Remember This?

The handbook says this about student standing:


To be considered a student in good standing, a student must not be in violation of the attendance policy, have outstanding discipline referrals OR appear on the current F list.

In order to participate in extracurricular events including (but not limited to): dances, field trips, school-sanctioned sports events; a student must be in good standing.

Students in grades 6-12 that are not in good standing will have closed lunch and be required

to sign in daily in the cafeteria.

NWEA Incentive

It's finally here!

We will have our Fall NWEA Incentive Day this Tuesday, November 22. All students will report to their fifth hour class for attendance, then eligible students will report to the gym for a movie. After the movie, students will be able to chat and use the space for activities. Do you have questions? Keep reading - this might answer them!

Q: Who's eligible to attend?

A: HS Students who met three out of four criteria for ALL FOUR NWEA tests.

Q: It's been a while. What was the eligibility criteria?

  1. No rapid guessing
  2. Maintain or increase overall score
  3. No disruptions
  4. Be in attendance on scheduled day of test

Q: How will I know if I'm eligible?

A: Mrs. Clements will email the students who are NOT eligible.

Q: What will I do if I'm not eligible?

A: You'll likely report to one classroom for the afternoon, but you'll have work to do. It will be as close to a 'normal' Tuesday as we can get.

A: I'm not sure yet. Email me your ideas. It has to be school appropriate and accessible from Amazon Prime, Netflix, or Disney +.

Handbook Highlight

Each week, I'll highlight a Student/Parent Handbook policy. What makes it into the WILDCAT ROAR is usually something that I've been dealing with and/or I'm hoping to NOT have to deal with because all of our students and adults are aware of the policy. This week's Handbook Highlight is...


All participants will ride to and from the school activity on the transportation provided by the school. Parents wishing to sign their students out after the event may do so or a request by the parent/guardian in person or phone call and in writing before noon of the activity for which the student to ride home with another adult. This adult must sign the student out and assume responsibility of the student.

Old Business

Parking Spot Painting

The time has come, students!

If you earned a reserved parking spot (21-22 Students of the Month, Field Day Winners - see the list below), you're officially able to begin the painting process! See the Contract below. Printed copies are available in the HS Office.

Spoiler alert:

- There's a $25 deposit this year. You'll get it back after repainting your spot at a day and time to be determined. Materials for this will be provided by the school.


You don't have to be on the list to park at school/drive. These are the students who have earned reserved spots that they may choose to personalize by painting. If you don't have a reserved spot, you can park in the Gravel Lot south of the HS Building or North of the ECC, off of Morgan Street.

2022-23 Reserved Parking Spots

You Know the Rules

We've been in school for 51 days. You know the rules. Follow them.

Here's a quick reference:

- No phone or smart watch use outside of lunch, including between classes.

- No airpods/ear buds

- No vaping

- No food in class

- Don't disrespect staff or students

- Be a nice human

Use the Time You Have


You need to use the restroom between classes, not during class.

I've asked teachers to document when they do allow a student to use the restroom and informed them that your phones need to stay in the classroom when you do go.

Get Charged

There is a charging cart for HS Chromebooks in the HS hallway near Ms. Tristen's office.

If your machine needs to be charged during the day, these are the locations. Do NOT unplug anyone's machine, do NOT mess with anyone else's machine, and do NOT move the carts.

Restricted Area

Students are not to be in the HS Building during lunch.

Permitted areas are the cafeteria and Patio (weather permitting).

If you have lunch money to turn in, please do so before school, at the beginning of lunch, or after school.

Keep It Clean

Heads up: We're noticing excessive trash on the floors and under desks/tables in classrooms. Please throw your trash away in the trash cans provided.

I have no desire to relive the microlockdown of March 2021 (no candy, no sodas, etc. in the building), but I'll go there if students don't manage their trash.
