Hello Junior Titan Families, This is Renee Lama with a school update
Hercules Police would like to remind parents and students that they must wear helmets with scooters, skateboards, and bikes - Safety first. Please also remember, the community places such as MacDonald’s and the public library are not places for free childcare. These locations have notified me of my student misbehaviors. Please speak with your children about being productive citizens.
Our first coffee with the principal morning will be this Thursday, September 7 beginning at 9:00 in room 513. It is a time for you to come out and meet other parents, hear updated information and ask lots of questions.
There is one parent vacancy on the SSC. The SSC is the school advisory group that allocates our school budgets. If you are interested, please let us know by September 11. I will provide you with a declaration to run. The election ballots will be published on September 14 and last through the 15. We will publish the results on September 18.
We really need an updated emergency card from all of our students. At this time, we have 100 outstanding cards. If you haven’t returned a card, please send it as soon as possible. Students who have not submitted cards received a new card on Thursday. It’s important we get 100% compliance.
We will be balancing schedules this week. The changes will impact all grades, but the major class shifts will happen to accommodate the addition of new 8th grade classes. These changes will lower the class sizes. Thank you to all the parents and students in advance for your patience.
Back to School Night will be happening on September 14. Back to School night is a minimum day.
The first PTA general meeting will be a pot luck held on September 20 in the cafeteria beginning at 6:00 p.m. If you are interested in joining or would like to hold an office joins us then. Remember, students should be reading each night for a minimum of 20 minutes and practicing their multiplication facts if they aren’t yet memorized. Have a wonderful day and stay Titan strong.
