Message from the Principal 💛
It was so great to see your beautiful faces on campus this week! I hope you all have finally adjusted to the early morning wake-ups and getting back to learning! We have only 10 school days remaining until the next Progress Report, so there are some questions I'd like to ask you:
- Have you checked your grades on Jupiter recently?
- How many missing assignments do you have?
- Which of your classes do you need the most support with?
- Are you going to attend Tutoring this week?
- Are you going to attend Saturday Academy this Saturday?
The answers to those questions will determine your next steps. I encourage you to buckle down and do what it takes to steer your ship in the right direction. Reach out to your teachers, counselors, or admin if you are not sure how!
Shout out to our JV and Varsity Basketball teams and our Softball team on their victories this past Saturday!! 🏀🤗🥎
I'm excited for Music Monday tomorrow...it has been a few weeks! 🎶 Is your Advisory going to win?
Let's make it a great week, Vikings!!
