LIBRARY FUNDRAISER

Bronco parents, the library needs YOUR STUDENTS to help us update our space! And boy do we have just the way for your students to do it! We have put up our Bronco tree and now we need all of our Broncos to come down and get their pictures taken to decorate it! We are taking pictures in the library before or after school in our one-of-a-kind photo booth. We have lots of fun and funny props for you to use! Your student might even see themselves on the big screens across campus! All of the money raised will go directly to updating the library to make it a better space for your Bronco!

HOME ACCESS CENTER FYI

Ever wonder when you are viewing your students grades what all those different letters represent in the teacher gradebook?


This is what it means:



  • 0 for students that cannot make up assignment
  • 1 for students that work is incomplete, potentially turn into a 0 or a 50 (usually going through LWLD)
  • X for students that are exempt from assignment (this does not affect average)
  • Z for students that were absent and can get full credit (averages as a 0)

ATTENDANCE HAS BENEFITS

Semester Exams are coming up after winter break and if your student has excellent attendance they can earn exam exemptions for the first semester.


Students may earn exam exemptions according to the following schedule.


0 Absences = 2 exam exemptions

1-2 Absences = 1 exam exemption
