    Guidance Counselors fill an important role in our school and we’d like to recognize them during National School Counseling Week for all that they do for us all year long. Counselors have masters or Educational Specialist degrees and they focus on three major areas including personal/social development, career counseling, and academic counseling. Counselors are trained in crisis counseling, abide by a code of ethics, and maintain confidentiality unless the student is in danger. They maintain a non-judgmental approach and reach students through individual, small and large group, or classroom counseling. Counselors strive for students to be successful, safe, and to be the best that they can be.

    Setting goals in life are important for all of us.  Today we congratulate Ms. Knowlton on accomplishing a goal she set for herself.  Today is her 1000th day of running. 

    The Warriors football team traveled to Spotsylvania Middle yesterday and came away with a 14-8 win. After giving up a touchdown on the opening drive, the Warriors tightened up and kept the Bulldogs out of the end zone for the remainder of the game. The defense was led by Justin Wright who recorded several key plays including a sack and a forced fumble. Our strong defense came at the hands of Juelz Berryman, Rio Santos-Barros, Steve Garland, Emory Padgett, Naikwon Jackson, Deion Berry and Mark Smetek. Rio’s sack in the last play of the game secured the win. Naikwon Jackson led the offense with 151 yards and 2 touchdowns on 14 carries. Justin Wright added a 2 point conversion in the 1st half. Isaiah French’s strong leadership led the team through the rough times in the game. The Warriors are back in action at home on Thursday as they take on Chancellor Middle, the defending county champions. This will be a “free seating at lunch challenge” for students. The grade with the most students in attendance wins.

    The Lady Warriors basketball team played yesterday at Ni River Middle School.  The Falcons dominated the first half with an 18-10 lead.  However, with a change in defense and a full court press, the Lady Warriors were able to storm back during the 4th quarter and win the game 41 – 32 and increase their record to 5-1.

    This week we continue to celebrate our freedom to read with the awareness that books are often challenged and sometimes removed from library shelves because people or groups of people object to content, language or themes.  We believe that everyone has the right to choose books for themselves. In 2018, there were 347 official book challenges involving 483 books.

    The Lady Warriors soccer team fell to Thornburg Middle School, yesterday. Scoring goals for the Warriors were Cristina Matos and Ariel Hadeed.

    The Lady Warriors basketball team won against Thornburg with a score of 41-16, yesterday afternoon.  Although they had a slow start, the ladies focused on defense, passing, and transition offense to surge ahead and bring their record to 4-1.
