Ninth Grade News
August 24, 2020
We had an AMAZING start to the school year! The students were so wonderful and it was great to have them both in the building and on our screens. We loved seeing their smiles (or smiling eyes at it may apply) and enthusiasm to be back to school. They have done so well with navigating their schedules and communicating their technology needs. Parents - we appreciate your help and support more than you know! You all are rockstars, too! We especially appreciate your understanding and patient communication as we navigate new technologies together. The teachers have been working hard to add in the virtual teaching format along with planning and delivering in-person instruction in a new world with COVID considerations. Your kindness and grace have touched us all as we are calibrating to these new systems. We are looking forward to another great week together!

In order to ensure maximum space in the dining hall for students, we assign lunch periods based upon fourth-period class size. As student and teacher schedules are adjusted and students enroll/withdraw, we have made lunch assignment adjustments in order to keep the two lunch periods balanced. The following lunch assignment changes will take place beginning Monday, August 24.
Students in the following fourth-period classes are assigned the corresponding lunch period:
Mr. Robertson - A Lunch
Ms. Lewis - A Lunch
Ms. Martinez - A Lunch
Ms. Liddell - A Lunch
Ms. Diaz - B Lunch
Please send a water bottle to school with your student
In addition to the water that students bring from home, students may also purchase water from the cafeteria before 1st period, before 3rd period, and during lunch.
Elective supply lists will be distributed to students on the first day of school.
