ALL STUDENTS MUST DRESS SCHOOL APPROPRIATELY
Monday- 6th-11th grades Fairy Tales! Wear your best fairy tale attire (NO TOY/PROP WEAPONS OR STAFFS). SENIORS dress as ROYALTY, as the Royals of this school dress in your best regal attire!
Tuesday- Tacky Tourists, dress up in your best tourist attire
Wednesday- Wild West Wednesday, dress in your best Wild West attire (NO TOY/PROP WEAPONS)!
Thursday- 6th-11th grade Tie Dye, wear your best TIE DYE Attire. SENIORS dress as Senior Citizens, this means dress as what you would look like at 70 years and older (SCHOOL APPROPRIATE)!
Friday- Hawaiian/ Beach theme, Dress up in your best beach gear for the high school only PEP RALLY!!! (even though this pep rally is for high school students, middle school students will also have pep rally's this year - look for those announcements)
1. Try dropping off high school students at the bottom level of the school (along the football field)
2. You can drop off earlier. The buildings open at 8:00 am
3. Identify a school side sidewalk drop off
These are just a few ideas to help lessen your drop-off time.
All attendance recovery time will take place in the high school cafeteria. Students can come any day to complete their required hours. On Saturdays, the only entrance/exit that can be used is the high school auditorium entrance. The last date to make up attendance for last semester will be Saturday, September 25th.
If you believe that the absences were unavoidable due to extenuating circumstances, you can complete an attendance petition for the attendance committee to consider waiving the absences and granting credit. This form will be included in the letter, but if you need another one, you can contact anyone in the school office and they will email a copy to you.
If you have any questions about this, you can contact your child's assistant principal:
8th/9th Grade: Mr. Adams at firstname.lastname@example.org
10th/11th Grade: Mrs. Schwalls at email@example.com
12th: Mrs. Mason at firstname.lastname@example.org
Senior pictures are Sept 1 and Sept 2 through Social Studies classes. Girls will need to wear a spaghetti strapped tank top and boys will need a solid white t-shirt.
You will receive an emailed proof from Prestige. From that you will chose one picture for the yearbook . You will also be able to order others if you wish.
