STAY UPDATED: Tri-County is now broadcasting updates on school-related events/news via Twitter. Please follow us at @TCPenguinNews.
NOTEWORTHY NEWS: This year, will continue holding our quarterly class meetings with students in grades 7-12, 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.
Through the combined efforts of many, students in grades 7-12 of our school accomplished a whopping 51.9% reduction in failing semester grades during the 2013-2014 school year (with respect to the 2012-2013 school year). THIS IS AN AMAZING STATISTIC THAT WE INTEND TO BUILD EVEN FURTHER UPON DURING THE 2014-2015 SCHOOL YEAR!
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.
