Weekly Update - Week of November 07, 2022
Halfway Done with First Semester!
Good afternoon, Blackhawks! It is hard to believe that next week is the last week of the marking period. While this does not mean as much for our online learners as it does for our in person students, it does make for a useful and important check point in the semester. At this point, students should be 50% complete in all of their classes. If they are not, they are behind pace for completion by the end of the semester, January 26. Progress reports were pushed out to students, parents, and coaches today. Please be sure to look over your student's performance and make any necessary changes. If you find that your student is behind, it can be helpful to sit down with each class and set a daily work/completion goal in order to complete all assignments by the deadline. If you need help in doing this, please reach out to the office at 248-627-1820 or contact the instructors.
This coming Tuesday is Election Day. School will be closed to in person students; however, online students can still work. Please keep in mind if you do plan on working, that in person Brandon staff may not be available, as we will be in training all day.
Keep working hard on your classes and communicating with your instructors and Mr. Belluomo consistently. Remember, don't wait until the end of the semester to ask for help if you are struggling. As always, contact the office.

Reminder of Expectations
- Expect your student to work for roughly 45-60 minutes per day, per course
- By now, you should have been reached out to by a counselor regarding your course progress. These will happen once a week. It is extremely important that you respond to communication. Please note that the student needs to respond and be in communication, not just the parent(s).
- Your main point of contact for content specific questions is your course instructor. If you need help doing so, don't hesitate to reach out to us at 248-627-1820.
