Keeping the Crew up to Date! Volume 2 Issue 12 - 11/6/22

Greetings Clipper Nation!

Our students did a great job transitioning from term 1 to term 2. Students have been reminded on the morning announcements to make sure they are on time to class and to put in every effort to start the term strong.

Report Cards will go live on Monday. The directions on how to view reports through the family portal are in the message. Students who have failed due to attendance will have their report cards mailed home.

This message includes information through November 22nd. Your next parent message will be on November 27th.

Late to School

If you know your student will be late for school, please send them with a note so we can excuse their lateness. Students start earning referrals on the fourth lateness to school.


Just a reminder that parents can excuse up 5 days absences for the year. Beyond those days 5 days documentation for doctors, etc. need to be provided.

Please check your email and spam folder for emails from us about attendance.

College Essay Support

We have good news for seniors who are working on their college essays! Through the Title IV grant, Ms. Cahall and Mrs. Taylor will be available to review your college essays and provide feedback starting on Monday, October 3rd – Saturday, December 31st.

Here’s how it works: You will need to email the teacher you would like to work with letting them know you would like for them to review your essay. They will then send you information so that you can upload your essay, the writing prompt or question that you are responding to along with any questions or comments about the essay you have sent them. The teacher will add you in an assignment on Google Classroom where all communication about your essay will occur.

Contact information for Participating Teachers:

Mrs. Chelsea Taylor:

Ms. Jennifer Cahall:

Of course if there is another teacher you would like to have review your essays you are welcome to contact them, but Mrs. Taylor and Ms. Cahall are the teachers that are part of this project. They are looking forward to reading your essays and supporting you through this process!

How to Stay in the Know?

The best way to stay in the know is to make sure we have accurate information on file. Please look over all the information on the Student Personal Data and Enrollment Information Form as this is the information we currently have on file for you. Make any corrections to the form in blue. If you need additional space for emergency contact use a separate sheet of paper. Sign the back of the form and return it to the school. If you prefer to fill out a new form you can find a copy on our website.
