The Wise County STAR Council will be providing our 6th-grade students with a weekly program called "Life Skills" beginning Sept. 11, 2019. The program is 8 weeks long and will be taught on Wednesdays during Coach Wilson's social studies classes. All 6th-grade students will be bringing home a course outline and an "opt-out" form in the next few days. If you wish for your student to "opt-out" of this class, please sign and return the form to Coach Wilson. He will provide an alternate social studies activity for them during that time. If you have any questions, you may contact the PJHl counselor, Johna Ford, at 940 969-5029 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
