Update - Student Group Pop-in Celebrations for Honor Roll
Update: Due to an unanticipated change in the Write Score Assessment window which will now be Jan. 23-25, we will postpone our Honor Roll Celebration to Friday, January 27th to ensure students can attend! We are excited to have honor roll students pop in to the cafeteria for a brief and somewhat informal celebration of honor roll. Honor Roll will recognize all students achieving ALL A’s in ALL content areas as well as all students achieving ALL A’s and B’s in ALL content areas.
Parents, we share this information with you for awareness, but this ceremony - while special - isn’t one we encourage parents taking time off of work or busy schedules to attend.
