SC-Ready Assessment

Students in grades 3-5 (face to face) will be taking the state assessments tomorrow and Thursday. Please help our school by ensuring students get a good night's sleep, be at school on time each day, and encourage your child to do their very best on the state assessments. Students and teachers work hard all year and we want the world to see their dedication, perseverance, and hard work.

Summer Reading Packs

Wholeheartedly Helping Everyone Succeed

Summer Reading Packs will be coming home on June 10.

Our goal is for students to read at least 20 minutes a day during the summer to prevent a "summer slide". According to Education Week, the average student loses one to three months of learning over the summer.

Students will be allowed to pick out 4-5 free brand new books to add to their home libraries. We are so excited that our district has afforded us the opportunity to be able to give our students these new books! Thank you Anderson District Five!

Students will be asked to turn in a log of their reading time when they return to school in August. For the students that meet the minimum required summer reading, the WHES faculty and staff will have an exciting fun-filled surprise planned.

More information about Summer Reading will come home soon from our Reading Coach, Mrs. Amy Sanderson.
