CHILDREN IN SANTA'S DREAMS DONATIONS

MIDTERM EXAM INFORMATION
Midterms for ALL LEARNERS both IN PERSON and REMOTE, will occur synchronously.
This means if your student has English in their schedule during 2nd period, their English exam will be on December 15, 2020 from 8:22 a.m. - 10:21 a.m. according to the schedule below. If your student is unable to take the exam at the scheduled time, they will need to schedule a make-up exam with their teacher. No exams will be given prior to December 15, 2020. Any student, REMOTE or IN PERSON who misses the scheduled exam at the scheduled time, will be allowed a make-up exam without penalty. A zero will be entered into the gradebook but will be replaced with the exam grade once the exam has been made up. If the student does not arrange to make-up the exam, then the zero will remain in the gradebook.
Please review the schedule below and plan accordingly. If you have questions or concerns, please reach out to your child's teacher or counselor.

FALL EXEMPTION POLICY
Seniors are the only students in the Fall semester that may be exempt from final exams for half-credit courses which have a final exam, not a midterm. Students must maintain an 85-100 class average for the semester (18-weeks). In addition, the following criteria apply as well:
- Seniors must meet the criteria listed above and the discipline requirement listed below. Seniors may be exempt from all their final exams both in the Fall (semester-long courses) and Spring semesters (year-long courses). Seniors may not be exempt from midterm exams in the Fall semester.
- Underclassmen are not eligible for exemptions from final exams or midterms in the Fall semester.
- A student granted a final exam exemption must still attend that class during the final exam period and must be present the entire duration of the final exam period to be considered exempt. Students who check out early during a final exam will forfeit the exemption and will receive a grade of Incomplete for the exam. Failure to attend will result in a zero or an incomplete for that course.
- Any student that has served SAC/ISS, DAEP, or OSS while enrolled in a course during the semester of the final exam is not eligible for a final exam exemption for that course.
- To ensure that all students have the opportunity to complete their exams in a distraction-free environment, the attendance office will not be doing early checkouts during exam periods. Parents and students should plan accordingly so that students remain in their exam period the entire duration of the exam period (both mid-term and final exams).
EVENING HOMEWORK HELP:
Evening Homework Help is offered through virtual and in-person sessions on Mondays-Thursdays from 5:30-7:30 P.M. on the Senior Campus for all students 9th - 12th. To participate virtually, please contact your Math, Science, English, or Spanish teacher to access the link through Canvas. In-person sessions are offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays for Math and Science in Room 302; on Mondays for Spanish in Room 226. English is only offered virtually at this time.
Mondays and Wednesdays
Tuesdays and Thursdays
All 10th and 11th grade students (and some 9th grade students as well) completed the PSAT on October 14 this week. We hope to have those scores back in December. At that time, we will send home information about how to access their PSAT score report online. Each student will have an access code or will already have a College Board account from a previous experience with College Board such as an earlier PSAT, etc. At this time, please do not create anything new with College Board until you get your student’s score reports back in December. We will have further instructions in December.
The counseling department would like to ask families in need to contact their child’s counselor. We would like to be your point of contact so that we can aide in distributing donations from the community to our families. Donations will be disbursed from December 14th through December 17th.
If you would like to donate to families within our feeder zone in need, please contact Stacey Moseley, Lead Counselor, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our campus PTO will be emailing everyone about the procedures for collecting donations this holiday season. The times for collection will be from November 30th through December 11th. With only one more school week left to go, the counseling department hopes everyone has a relaxing and enjoyable Thanksgiving holiday the following week!
As COVID cases begin to spike again, we want to remind everyone to continue to be vigilant about wearing a mask that covers BOTH YOUR NOSE AND YOUR MOUTH while at school (unless eating or drinking), or anywhere else in public where you may be in close contact with others. Avoid touching your face, sanitize your hands frequently, stay home if you are having any symptoms, and avoid gatherings or riding in cars with people who you do not live with. We need everyone’s help to stop the spread of this virus, and ensure that our schools can stay open, especially as we approach holiday season, where there are many opportunities to get together with friends and extended family.
Parents, if someone in your household tests positive for COVID, please notify the school clinic as soon as possible at 936-709-1076 for the Senior Campus or at 832-592-8209 for the 9th Grade Campus, and email a copy of the positive test, if it is for one of our students, to email@example.com for the Senior Campus or to firstname.lastname@example.org for the 9th Grade Campus. Please also contact the clinic if your child has been identified as a close contact to someone who tests positive. Unfortunately, it is not possible to “test out of quarantine”. Even if someone has multiple negative tests, they will still be required to quarantine at home for 14 days after the last exposure if they have been identified as a close contact. The CISD Roadmap to Reopening https://www.conroeisd.net/roadmap-to-reopening/ has a lot of good information, if you have not had an opportunity to check it out.
November 20th vs. Cypress Woods
