UIL and SKOLAR Time
This week we kicked off the 2017-2018 UIL Academics practice season. Students began meeting with their UIL coaches during SKOLAR time. Students who are participating in more than one event will rotate through to their various practices on a weekly basis. We are very proud of the work that these students are doing, and we invite you all to join us at the District UIL Meet in at Florence Middle School on January 26th to see them in action!
Semester Exam Schedule
December 12 - Periods 2 & 6
December 13 - Periods 3 & 7
December 14 - Periods 4 & 8
IF your child will be missing semester exams for any reason, they will be able to take them upon return in January. Our semester actually ends January 12, so there will be time to get the exam reviewed and completed without having to take it early. If your final is performance based, you are still required to perform at the scheduled time.
