sometimes long for the days of the traditional three ring binder with tabs? Do you struggle to know how to locate your child’s class notes and homework pages on their laptop? Do words like “Content Library” seem like a foreign language to you? Please join us for this Parent U focusing on all things OneNote for middle school parents. We will review the design basics of any class OneNote notebook. We will also look at how teachers use these notebooks to deliver content, and how students use it to take notes, complete homework, and prepare for assessments. Our hope is that you leave with the ability to navigate your child’s OneNote notebooks without needing their help! We look forward to seeing you there so that you can become the next OneNote Pro Parent!
    Led by Indyasia Fowler, science teacher, Tracey Greene, math teacher, Sarah Peebles, math teacher, and Jewel Anderson, Instructional Technologist and Department Chair for Library Services