On Friday, November 20th, The Highlanders faced a good Cypress Woods team at home. The Highlanders opened with a strong 1st quarter and jumped out to an 18-13 lead, a lead which they maintained late into the 2nd quarter. However, with just under 3 minutes to play in the half, a 3-pointer and a couple of costly turnovers led to an 10-1 run by the Wildcats, leading to a 29-24 halftime deficit. The Wildcats extended that lead to 12 with about a minute remaining in the 3rd quarter before The Highlanders started to fight back, closing to within 6 with about 4 minutes to play. They were never able to get any closer the rest of the way, and The Highlanders finished with their first loss of the season by a score of 55-46. Scoring for The Highlanders were Brock Luechtefeld-12, Shey Eberwein-11, David Omokwale-8, Zach Bernu-6, Isaiah Brown-4, Hagen Byerly-3, and Kylan Williams-2. In other games, the JV won 50-40, the Sophomores lost 43-51, the Freshman Green won 44-42, and the Freshman Red won 42-22.
November 23rd vs. Langham Creek
On Monday, November 23rd, the boys played another CyFair ISD school as the Langham Creek Lobos came to play The Highlanders at the 9th grade campus. Unlike their previous 3 games, The Highlanders did not get off to a fast start against the Lobos and at the end of the 1st quarter found themselves trailing 17-12. The second quarter saw more of the same, with scoring opportunities for The Highlanders somewhat limited due to a number of turnovers, and at halftime, The Highlanders were down 26-17. The third quarter was a different story, with The Highlanders storming back, outscoring the Lobos 18-7, leading to a 35-33 lead going into the 4th. During the 4th quarter, both teams battled back and forth. With 40 seconds remaining and the score tied at 44-44, David Omokwale took a charge to give the Highlanders the ball and the opportunity to play for the last shot. Coach Reed took a timeout to call a final play with 13.4 seconds remaining in the game. Unfortunately, the shot by Hagen Byerly at the buzzer was just short, and the game went into overtime. In overtime, The Highlanders got the tip and scored the first bucket, giving them the early advantage, but the Lobos scored on their next possession to tie it again. The Highlanders scored again to take a two-point lead and were able to rebound a miss by the Lobos on the next possession. Unfortunately, a missed three-pointer gave the ball back to the Lobos, who capitalized, hitting a three-pointer on their next possession to take a one-point lead. Another missed three-pointer by the Highlanders saw the Lobos start to hold the ball, forcing The Highlanders to foul with about 40 seconds remaining. The Lobos hit both free throws for a three-point lead. A clutch three-pointer by Shey Eberwein tied it up again with 18.6 seconds to play. After a timeout, The Lobos took a late shot and missed but got fouled on the offensive rebound, hitting one of two free throws for a one-point lead. This gave The Highlanders one last opportunity with 2.1 seconds remaining. Unfortunately, the last second shot came up short and The Highlanders picked up their second loss of the season with a final score of 52-51. Scoring for The Highlanders were Shey Eberwein-16, Zach Bernu-9, Brock Luechtefeld-8, Kylan Williams-8, Isaiah Brown-4, David Omokwale-4, and John O’Connor-2. In other games, the JV won 60-47.
November 24th vs. South Houston
On Tuesday, November 24th, The Highlanders traveled to Pasadena to face the South Houston Trojans in an early afternoon game on the road. The first quarter got off to a slow start, but The Highlanders were able to effectively shut down the Trojans, leading to a 12-6 opening quarter lead. The second was more well-played by both teams, but with The Highlanders hitting three 3-pointers in the frame, they went into halftime with a 27-17 lead. The third quarter was all Highlanders, as the boys outscored the Trojans 22-9, contributing to a 49-26 lead at the end of three. The game was never in doubt after that, and The Highlanders cruised to a 68-34 win and a 3 and 2 record going into Thanksgiving. Scoring for The Highlanders were Zach Bernu-17, Shey Eberwein-13, Isaiah Brown-12, Brock Luechtefeld-10, Hagen Byerly-6, David Omokwale-5,and Ben Burgess-5. In other games, the JV won 59-21 and the Freshman Green won 67-5.
December 1st vs. Magnolia
On Tuesday, December 1st, The Highlanders battled the 4 and 2 Magnolia Bulldogs, a game that is always well attended and entertaining since so many of the players know each other and played on AAU teams together. The opening quarter was a battle, with some clutch threes by the Bulldogs keeping them in the game, but after one, The Highlanders led 14-12. The second quarter was a different story as The Highlanders shut down the overmatched Bulldogs, going into halftime with a 32-18 lead. The third quarter was more of the same as The Highlanders stretched their lead to 51-30, and then cruised to a 62-41 victory and a 4 and 2 record. Scoring for The Highlanders were Brock Luechtefeld-21, Shey Eberwein-12, Isaiah Brown-11, Zach Bernu-5, David Omokwale-3, Chase Edwards-3, Kylan Williams-3, Hagen Byerly-2, and John O’Connor-2. In other games, the Freshman Green lost to Magnolia's JV 61-56.
The Highlanders have a busy weekend playing at Spring on Friday Dec. 4th 7pm, home on Saturday Dec 5th at 3pm vs. Memorial. Then on Monday we travel to Tomball Memorial for a 7pm game.

Lady Highlander Basketball season is off and running! The Lady Highlander Varsity had a big win over Kingwood heading into the Thanksgiving break. They were led by Anna-Claire Biggerstaff with 14 points and 5 rebounds. Ale Merodio also had a good night with 10 points and 7 rebounds. Sophia Weisbrod did a great job battling for rebounds with 11 on the night. The Lady Highlanders then came home to play CyFair last Monday and came away with a big 55-43 win over the bobcats. Three Lady Highlanders ended the night in double digits. Laura Haas had 12 points, Anna-Claire Biggerstaff also had 12 points along with 7 rebounds, and Anna Orr ended the game with a double double of 11 points and 10 rebounds. The girls lost a tough one against Memorial the Tuesday before Thanksgiving and another hard fought game against Humble this past Tuesday. But these girls have a ton of fight in them, and they are looking forward to a great game Friday night versus Cleveland!! Go Highlanders!
