Cavalier Community Corner

Weekly Parent and Community Update 10-11 - 10-15, 2021

Dear Families, Friends, and Community,

This is our weekly Cavalier Corner where we discuss what is happening at W.C, Friday Middle School.

The first week of October is behind us. We had a lot of success last week. We started our new Cavalier Connections enrichment block. I know it will have a positive impact on each of our students. We also saw some great gains and strides made in the classroom. Thank you for your support on our journey. We value family and community support.


Our Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens focus this week is on Habit 1: Be Proactive. Encourage your student(s) to have proactive thinking in all that they do. Look for ways to think ahead, problem solve, and be purposeful and impactful with all of their decisions.


I hope you all have a safe and productive week.


Cavalier Pride!
