Social & Emotional Learning (SEL): Your Weekly Tip
Lifetouch School Pictures
Parents, if your 9th, 10th, or 11th grader took pictures with Lifetouch earlier in the year those pictures are now available for pickup in the main office of the school during school hours. Even if you did not order pictures there will be a package for you with a proof sheet and directions on how to order them if you are so inclined.
The yearbook staff is moving right along in producing a truly unique yearbook, if you are planning to order a yearbook for your student it would be helpful to do so earlier rather than wait for later in the year as we will be solidifying our order total by the end of March. We do not plan to order a lot of extra yearbooks to be made available for sale on yearbook distribution day so if you want to guarantee that your student has one please order on our publisher's website at www.yearbookordercenter.com, use the code 15298 to find our school, then just follow the steps to order a yearbook.
Midyear Transcript Requests
If you need an official midyear transcripts submitted to any college/university, please complete the midyear transcript request form. Midyear transcript requests are $5 each and should be paid through the K12 Payment Center.
Some colleges allow students to self-report their midyear grades. If this is the case, email your counselor to request an unofficial copy of your midyear transcript to upload directly to your application.
Midyear transcript requests will not be processed until February 1st.
