Message From The Principal
As you can see from the calendar below we have about two and a half weeks before Semester 1 grades and credits are finalized.
The focus on the calendar is because we have seen that there are many students who are currently failing one or more courses. Every course that is failed this semester means one more class that must be repeated before your student can graduate. And if your son/daughter is a senior and planning to graduate this coming June then any classes not passed right now could put a FULL STOP on that diploma ceremony!
And, of course, we all want the same thing: to be at that graduation ceremony and celebrate the achievements of our students!!
Our last day of school for semester 1 (and for the “5th Credit” period) is Wednesday, December 21st. Our hope is that our students are working on any missing assignments so they can improve their grades and get as many credits as possible! Earned credits mean a straightforward path towards graduation and the all-important diploma.
We are not just “hoping” that students are focused on getting their credits. We are talking with your kids about it, and reminding them of what they need to do! Please check Infinite Campus to see how your student is doing in terms of grades. If possible (and if applicable), have a conversation with him/her to see how they plan to catch up during the last two and half weeks of semester 1. December 21st is the deadline!
If you have any questions about the progress of your student (and whether they’re on track to graduate) please give us a call! We’re here to help!
STUDENT OF THE MONTH
Congratulations to Carlos Mendez
Carlos was the lucky winner last week!! Mr. Gonzalez had a contest for any student who completed a full course in credit recovery. The students name went into a drawing to win a longboard.

Teenage years are a critical time when guys and girls make choices that affect the rest of their lives. The empowerment groups provide a safe place where teens can talk about what is really going on in their lives, and a community of mentors and peers who listen, believe in them and help them make better choices. This approach gives teens permission to tell the truth about the challenges all teens face, make their own decisions on how to deal with those challenges, and begin to take responsibility for their choices and the consequences of their actions. It also provided tools needed to navigate through the teen years and transition positively into adulthood.
