MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Hello Eagles! Happy Monday to everyone!


We are off to another great start this week - I appreciate everyone doing their part to make Akins HS the best!


Teachers - please make sure you are creating FIT sessions everyday. We still aren't seeing 100% teacher participation when it comes to sessions available in the FIT portal. We are pushing students to be diligent and sign up for sessions, so we want to make sure they have access to all of their teachers. I've heard nothing but positive things regarding the effectiveness of this time during our school day. I sincerely hope it's making a huge difference for everyone.


Students - please make sure you're using your time wisely. In addition to FIT, we also have Homework Haven in the library after school. Teachers from each subject-area are there, ready to help. The combination of these opportunities should ensure everyone's success.


I hope everyone has a great week and I'll see you all at House Park for our game against Austin High! GO EAGLES!!!


Sincerely,


Brandi Hosack

Principal
