Week of May 9, 2017


The May Senior Newsletter is now available on the School Counseling Website (https://sites.google.com/a/gsgis.k12.va.us/mlw-school-counseling/2011-2012-newsletters). This newsletter contains college-related reminders and a listing of scholarships with approaching deadlines. The latest newsletter was distributed to students in their English classes last week. Scholarship information for seniors is also available on the School Counseling website (https://sites.google.com/a/gsgis.k12.va.us/mlw-school-counseling/college-admissions-information-1/scholarships-financial-aid) and in Naviance (https://connection.naviance.com/mlwgs). Contact your child’s counselor if you would like to view the Naviance scholarship database and need your registration code. Scholarships are still being added to this database on a monthly basis, most with direct links to the applications. Hard-copy applications are scanned and attached to the scholarship description as a PDF. Please note that all deadlines posted on Naviance or in the Newsletter are subject to change as organizations are still sending us updated information for this school year. Check the organization’s website for the most current information. Please contact Rachel Loving in the School Counseling Office with scholarship questions.

May 24 & 25 3:20 – 4:30 p.m., Auditorium

Showcasing MLWGS Senior musical talent is an important tradition at Senior Recognition Night and graduation.  For example, vocalists are needed to sing The Star Spangled Banner.  Additional performers or performance groups (instrumental or vocal) are sought for both events.   Students should begin preparing if they would like to audition.   Any MLWGS senior or group of seniors interested in auditioning must sign up for a time slot by May 17 on the list outside the Forum.  Final decisions will be made by a committee of faculty members and the class officers.   Note: All students intending to perform must be present at auditions and are required to perform their intended piece for graduation or Senior Night.

MAY 9, 6:00 p.m. in the BLACK BOX THEATER

Drama Boosters needs your help and participation.  We have Volunteer openings for next year as our senior parents are “graduating.” 

Please contact Ryan Giorgis at giorgisfamily4@gmail.com for more information.


The Maggie L. Walker Athletic Boosters Club will hold its Annual Meeting at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, May 15, in room 105.  Athletic Boosters Board Officers and Directors for the 2017-2018 academic year will be elected at this meeting.  All Athletic Boosters members are invited to attend.  Anyone interested in serving on the Board or serving as a parent representative for one of the sports teams should contact Athletic Boosters President Rich Schweiker at dukeschweikers@aol.com.  The Board also is looking for a volunteer to conduct its annual audit.  Performing the audit is a great way to help support athletics at Maggie Walker with a limited time commitment.  Please also contact Athletic Boosters President Rich Schweiker if you are interested in helping with the audit or have any questions about this volunteer opportunity.


Friday, May 12, is the last day to pre-order a 2017 Yearbook. Order forms are available outside Room 121. (Online ordering is no longer available.) After May 12, students will have to wait until Yearbooks are distributed in school (likely the first week of June) to purchase theirs. The cost is $55.
