Keeping the Crew up to Date! Volume 2 Issue 4 - 9/11/22

Big picture

Greetings Clipper Nation!

The Clipper crew and students had a great first week back to school. It was good to have students back in the building. I thought the students did a great job getting through the hallways, used their cell phones, and did well with their hats and hoods. Moving forward, please encourage your student to make sure their bellies are not showing. Students with bellies showing will be encouraged to change or modify their attire to comply with the dress code. If a student is none compliant, they will complete their classwork in an alternative setting.

The last day to request a schedule change is September 15th. To request a schedule change see the directions below.

Starting September 6th through the 16th, students will be participating in the i-Ready Diagnostic during their English class and the Map Growth test during their math class. For more information, see the letter attached to the email portion of the message.

As part of the Clipper Nation, our school is committed to giving back to the community. One of the ways we are giving back is through our Food and Clothing pantry. If you ever find yourself in need, please reach out to us. Information about our pantry and how it reach out is highlighted below. #ClipperNation

Please update and return the Student Data sheets so we can reach out if needed - Back to information:
