MASSEY HILL MAGIC
News and Updates
From the desk of the Principal
We are well on our way to a whirlwind of a finish. Mid-terms and parent-teacher conferences are over and the final push to a successful semester looms. I would like to encourage you all to make sure your students take advantage of tutoring opportunities. Any areas of concern are normally addressed by contacting the teacher and allowing your student to attend tutoring. We are planning several events to end the semester and celebrate with our students. Thanks for all your support during our Spirit Week and Homecoming Dance. Support our PTA and be eligible for 2 graduation tickets. Other opportunities are available.
Freshmen parents can help with the success of their students by requiring and monitoring their homework. Most teachers have assignments posted in google classroom. Please assist your student with adjusting to the demands of the 4x4 schedule. Homework is required.
Tutoring is offered by each department. Students can get specific days of the week from their teachers. If your student has a 65 or below, tutoring is recommended and encouraged. The first step to assisting your student is to require them to attend tutoring. Teachers are giving freely of their time at least one afternoon per week to help.

REMINDER: We will not use the designation valedictorian and salutatorian at graduation for the graduates of 2021.

So much to do in a short time is the phrase of the day. Parents encourage your senior to move forward on their SENIOR PROJECT. All items are due November 30, 2018. Time moves fast and seniors have volunteer hours, research papers and a presentation. Seniors will need your help with time management. Turn off those TV's, Phones, games and make sure your senior completes this project. Massey Hill does NOT issue diplomas to students who do not complete the graduation project. Check to make sure your senior has completed their proposal, liability and honor statement, mentor form and some community service. Help them stay on track. Each senior was sent an email with the requirements and a timeline. Presentations are in December.
Senior Parent meetings are required for tickets to graduation. The first meeting will be held in January and parents will be notified. All questions and information about graduation will be answered at this meeting.
