Seco Scoop

Arroyo Seco Jr. High School -- September 13, 2019

Principal's Message

Hello Seco Families,


Our first progress reporting period ends today, marking the halfway point of the first quarter. Progress report grades will be posted in Infinite Campus on the afternoon of Tuesday, September 17.


Monday is our first Parent Advisory and School Site Council meeting of the school year. We will meet at 8:30 am in K Hall. Topics will include an ELAC update, the use of social media, and strategies to help your child cope with stress. Breakfast treats and coffee will be provided. We look forward to seeing many of you there!


Please help us by reminding your children not to walk or ride through the local elementary school on their way to and from school. We encourage them to be respectful of our local neighbors and businesses and appreciate your support, especially with a minimum day coming up on Thursday the 19th (dismissal at 11:35 am). If students do ride bikes or skateboards, they should be wearing helmets in accordance with the law.


Thank you to all who have participated in our Clash for Cash fundraiser. If you haven't done so yet, there's still time! We appreciate all of your support. Your generosity not only allows us to provide your children with a variety of activities and experiences, but will hopefully allow us to upgrade our sound system in K Hall. Thank you!


Have a great weekend.
