Elk Herd


May 3-6th - Elkview Middle students will be participating in the 2022 WV General Summative Assessment.  
This is required of all students in grades 6-8.  It is very important that students are on time each morning that we are giving the assessment.  We are strongly encouraging the students to be present each day with a reward at the end for those that have perfect attendance during these testing sessions.

Please double check your child's appointment schedule during these dates.  We encourage you to reschedule appointments if there is a conflict.  Again, all students must take this assessment.   Once the student is in the test session, we will not be permitted to remove them for an appointment.  PLEASE CHECK YOUR SCHEDULES FOR ANY CONFLICTS.

Parent pick up at the end of the day.......Please help us with the flow of traffic on our bus lot and to minimize congestion with these helpful guidelines...

  1. There must be two lines with cars in both lines all the way into the curve at the back of the lot.
  2. The single lane of cars next to where the buses park must be pulled to the far left.  The buses must have plenty of room to get down through there and still be able to load students.

We appreciate everyone's help with this.  When everyone works together, it makes this run more smoothly.  Thank you.



We are putting together some very cool events for College and Career Week this year and we need your help! We need about 15 volunteers to help out with an event for our 8th grade students that simulates running  a household  budget and opens up many other important lessons for our students!  We also are looking for several volunteers to help out with a career fair. We need volunteers from all disciplines and trades to represent the wide variety of options that are available in the workforce. If you are interested in helping out with either of these needs, please get in touch with one of our school counselors at [email protected] or [email protected]. Thank you!
