Greetings Warriors!

Fall Break is just around the corner, scheduled from October 9th to October 13th. This break provides a valuable opportunity for both students and parents to take a well-deserved pause from the academic routine and focus on rest, relaxation, and resetting for the coming weeks of learning.

Fall Break serves as a crucial time to rejuvenate, recharge, and spend quality moments with family and friends. We encourage everyone to make the most of this break by engaging in activities that bring joy and refreshment. Whether it's enjoying the beauty of nature, reading a book, pursuing a hobby, or simply taking time to reflect, we hope you find ways to recharge your energy and spirit.

As we approach the second half of the semester, we look forward to your return on October 16th, with renewed enthusiasm and a commitment to academic excellence. Your dedication and hard work contribute significantly to our campus's success, and we believe that you'll come back ready to lead our school community toward even greater achievements.

During this Fall Break, remember to prioritize self-care, spend quality time with loved ones, and embrace the opportunity to reset your mind and spirit. We believe that this break will not only benefit your well-being but also enhance your overall academic performance.

Thank you for your continued support and dedication to our school's mission.

Enjoy your Fall Break, and we can't wait to see you back, refreshed and ready for new academic opportunities.

Enjoy Your Break!



Thank you all for another great week of school. We have 5 days before our Fall Holiday Break, 10/9-13, 2023. Parents, we really need you to reiterate to your scholars the importance of focusing on instruction this week and practicing positivity on purpose.

Last week, we had a lot of unwanted activities at the gas station across the street that caused disruptions on our campus. I cannot express how important it is for your car riders to remain on campus and for you to wait patiently to drive through the car rider line. We know that safety may not be convenient, but it is better to stay safe than to have your scholar at a non-school sanctioned location and engage, voluntarily or involuntarily, in behaviors that you do not approve. Help us keep our students safe!

We are looking forward to our scholars working really hard this week in preparation for their upcoming Fall Break.

Principal Shelby-King, Ph.D.

Greeting Parents/Guardians:

This is to inform you that all students must meet the 90% attendance requirement outlined by the state, which means they may not exceed nine excused or unexcused absences per semester for the 2023-2024 school year.

In an attempt to ensure your scholar earns credit for the classes he/she has passed, we are offering your scholar an opportunity to recover the time by taking advantage of the following options:

After-School Credit Recovery (Attendance students may attend Tuesday/Thursday):

Time: 4:40 pm-5:40 pm Credit: 1 tutorial= 2 school days Mathia (MUST provide proof of completion)

If your scholar cannot attend after-school sessions, he/she MUST complete an online assignment(s) through Mathia and complete 3 workspaces.

Students may complete this assignment after school or over the weekend. Documentation MUST be submitted (screenshot of completion). Credit: 15 workspaces= 5 school days Amplify Reading TX: 6-8 (MUST provide proof of completion) .
