Keeping you Informed

5forALL Focus

5forALL has not gone away and it is still a district initiative that we will focus on throughout the year. I will highlight a technique or strategy that is part of 5forALL each week.

5forALL Infographic


This week I have attached an article about Attentive Listening which has insights and strategies.


Cool Story- We recently had a student who lost their father, I will not name him as he has wanted to keep it private, and the funeral was on Friday. On Saturday at the student's Pop Warner Football game he scored 3 touchdowns! It was really cool to hear that from one of his coaches yesterday and a great way to honor his father.


Site Visit- This Friday Dr. Adamson, Director of Assesment and Accountability, will be on campus from 10:30 am to 12:00 pm. We will be stopping by classrooms during this time.


NEW Homework Club for 7th and 8th- Every Thursday after school from 3:35 pm to 4:35 pm there will be a free homework club where students can get help from a credentialed teacher and peer tutors. The Homework Club will be in room 34.


Saturday Academy- We are encouraging any student with a full day absence (E, U or R in Aeries) to attend Saturday Academy. Schools are funded by our daily attendance and Saturday Academy helps recuperate money lost due to absences. Any student may attend. During this time we have help from our NJHS students and a credentialed teacher so students can complete work. Please fill out this form if you would like your student to attend https://forms.gle/fsWDMPLoKboiyEZz7


Halloween Dress Up

Students are allowed to wear or have...

  • Masks & Props - only to be worn for the Dress-up Contest at lunch

  • Appropriate costumes that will not offend

  • Makeup

  • Weapons of any kind
