Dear Cavalier Families,

Last week was a super busy celebratory week with our families and students! Please see all the pictures below! As we near the end of the school year, please pay attention to the different schedules happening these next two weeks.

This week's announcements:

  • On Monday, 8th graders will be attending a meeting during Advisory to review end of the year information.
  • On Tuesday and Wednesday, we will be on Bell Schedule E-Spring End of Course Exams. 8th graders will be taking their End of Course exams. All students will report to Periods 1 - 3 - 5 on Tuesday for two hour blocks and on Wednesday, students will report to Periods 2 - 4 - 6.
  • This will be the last week of after school tutoring.
  • There is no Fun Friday this Friday, please use Advisory time to read, to catch up, to do your best to submit assignments so that you can earn the best grade in all of your classes. Please monitor Jupitergrades for the latest information on academic progress. Reach out to teachers for any questions concerning assignments. There are also activities listed below if you would like to explore resources for Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month.
  • Parents, your student may have been pre-assigned to summer school due to earning a failing grade and/or an NCP grade during the first semester classes and/or the current 12-week progress report card from the second semester.
