Shout Outs and Celebrations

  • Our wonderful Paras for their kindness and support for our teachers. We all gained a little extra weight this week but it was worth it.
  • Tera and Bill for changing their Chapter 12 assessment to more of an SBA model. For trying a new way to process (grade) the student performance in a manner that includes them and drives valuable discussions. Bill, for using "Group Think" to review. We learn a ton when people take the risk. Thank you.
  • Nic for organizing the Mad City Money event.
  • Frau Lucking for mentoring our new German teacher (Arianna Wirebaugh).
  • Chris Deno for creating the "incomplete" list each Friday.
  • Jordee for his amazing work on the mural outside the tech ed room. If you haven't seen it, go take a look. It will be worth the expended energy.
  • THANK YOU for taking care of your EE responsibilities. We are very close to being done.
  • Professional bus racer - Jordee Reimer

Honest Conversations

Teaching staff... Our end-of-the-year honest conversations will focus on 4 questions.

  1. What are you most proud of this school year?
  2. What is one thing you will focus on for next year?
  3. On what topic, skill or technique would you most like to receive more training (PD)?
  4. How can the HS administration help you?

Please work with Lori to schedule your honest conversation with Kurt.

Consider This...

"It seems to be a law of nature, inflexible and inexorable, that those who will not risk cannot win."

BLT Application Link

Field Trip Information - Please Read

Throughout the district, every field trip must have an "SCC FIELD TRIP STUDENT COST CALCULATOR" form completed. We should have been doing this all year but I messed up and didn't convey that message to you - my apologies. link to form

Th form can be found in the "High School Information" - "Field Trip Information" folders on the Google Drive.

  1. When you open the document it should require you to make a copy. If not, please let me know and make a copy of your own.
  2. Print the document and turn it in with your field trip request form.

If the trip is deemed "non-academic" the students will need to absorb the cost of travel (i.e. a reward trip to Valley Fair) within the fee. We can discuss that when the form is turned in and you can plan accordingly and communicate that information with the students.

HS admin will work with you to determine if the bus costs will be passed on to the students. However, every trip must include this document regardless if it's an academic field trip or not.

Thank you for cooperating with this request.
