Laker Compass, High School Updates
September 9, 2022
Welcome to the Laker Compass, a Weekly Communication for High School Parents
It's been a wonderful First Four Days for students and staff. The students have had time to build relationships, connect with old friends, meet new friends, and get ready for another school year! Next week students will have a normal school schedule, dive into learning, and begin focusing on their first semester! As parents we ask that you are checking Powerschool each week to celebrate successes and check on areas that need support! Please contact your student's teacher for any questions related to the course.
