March---Spring is Near!!

Spring is Coming !

It's March and we have three months to improve grades, attendance and focus on finishing the school successfully and countdown time for Graduating Seniors!


This month marks a full year since Covid interrupted school and life as we know it. Lets talk about Resiliency and what that is and why it is so important ! This is a concept that many psychologists have researched over the years and it is a Psychology Today describes it this way:


Resilience is that ineffable quality that allows some people to be knocked down by life and come back stronger than ever. Rather than letting failure overcome them and drain their resolve, they find a way to rise from the ashes.”


Some examples of things that foster our resiliency are : mental endurance, willpower, self-discipline, and perseverance. What's helps foster this sense of resiliency is : to be positive, use problem solving skills, manage your feelings and make realistic plans. Your school counselor or can help you with these skills !

At- Risk Grades and Meetings ..

Any student who has a failure in Quarter 1 or 2 in any subject will have a meeting set up soon with the school....Starting with Seniors then ending with Freshman ..as a way to prevent and plan for success.. and to be promoted onto the next year of High School!

SENIORS ! You Can Still Apply to College !

It's not too late!


Still thinking about college? Apply to these schools with rolling admissions.
