General News

Conduct & Work Study

Please keep a close eye on your student's weekly Conduct and Work Study grades. Anything below 100% on the Work Study and Conduct grades means your student is being marked down for behavior issues and/or late work or forgotten supplies. The clipboard goes with the homeroom to the other teachers, so its a good way to monitor how your student is doing in all their classes.


Passwords were handed to students last week. Please sign up for email notifications or get the very easy to use PowerSchool app for your smartphones.

Midterm reports are coming up soon! We do not send anything home for this, but we encourage you to check out your students grade and discuss with them ways to improve their study habits.

Please check Edmodo each night as the teachers are posting what was done each day onto the website. This is a quick and easy way for parents to have more information about what their child is doing during the school day.
