Week of January 30th-February 3rd

💘 Getting in the Mood 💘

DOJO points--Students will shop online on Friday!!

Points accumulated so far by students in all classes will be available for purchase of items in the DOJO store. Students will have an online order form to choose how they would like to spend their points or save for future or bigger purchases.

Students will not see new points in DOJO this week!! DOJO points will be entered in DOJO beginning on February 6th!!!
Current points are downloaded for the Dojo Store and we will zero out points so students are only seeing new earnings. Any unspent points will be written and given to students when they receive their purchases. Those points will be kept in the spreadsheet not in DOJO.

Love the Bus Week

Stay tuned as we will be Loving on our Transportation department in February. Please consider joining us in celebrating their hard work and commitment to getting our students to school and home safely.


Students will or have had goals set with them for Winter MAP testing. These assessments help drive instruction and give us trends and patterns to grow each student. Please ask your child what their goal is for MAP. MAP testing will be on Tuesday and Wednesday so please be sure students are in attendance and on time.

2nd Semester and 3rd quarter---Important Info--There are adjustments to previous communication

  • New encores for students in semester classes-New schedules will be given in Homeroom/Success block and teachers will go over with students which classes they attend. If there are schedule errors teachers will email counselor and admin team for adjustments to be made prior to encore time. There will not be any schedule changes due to not wanting a specific encore as classes are set up based on encore choices made during registration when students listed their top 6 class options.
