WAAG

Week at a Glance

November 14 - November 18

We are sending out a Week at a Glance (WAAG) as a means to inform students and parents of the upcoming important events and announcements for the week. For general information, please visit our website at http://moh.sweetwaterschools.org/

Message from the Principal - Mr. Zumstein

Greetings Aztecs!


One week until our Thanksgiving Break. This is a great time to check in with students on their academic standing. Jupiter is our most up to date grading platform. By staying connected through Jupiter you can know which classes your child may need support in. Sometimes it's just a gentle reminder, other situations may call for demanding your student to connect with their teacher and or counselor to come up with a plan. Ultimately grades are a students responsibility but we as parents need to hold them accountable. Let's all take this week to encourage students to be proactive so they can best enjoy the break ahead.


We are Aztecs!

Tardy Intervention Plan - Be On Time, All The Time

This message is to remind you to "Be on time, all the time!" Why? Because "We are Aztecs"


Students~ At our tardy sweep last week, 59 students were late to 4th period. Please make sure you are leaving for your next class immediately after your previous class. Let's be on time.


Students, as Aztecs, we expect you to get to class on time and be ready to learn by the time the tardy bell rings. Parents, we ask that you team up with us and discuss with your children the expectation of being on time. As a Montgomery community let us work together to communicate the importance of being on time. “We are Aztecs!”

Attendance Information

Students can clear absences and tardies by attending Saturday School. Students are placed on the non-privilege list when they have eight full day absences or eleven tardies. The non-privilege list prevents students from attending events like Homecoming or Grad Nite.
