Principal's Message

January/February 2015

I hope this letter finds you well and that you had a restful and enjoyable holiday season. The months and January and February are a sign of new beginnings. Academically, it is when the first half of the year winds down and the second and final semester of the school year begins. While it is hard to believe that the 2014-15 school year is reaching the half-way point of completion, it is important that our students recognize and appreciate how significant of a time it is for them. It is a time to reflect on the accomplishments and struggles during the first two quarters and to plan accordingly to round out the school year successfully.

Parents will have access to second quarter grades on the parent portal on February 6. Parents are encouraged to attend Parent/Teacher Conference Night on Wednesday, February 11 from 6:30-8:30 P.M. to learn what can be done to help foster their child’s academic success. By continuing to work together, we can do what is best for our children and ensure they have the support and guidance necessary to foster their growth.

As refection on the character education programs we have conducted this year so far: Stomp Out Bullying Day, World Kindness Day, Safe Driving, Tolerance and Diversity, Suicide Awareness and Prevention (both) in February, and Challenge Day in March. Each event is designed in their unique way to promote positive peer-relationships, self-respect, and positive decision-making.

One final note, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support in making the high school the supportive, nurturing, and successful school it is.

Please check the school calendar for upcoming events and we look forward to seeing you in attendance.
