From the Principal's Desk

Bulldog Families,

I would like to start out by sharing that in the first quarter we had 235 students that received Honor Roll (3.0-3.49) and 432 students that received Merit Honor Roll (3.5-or higher). That is 667 students out of 1228 (54%)that have a 3.0 or higher. We also have 77 students that have perfect attendance for this year. This is awesome!

As we start our second semester this is a fresh start for everyone to continue doing great work or to have a better quarter than their first one. There are supports for students to get the extra help if they need it but they will have to put in the work and ask for the help. Their teachers are available to reteach a standard that they might be struggling with or to offer correctives on a test they did not do as well as they had hoped. Please encourage your student to ask for help if they needed it

Please feel free to reach out to teachers, guidance counselors and administration anytime we can assist you or answer a question.

State testing

Testing is Right Around the Corner!!

As we plan ahead for students to participate in upcoming state assessments, please be sure your student takes the following steps to prepare for success: (please help us remind them)

*Come to school well rested

*Eat breakfast either at home or at school

*Turn your laptop completely off at night (not just on sleep mode)

*Be sure your laptop is fully charged

*Bring corded earbuds from home if you choose to wear them during the test

*Be prepared to do your best and try your hardest

*When provided the opportunity by your teacher, take the practice test seriously and do your best to answer the questions accurately. Pay attention to the types of questions being asked of you.

*Do not rush through the test and review your answers before submitting

The Fall/Winter State Assessments are as follows and will take place in students' regularly scheduled classes.

MCAP ENG 10: December 5th - December 8th

HSA Government: January 3rd - January 6th

MCAP Algebra I: January 3rd - January 6th

MCAP Algebra II / Geometry: January 9th - January 12th

LS MISA: January 9th - January 12th

Only students who are currently enrolled in English 10, Government, Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, and Biology will be participating in these assessments UNLESS your student needs to make-up the assessment from a previous year or still needs to participate in the assessment for graduation. Your student will be notified if they fit into this category of test takers.

Please feel free to reach out to Mrs. Adams at NCHS if you have any questions about any of these assessments. (410) 479-2332

Students currently taking dual enrollment courses at Chesapeake Community College

Attention Caroline County Public Schools families with a child currently taking dual enrollment courses at Chesapeake Community College. Based upon a recent change in a Maryland statute, families of students taking approved courses through dual enrollment are no longer responsible for the tuition costs for the Fall and Spring semesters of 2022-2023 school year. Caroline County Public Schools is working with Chesapeake Community College to direct all tuition bills to us instead of to students and families. In the coming weeks, Chesapeake Community College will initiate a refund to any families who have already paid tuition for this semester. Our respective finance teams are working to ensure that dual enrollment students' tuition costs are satisfied. Please communicate with your child's school counselor with any questions or requests for further information.
Thank you.
