  • From the Principal's Desk: Week of 11/5/18

    Posted by Paul Mansingh on 11/4/2018

    Our academic conversation of the week pertains to Interpersonal Communication. Students need to communicate with their peers with a vocabulary that reflects respect, dignity, and their intelligence. Expressed vocabulary is a learned behavior and if students choose to use poor expressive vocabulary, they will be limited on the depth of knowledge they are able to convey. Too many times we here kids speaking, arguing, roasting, using profanity, and carrying on with little or no awareness of the vocabulary they use. Too many times the tone can be harsh, combative and derogatory in nature.  Intelligence should not be something we turn on or off, it should be something we actively develop throughout our entire life. The words we choose to use in every day conversations need to represent the intelligent individuals that we are with sensitivity and tolerance to the personal differences of everyone around us.

     Here we are in the 2nd quarter already. Do you use PowerSchool to review all completed assignments, review all the grades that have been earned, and double check to make sure that you are doing everything that is required of you to get a C or better in each course. If you find your son or daughter is receiving a sub-par grade, please refer to each course syllabus to make sure that all expectations presented by the teacher are being met. If you find that you have concerns regarding the course syllabus or need further clarification on specifics courses, please reach out to individual teachers

     Yearbooks are currently on sale for $85. Prices will be going up so don’t miss out on reserving yours through the cashier’s window. Dedication pages are still available. A dedication form can be picked up through Ms. Schrampf in room H105. Full page dedications are $150 and half page dedications are $80. Quarter page dedications are also available for $40. Senior quotes need to be turned into Ms. Schrampf by November 16th

     Next Monday, the 12th is Veterans Day Holiday, there will not be school on that day.

    Academic habits continue to be a focus for us. We want all students to be responsible citizens of our school community. That means we expect all students to come to school dressed appropriately with their ID’s visibly hanging around their neck. If a student does not have a photo ID, they will not be allowed into their assigned classroom. Before a student receives a duplicate photo ID, they will need your permission. Each ID costs $3.00 and a lanyard costs $2.00. We do not want your son/daughter to build up excessive fines without your consent. We expect all students to be on time to all their classes, including 1st period class. 1st period starts at 8:20 am and we would like all students to be on campus by 8:10am so they are not late to 1st period class. We will see all of you on campus by 8:10am.
