Sky Hawk News for Parents/Guardians

Week of November 9 - 13, 2020

Sky Hawk Families:

Our weekly academic tip is for you to encourage your student to do a weekly grade check on Wednesdays (Early Release Day). They should go through each course to be sure they have all of their assignments submitted, and they should reach out to their teachers if they see any errors. Have them check their upcoming events on their calendars as well!


We are seeing an increase of students watching movies on Netflix, Disney, etc. while they are at home. Please help us by reminding your student they should be logged into their Teams meeting and should be focused on teacher instruction and their assignments. School issued Chromebooks are for academic use only. The guidelines for Chromebook usage are stated in the policy each family signed for when the device was issued.


The in-person students are doing a WONDERFUL job keeping their face masks on all day! We know this is not ideal, but we are so proud of them. Thank you for sending your kids prepared and for helping to keep our school safe and open!

Preliminary eligibility is based on a 3.5 GPA. The following are criteria for becoming a member of this prestigious organization:


  • Academic – students must have and maintain a 3.5 GPA upon and after application. Application for membership will be open each Spring immediately after the Winter Break.
  • · Students must exhibit exceptional service, leadership, character, and citizenship. Additionally, four teachers must recommend interested candidates. Students may choose which teachers from whom they seek recommendations.
