SPIRIT WEEK TRADITIONS HAVE RETURNED!

ADVANCED PLACEMENT UPDATES

If your student is currently enrolled in an AP course, they need to create an account with the College Board. The teachers have shared the "how-to" directions to students in classes and posted information on their Schoology pages. Please check with your student to confirm that they are signed up for each of their courses. The College Board offers many supports such as study tips, videos, review guides, and more.

DUAL CREDIT UPDATES

If students are enrolled in a Dual Credit course, work directly with the teacher. MCC has extended the Fall Deadline to Oct. 11, 2021. If you have questions about the benefits, please the school counselor.

HOME SCHOOL CONTINUED PARTNERSHIP- SHARED PRIDE

Thank you for the tremendous support as we returned to a full campus, 5 days a week. In the previous communication, we shared concern with the TikTok Challenge that focused on the destruction or theft of school property. Unfortunately, we are now aware of a calendar of TikTok Challenges focusing on violence each month of the school year. We continue to work directly with our teachers, school counselors, and social workers to build relationships, promote connection, and focus on kindness and empathy.


Your continued assistance is greatly appreciated. Please continue to support the message that physical violence is not a solution. Students can see an adult in the school for support or submit an anonymous report via the Safe School Helpline.

POSITIVE DIGITAL FOOTPRINT

Another area of continued messaging is around creating a positive digital footprint. Please send reminders to think before posting. The messages and items posted can live on and have been used as part of some job interviews. Here is a website that is a good resource and here is a story by the Democrat and Chronicle about this topic.
