Do You Need To Make Up Productive Hours?

Don't wait! All teachers are available Tuesday - Friday, after school from 1:40 - 2:25 pm with the exception of a few days where meetings are held (your teacher will let you know when he/she is unavailable). Start making up hours now and speak with your teachers about how and when to make up your productive hours. Remember 40 productive hours and a passing grade will earn you 5 credits for each of your classes!

What Do You Know About Grit?

Our weekly video clips on the topics of Growth Mindset and Grit will begin this week. These video clips will be shown during Period 3 every Monday. Grit and Growth Mindset are two areas of focus for our school and we wanted to share these video clips with you as well. It is our hope seeing messages like the ones in this video will help our students think about the choices they are making and help increase their perseverance in achieving their goals. We hope you enjoy the video clip seen below and know that your students will be viewing it this week during their Period 3 class.

Students...Earn Your Productive Hours!

Quarter 2 has 43 days and you need 40 productive hours and a passing grade to earn 5 credits in each of your classes. Do your best to be at school ON TIME every day and on time for ALL of your classes with your cell phones and headphones put away. We are here to support you, please let us know how we can help.

Note: All students will earn a productive hour for each of their classes for Friday, November 9th when school was canceled due to the fires.

Congrats to our October 2018 Student of the Month

This past week Becca was honored by the Noontime Rotary Club on her accomplishment of being chosen October's Student of the Month. Thank you to the Noontime Rotary for celebrating our student! After high school, Becca plans to attend college to reach her goal of becoming a social worker. We were so glad your family was able to celebrate this honor with you. Keep up the great work!

Aeries Portal

Logging in and monitoring your student's grades can all be done from the Aeries portal. The importance of this cannot be communicated enough. Parents and students will be able to better partner with the teachers by monitoring students' grades, productive hours, attendance, and other important information within Aeries. if you need help accessing your portal, please contact Carolina Bowers in the office.

If you think there is an issue, don't wait. Contact the teacher and find out how to fix the problem.
