    As we are just 15 days away from the end of the first marking term, I wanted to remind students and parents that many of our elective courses needed for graduation are only a term long, meaning it is extremely important that students pass the first marking term. First, it sets them up for success in the second term for the semester and year-long courses, and it also means that they passed our term courses. For example, students enrolled in PE, Art 1, Music, Drama, and the tech course are in classes that are only one term long. If they don't pass the quarter classes they are currently enrolled in then they fail the course. I know that you have probably heard how important

    Homecoming was a little different with our football game being canceled and then our soccer games being rescheduled because of rain, but overall, it was a great success, and the students who attended the dance on Saturday had a great time. Starting Monday, we will begin to count tardies to school and class. The first and second tardy will be a warning, the third tardy will be a detention. The 4th tardy and beyond will result in

  • ELA Test Sept 22 and 29 -- Delayed opening non test takers

    Reminder for delayed opening this coming Wednesday, September 22nd (and next week on September 29th). All students should have received a "testing ticket" on Friday that indicates if they will be a tested student on either of those days or not. For those that need to test, the ticket will indicate if the student needs to report for testing on the 22nd, the 29th, or both days, along with the assessment(s) the student will take, and the room number to report to by 7:45. If there is a day your student is not reporting for testing, they should arrive at 11:15, at which time we will conclude testing and resume our normal schedule with 3rd and 4th period only. Bus transportation will make two runs on these delayed opening days, a run during normal time to pick up testers
