2022 BOND INFORMATION
PARENT ADVISORY COMMITTEE
In light of that knowledge, I would like to make every effort to more actively involve our students and parents in the planning process here within the district. There are several initiatives that will unfold this spring including our Graduate Profile and the development of our Academic Pathways, and in order to complete them, we need to hear from our students and their parents. Therefore, as mentioned in The Sting, I will be creating a District Parent Advisory Committee and a District Student Advisory Committee. The Student Committee will meet on one Wednesday a month during the day and will include several smaller groups combined by grade level. The Parent Committee will have its first meeting on Thursday, April 14th in the High School Media Center at 5:30 pm.
If you are interested in joining the Advisory Committee, please complete the form below. If you have any questions please feel free to email me.
YELLOWJACKET OF THE WEEK
Check out our latest group of YellowJackets of the Week; these Jackets all exemplify the trait of accountability!
If you are an accountable person/you exemplify accountability it means that you take responsibility for your own behavior and actions. Everyone needs to be responsible for their actions (kids and adults!)... this means not making excuses for your behavior or refusing to take responsibility when something goes wrong or doesn’t happen. We all mess up sometimes...but the important part is not that we stop making mistakes altogether, it’s that we learn to take responsibility for our actions, behavior, and mistakes.
