November 30th to December 5th
Time To Rise and Shine
We are at week 11! It's a good time to prioritize both time and focus!
Academic goals help your busy high schoolers focus on what matters the most...
- Be specific and realistic: Teenagers are more likely to meet a goal like " I will get an A on my next geometry test" rather than "I will ace geometry this semester!" Instead of a general goal ("I will be more organized"), concentrate on updating her/his planner daily.
- Make a plan: Your student should decide what to do to reach each goal, such as starting a study group or updating his/her planner at the end of each class.
Magnify their strengths, not their weaknesses

BlendEd Academy News!
The BlendED Academy is a cohort of freshmen and sophomore students who, in addition to taking their three core classes, are exposed and immersed in community-focused projects and learning experiences that transcend a traditional classroom experience. For more information, please contact Charlie Goetzinger, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The following events are scheduled to assist Cedar Rapids Metro area families with completing the FAFSA form. These are virtual events. Participants will be guided through the completion of the FAFSA form virtually, with a presenter coaching them and answering questions as they work at home on their laptop or desktop computer (a tablet can be used if necessary.) Each participant will go into a virtual breakout room with an advisor to review the completed FAFSA before signing and submitting.

Students - Yearbook Survey
SAFETY for the 2020 School Year
- Appropriate masks must be worn, and be worn appropriately, at all times
- Gators must be folded over, or be 2 ply of thickness
- IDs will be worn on a lanyard.
- Students will need their charged devices every day, every period
- Social distancing will be expected whenever possible, including lunch
- Students will be asked to move quickly from one classroom to the next without gathering in common spaces
- Hand sanitizing stations are located in all parts of the building and students will need to use these as they enter and exit the classroom
This is all done so that we can keep students and staff safe and healthy. The better we are at these, the easier it will be to stay at school.
