Parent Message 4-11
Good evening, Clipper families. This is Principal Savage with your weekly message.
We had a busy week last week with Homecoming, our virtual assembly, pictures and the start of the 4th term.
Did your student take Algebra 1 and/or English 10 this school year, either in semester 1 or currently in semester 2? If so, we will be providing an opportunity to satisfy the assessment graduation requirement by taking the test this spring while the content is fresh! Any hybrid or virtual student who took Algebra 1 and/or English 10/ Honors English 10/Pre-AP English 10 this school year, with parent input, can sign-up at the link to take the assessment this May. The link and more information can be found in the letter that is attached to the email portion of this message. This information is also posted to each grade level google classroom, and you can also ask any teacher for the link. If your student took either of those courses this year and choose not to participate in testing this spring, the requirement for graduation will NOT go away and the requirement will be to test next fall. If you have any further questions about this test administration, please contact our school testing coordinator, Mrs. Gosseline, at email@example.com
Just a remind that counselors are working through their caseloads for scheduling starting with seniors and dual enrollments students moving onto current sophomores followed by our freshmen. All students will have the same opportunities to get the classes they desire as we will build our schedule based off student requests. If your student requested an appointment, their counselor will set up an appointment via the student’s email. Students should be checking their school email accounts for scheduling updates. Once the process is complete students will receive an official copy of their course requests for the 2021-2022 school year.
We have Parent Teacher Conference this week on the 15th from 5-7. If you are interested in meeting with a teacher, please complete the information in the link provided. https://forms.gle/Nx4RSE3CMqjdxnhw9
