Fall Exam Schedule Set & Exam Exemptions
The Fall Exam Schedule is set. Please click here for details. Teacher-made exams will be given on the January 17. That is a normal school day for students. While a student may be exempt from a teacher-made exam that does not exempt the student from coming to school.
State-mandated exams, like the End-of-Course exams in Math 1, Math 3, Biology, and English 2 do not have exemptions. All students taking those courses must take the exam for that course. Students who are not proficient on the End-of-Course exam will be required to retest.
Exam exemption details can be found here. Please be reminded that exam exemptions are not required by the teacher. It is an option that the teacher can afford students.
Welcome Our Newest Math Teacher: Mrs. Grablin
We are excited to welcome our newest member to the Hawks nest, Mrs. Jennifer Grablin, who will be teaching math for us. Mrs. Grablin comes to us with experience in the public and private educational sector. Upon talking with her, you will learn that she is passionate about the well-being of her students in and out of the classroom. Mrs. Grablin will be taking over the Math 2 sections this semester and helping those students complete the NCVPS requirements by providing direct instruction and support as the semester comes to an end. We are glad to have Mrs. Grablin on our team. Mrs. Grablin's first day at Seaforth is Wednesday, December 6.
