Attention 7th Grade NJHS Members

Double check your class schedule and make sure you are assigned WILSON for 1st hour Advisory. ALL 7th grade NJHS members should be in WILSON advisory. We will use Advisory time to do lots of NJHS activities so it's important that you are enrolled in the correct 1st hour. If your current schedule has a different teacher for 1st hour, just come to my classroom- the art room for 1st hour on the first day of school and we will fix it!😊
Loved meeting you all today! -Ms. Wilson
