Important Points for Parents
I wanted to make sure everyone received the separate email about the change in the way we are using our FLEX period. Monday and Tuesday will be Sustained Silent Reading, while Thursday and Friday will be spent on the student's individual Exact Path. Wednesday will be a free FLEX period for students to choose to what to work on, get help in, or study. Please reference the email for more specific details.
Parents, if your child is experiencing COVID-like symptoms or waiting results of a COVID test please contact the school and let us know why they are absent. This will help the district and school with contact tracing and management of COVID protocols.
I would like to thank everyone for logging on to parent portal last week to check on their child's midterm grade. Please continue to monitor that as we move towards the end of the first quarter. Our administration and guidance department are going to begin meeting with students who are struggling and not completing assignments in an effort to help the students.
Here is the link to Parent Portal.
The 8th grade lost their playoff game on Monday night in a hard-fought match against Indian Land. We are so proud of the girls. They fought hard and represented our school with PRIDE!!! Congratulation Ladies!!! Proud of you!
Banner Bound!!! The 7th grade volleyball team won the Conference Championship Wednesday night when they defeated Indian Land Middle School in a tight three set match. The championship game was back and forth and extremely intense, but the girls persevered and held strong!
Congratulations Ladies! We are so proud of you!
We Are The Champions!!!

Basketball Tryouts Are Coming!!!
The boys will be trying out for basketball the following week on November 9th, 10th, and 11th from 3:30 - 5:30.
There is a chance that football will still be going on that week. Any football player that would like to try out for the basketball team will be able to tryout once the football season is over. No worries!
Everyone interested in trying out must have an up-to-date physical uploaded onto PlanetHS prior to them being able to tryout. Please go to the athletic webpage for further instructions on how to upload. Athletes only need one physical per school year. If they are playing football, volleyball, dance, or cheer, then they are already covered to try out for basketball.
Good luck to everyone interested!
