The Storm Forecast

May 22, 2023

Dear students & families

We have made it to the end of the school year.

Thank you all for entrusting your children to us and for making us a part of your family.

This inaugural year was not without its share of challenges and surprises, but it did allow us to build a community, get to know your children, and create a special place where your student is cared about.

Thank you for all of your support, kind and uplifting words, tokens of appreciation, and collaboration with our team.

We can't wait to greet you back for the 2023-2024 school year in our new building.

Throughout the summer I will be posting updates and news via the usual channels- ParentSquare, social media, website, emails and text alerts. I hope all of you have a fun and restful summer. We will see you next year!

Much love,

Mrs. Knapp

Juniors needing assessments

Parents of Juniors-

If your student still has not passed the Reading exam or the Algebra 1 end of course exam, they must do so in order to graduate.

Students may meet the score requirements through passing scores on the SAT or the ACT.

Concordancy scores:

SAT Reading: 480

SAT Math: 420
ACT Reading: 18

ACT Math: 16

Both the SAT and the ACT have published testing dates for 2023-2024. Please go to their websites to register for a test date.

Please make sure that your student is practicing for these exams in order to maximize their chances to acheive the required scores. Their IXL account provides ACT and SAT test practice they can access 24/7.

We have seen that the students who faithfully and consistently used IXL increased and/or passed their exams.

Failure to earn the required test scores will result in the student not graduating from high school.

Class of 2024- time for your Senior Crowns!

Juniors- it is time to start creating your Senior crowns!

Crowns will be distributed by Mrs. Pangle on Monday. You must return your completed crown by Thursday. Get creative and go all out!

Senior crowning will take place on Friday.

School policy reminders

As we go into the 2nd half of the school year, here are some school policy reminders:

Cell phones:

Students may not have cell phones out at any point during the day with the exception of breakfast and lunch. The use of cell phones during breakfast and lunch is a privilege and it can be revoked if abused. This includes ear buds.


Students get 3 "free" tardies each quarter. After the 3rd tardy, students will begin to receive disciplinary consequences. This is for both tardies to school and to class. Tardies will reset each quarter.

Uniform infractions:

Students must be in full uniform every day. Failure to be in full uniform will result in the student being sent to the office to get into appropriate uniform dress.

Don't be a fool at the end of school!

We are down to the last two weeks of school. It's important to remember that, while we are all excited about summer, we must keep school safety and appropriateness all the way through the last day of school.

Parents- please help us by speaking with your student about appropriate school behavior, use of social media, not bringing prohibited items to school, etc... We want the last 2 weeks to be safe, go smoothly, and have positive memories for all.

Any students who violate the code of conduct, exhibit inappropriate behaviors or bring prohibited items to school will be disciplined. Severe discipline infractions may involve police and/or suspensions that go into the next school year.

Let's have a smooth and safe closing to the school year.

Reminder regarding deliveries

As a reminder, students are not permitted to order food deliveries (student handbook, page 13). We do have a school lunch program and students may also bring their lunch.

Any deliveries will be held in the office until 3:20.

Summer school 2023

Students who are eligible for summer school will be notified over the next two weeks.

Summer school will be conducted completely online with San Jose Schools teachers who will be monitoring your student's progress. Your student will be responsible for completing all of their coursework by July 21 in order to recouperate the necessary credits and have them posted on their transcripts.

Failure to complete summer school will result in the F grade remaining on the transcript and the student not being on track to graduate.
