Principal's Message

February 2016

Dear Parents, Guardians, Students and Community Members:

The month of February is the time when our school begins the second and final semester of the school year. While it is hard to believe that the 2015-16 school year is half way completed, it is important for our students reflect on their accomplishments and struggles during the first two quarters and continue to strive towards excellence.

Your child’s second quarter grades are scheduled to be available for review on the parent portal on Friday, February 5. Parents are encouraged to attend our Parent/Teacher Conference on Wednesday, February 10th to discuss specific concerns regarding your child’s progress. It is my continued vision for us to work together to provide the support our children need to be successful.

Social-Emotional learning and programming continues to remain a high-priority at the high school. Education that focuses on the emotional well-being of students is of paramount importance and is directly correlated to academic success and personal happiness.

On January 5 and 6, the 11th grade students attended “Challenge Day’, a program that focuses on building connections and empathy, and creating an environment where they are loved and celebrated. This is fourth year of the program and it continually receives positive feedback from our students and faculty.

We are in the process of planning our 8th annual ‘Suicide Awareness and Prevention’ program for our freshmen students. This program is facilitated by our Theatre students, Natural Helpers senior trainers, mental health team, Mrs. Mitchell (health teacher) and me. The program encourages students to speak to adults if someone (including themselves) is having depressive and/or suicidal thoughts.

Please review the dates below for upcoming events and timelines:

February 15-19: Mid-Winter Break
March 15: Winter Concert, 7:00 p.m.
March 7: Spring Sports Begin

I look forward to seeing you at future events this semester and if we can ever be of assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact the high school.
