Sparrows Point Community Collection
2019-2020 - Volume One
Greetings Pointer Students and Families,
It has been a wonderful fall at Sparrows Point High School! With the close of the first marking period, students and parents will be provided with an important report on academic progress during the first 9 weeks of the school year, when report cards are distributed on November 21. This is an excellent time to evaluate areas of academic strength and growth, as well as any academic supports that may be beneficial during the second marking period.
Focus on attendance: our goal is for all students to meet the BCPS attendance standard of 94% or higher. This means that a student should miss no more than 2 days per marking period. As we enter the second marking period, students and families are asked to carefully monitor student attendance. Students who attend school regularly and miss 2 or fewer days per marking period are more likely to succeed during their post-secondary plans, whether that be college or career.
I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the 18 students named as Pointers of the Week during Marking Period 1. These students exemplify the Pointer B.A.R.K. and we are proud of their contributions to our school community, keep up the great work!
In closing, a reminder that we welcome and encourage active involvement from our parents and families. Please join our PTSA, attend a parent workshop, follow us on Twitter @SparrowsPointHS, access our school website http://sparrowspoinths.bcps.org/, and attend the many activities and athletic events here on campus.
I look forward to working with you throughout the school year. Should you have any questions or concerns, I invite you to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
