Welcome to Henrico High School for 2018-2019!

Congratulations!  You have found Mrs. Gooden’s blogsite about Henrico’s testing and tutoring.
What do you need to know about tutoring at Henrico?
We offer before school, warrior time, after-school and Saturday school on select Saturdays with teachers.
We offer pull-out tutoring during the school day with tutors for SOL remediation and Spring SOL preparation.

How do I get signed up for tutoring?

Mainly teachers sign students up for tutoring. Mrs. Gooden and Counselors sign up students for SOL remediation. Parents and students can ask  to be added if extra help is deemed necessary.

What do you need to know about testing at Henrico?

SOL Testing for Retakes begins in September and goes throughout the year.
Attached is the word version of the Henrico Testing Calendar for 2017-2018 and on the side is the google calendar you can import into your google calendar or outlook calendar.
Make sure you sign up for writing or non-writing testing on the posts listed below this post.

Mrs. Gooden is happy to meet with you about SOL’s or testing concerns.
It takes teamwork to make the dreamwork!
