  • Spartan students begin Again--There is only one moment in the school year where we can truly say, let's start over, and that's this week. The second semester wipes the books clean and gives everyone the opportunity to have a clean slate.  We are excited because this means that everyone has the opportunity to put their New Year's Resolution into practice and figure out how to make those new habits work for them.  We also start the third quarter at the same time, meaning that things like honor roll and eligibity are back in play.  In real terms, of course, the classes themselves remain the same (there are some exceptions, as seniors change over from Economics to American Government) and students will be expected to use the skills and content knowledge from semester one when studying during semester two.  But one of the things that happens for students who have found themselves running behind is that they can be caught up.  For students who have excelled, it's the chance to keep their foot on the gas and build on the momentum they have already been developing. We believe that for many students, the second semester is a time that things really click into place; and we honor them at year's end with an awards ceremony.  But the real reward is getting work done in a timely and proficient manner.  It's never too late for that
