Good evening,

 

I hope this message finds you in a good mindset as we enter the last week of March and the final week of the 3rd Academic Grading Quarter.  Spring athletics pick up momentum this week with first game competitions beginning Friday.  Musical rehearsals are in full swing, clubs are busy with activities. As the weather warms the excitement will increase for our extracurricular activities and events.

 

As mentioned, many times, it is essential that students effectively manage their learning and academics with consistent and meaningful engagement with their teachers and use of FLEX block opportunities.  This week allows three FLEX block sessions to support students with successfully completing the 3rd quarter.

 

Have a great week!

School Attendance

Consistent and regular daily school attendance is the best indicator for learning and academic growth and success.  This includes tardiness to school.  Students are expected to be in their classrooms for the start of their first class at 8:15am.  Please plan your morning routines to ensure  arrival at school that allows you to be in class for 8:15am.  Students should report to their scheduled class at the first bell at 8:10AM

 

Students arriving late to class disrupts the learning process for themselves and their classmates.  Excessive tardiness, as defined in our Student Handbook will result in disciplinary action.

Carnival Ball 2022

Carnival Ball performances will be on April 29th and 30th.  The theme of Carnival Ball 2022 is “On the Red Carpet.” Classes will perform skits related to Grammy Awards, Tony Awards, Academy Awards, or any other Hollywood related events.

 

The April 29th show will be held for students only during FLEX block.

 

The April 30th show will be for students, families, friends, and community members; the show will start promptly at 6:30PM.

 

Carnival Ball will be structured differently this year.  Classes will  compete against each other to see who is the champion of Carnival Ball.  Skits will be judged by a teacher panel based on: percentage of students involved, creativity, and execution.  

 

In addition to class acts, students can try out to perform (dance, singing, instrumental routines) [and/or] help to introduce acts/performances to the red carpet.

 

Tryouts will take place on March 18 - 25 during FLEX in the auditorium.

 

Historically, students involved have “dressed to impress,” students are encouraged to wear “red carpet” attire or whatever they are most comfortable in for it.

 

We want to ensure inclusivity and positivity; this is about the SHS community.
