Week of September 8, 2015

Welcome to your 2015-16 School Year!

It's newsletter time!!!! We will start your week off with our High School Newsletter to keep you in the know of High school Happenings!! Take some time each week to check it out!

How is your school year starting out??? There have been lots of changes! Right?!?! Some have been smooth, some have provided us with opportunities to practice patience! We are reminded that change is a process....not an event! So as the new system is rolled out, we are learning things that work well and K12 is revamping things that are not! If you are having a consistent issue or issues, keep a log of them and feel free to provide feedback to K12 and/or your advisor! Remember we are learning along with you, so if we don't know the answer we may direct you to someone else or do some investigating before we know!



Let's hope for fewer plot twists and more happy endings :-D
