Principal's Message 10/3/21

Happy Fall

Happy Fall




Feeling like the beginning of Fall.  Ready for the turning of the leaves and the full October experience.   We are also at the halfway point of the 1st quarter and a noticeable increase in academic rigor and expectation in classes.  Students are reminded and encouraged to optimize the benefits of the FLEX block.  From work completion in a quiet study, to academic support with your teacher to an enrichment opportunity there is something to benefit all of our students.  


Many fun and exciting things are on full display throughout our campus.  From great competition and success of our Fall Athletic Teams, displays in the Main Lobby by Peer Mentors and GSA and Skeleton sketches from Art Class, activities like International Breakfast in the Cafeteria and after school chess matches to engaging instruction in the classroom; our school is a vibrant learning community.  Please see the Daily Bulletins and our School Website to stay informed of activities and events.


Have a great week!
