Welcome back to a new school year. We are very excited to be working with all of these awesome students. We were very lucky over the summer to hire some great staff to add to our team. In this letter I am going to provide you with some basic infomation and some upcoming events.
Starting in September we will be beginning our after school RTI tutoring program. Please look for letters from your child's teacher if they have been referred to this program.
Fall sports are starting. Please read the below message regarding this
This is to remind families of what the extracurricular policy of the school is according to site base policy 9.1. To be eligible to participate in dance, cheer, basketball, jfl and track the student needs to maintain a C average. The GPA of the student will be checked every Monday throughout the season. If the student has not maintained this average the student will be ineligible for the week. The student may attend practices and games but they cannot participate. If during the course of the season the student is ineligible 3 times then the student will no longer be on the team. One last reminder, if the student is absent from school the day of a game or practice they are not allowed to participate in the extracurricular activity. Please check with your child's teachers and coaches to make sure they have maintained the minimum grade point average to participate. If you see your child struggling in a subject area please contact their teacher for a tutoring appointment. We also have online web based programs such as Study Island and IXL to help with the understanding of content.
