First Six Weeks

It is hard to believe that the fist six weeks has come to an end. We are very proud of all of the hard work that students have done. Any and all missing work has to be turned in by Monday in order to be included in this grading period. Report cards will be sent home on Thursday. Remember at InfoSnap registration you elected to receive email versions or printed copies of this information.

Extra Time to Work

Students who need access to wi-fi or extra time to complete work can come to the STEM classrooms. We have set aside time before and after school for students to work in our rooms. STEM rooms are open: (mornings 7:30-8:00, afternoons 3:30-4:00)

Mon./ Wed./ Fri. mornings: Mrs. Nutt's room

Tues. and Thurs. mornings: Mrs. Monson's room

Mon./Wed. afternoon: Mr. Mercer's room

Tues./Thurs. afternoon: Mrs. Dozier's room


Students can also attend the Student Achievement Class (SAC) held each morning in the lecture hall from 7:00-7:45. Students will have access to wi-fi and teachers to assist in understanding the content. Students will need to be ready to enter the building at 7:00.

STEM Bucks

In an effort to recognize students who are on-task, helpful, kind and working hard the STEM teachers will be passing out STEM Bucks. These can be saved by students and traded for incentives in class. Incentives range from: 5 points on a daily assignment to lunch with the STEM teacher of their choice. We are excited to recognize their efforts!
