PTSA Events for the Week
We would like to invite all parents and guardians of Continentals to join us in two events next Monday, September 16.
First, from 7:45-8:30 AM, we will have a PTSA meeting and coffee chat with Mrs. Branson in the media center.
In the evening, from 6-7:00PM, we will have a family engagement event to help parents learn about their student's chromebooks, RDS, and google classroom. Please bring your child's chromebook with you. This, too, will be held in the media center.
Please plan to park in the parking lot in the back of the gym to participate in these events and enter Door 10 off of the Rotherwood circle drive.
We hope to see you there

We will continue meeting with students individually regarding Citizenship this week. Citizenship includes points for grades, growth (based on last quarter GPA), Extracurricular Activities, and Behavior. Students will need to have 13 total points in order to have Citizenship. You can check RDS Parent Access, linked below, in order to keep up with your child's Citizenship Points. If you click on the class, you can see how many points your child has for each category. If you have questions about how it's calculated, a detailed explanation is linked in the Student and Teacher Handbook also on the newsletter.
Students will need to have 13 points in order to wear Spirit Wear on Friday and receive their snack at lunch periods. Please contact your child's homeroom teacher if you have any questions.
