This Week at SBHS
May 26-29, 2020
Final Grades Updates
Here are a few important dates for the end of the year:
- June 4th - last instructional day for Seniors
- June 7th - final grades based on Quarters 1-3 posted in ParentVue/StudentVue
- June 10th - last instructional day for all students
- June 12th - last day for grade adjustments based on Quarter 4 data
- June 15th - Last day for families to request to change a final grade to "Pass"
- June 20th - Final report cards posted
For the 2019-2020 school year, seniors and rising seniors (current juniors) who elect to convert a final grade to a P will be excluded from rank during their senior year. Families of students in grades 6-12 who are enrolled in a high school course should consider the option to convert a final grade from A+ through D- to P carefully as it impacts GPA, rank, NCAA eligibility, Thomas Jefferson High School admissions, Academies of Loudoun admissions, and college entrance evaluations. LCPS asks that families contact an admissions officer at their child’s respective post-high school institution for more information.
Please review the Grading, Credits, and GPA Page for more detail or contact your school counselor if you have questions.
Save the Date - June 8th and 9th End of Year Collection
On June 8th and 9th, families will be able to pick up and drop off items at Stone Bridge as we wrap up the year. Everyone will remain in their cars and move through a series of stations with proper social distancing practices in place. Please start collecting items now that you need to return, such as library books, textbooks, Chromebooks (seniors and those leaving LCPS only), team uniforms, instruments, concert attire, and music. We will also be distributing items left in the school building, including: contents from all school lockers, medications, summer reading books, honor cords, team pictures, art portfolios, and more.
Graduation attire and Driver's Ed cards have been mailed directly to families. Diplomas will be available at a later time after grades have been finalized.
Library Book Checkout Available for Summer Reading
Students: Have you run out of reading material at home? Were you in the middle of a series when we had to stay home? The library is here to help! Current freshmen, sophomores and juniors can request summer reading from your SBHS library, and we will get your request ready for the end-of-the-year pick-up and drop-off. Fill out this request form. Please note that some items may not be available because they are checked out or being cleaned. Here is the link to our catalog. The tentative due date will be September 30, 2020. Happy reading!

Computer Math Elective
As you complete your registration for classes, consider taking Computer Math / Introduction to Programming. Computer Math is an introductory course on programming in Java, which is the same language used in AP Computer Science. In Computer Math, you will learn how to guide a virtual robot through a digital map to complete different creative tasks, learn the basics of graphics, animation, and game design and create your own video game. Computer Science forms a large job market with one of the highest pay rates in any of the STEAM disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math). Computer Math could be your introduction to this lucrative field. Please see the flyer for more information.
