Happy New Year

I want to take this opportunity to wish all of you a happy and healthy new year. I hope your holiday was relaxing and filled with memories to cherish with family and friends. We are excited to begin the 2nd semester and anticipate a very busy spring.

Tuesday, January 5

All students will report to homeroom at 7:55 a.m. During this time, students will receive a copy of their schedule for the 2nd semester. Please check your box for schedules.

Report Cards

Grades will be processed and verified as soon as possible and report cards will be sent electronically by January 7. We will try to get them out on Wednesday, but because this is a new process for us, I have told parents that they would be out no later than Thursday. Your students will have Tuesday, and Wednesday to make-up any exams that they missed. Since grades are due at midnight today, you will need to give them in "I" for incomplete for now. Update their grades as they complete their exams.

Planning Ahead

We will begin After School Tutorial on January 18. Please be thinking about the students that need to attend.
