Continental Family -

Friday afternoon, we held an academic recognition program to recognize any student that improved their GPA from first grading period to second grading period, honor roll students and distinguished honor roll. Many students received certificates for their efforts. We continue to encourage students to be better today than they were yesterday and to be better tomorrow than they were today. Also this week, students will begin to meet in their WIN groups to get additional instruction in Math and English. Our journey to a B in three, or less continues.

We Are A.R.M.Y. Strong!!

Each day, we say the Continental Creed: "As a member of the Continental Army, I promise to be Accountable, Respectful, Motivated to Learn, and do mY best." We also remind students of our school goal of achieving a letter grade of a B in three years or less....Students will hear us say "Are you helping us get to a B in 3?" If we all focus on being ARMY Strong every day, we will reach this goal!
