NOTEWORTHY NEWS: This year, we are taking on several new initiatives with our students in grades 7-12. Among these endeavors are quarterly class meetings, at which various grade-specific topics are discussed, including the establishment of academic goals for each quarter. Each class is being challenged to set a goal for a targeted minimum percentage of its members who will earn all passing grades for the quarter. The students are provided with pertinent data from their most recently completed grading period, and then use that information to create a goal that poses a challenge for improvement…but that is also realistically attainable.
Our intent is to not only see our classes meet these goals each quarter, but to also see them improve upon them through each quarter as the school year progresses – which would be absolutely amazing.
POLICY REMINDER TO PARENTS OF OUR SENIORS: During EACH semester of their senior year, students must not be absent (excused or unexcused) from school for more than 80 class periods (10 school days) in order to participate in the graduation ceremony.
