Earth Week

Earth Week

 PRINTER FRIENDLY VERSION 

April 10, 2022

 

Hello,

 

Hope it has been an enjoyable weekend.  As you will read much going on and coming up at Stoneham High School.  Busy time of year that will only get more so after April vacation.

 

It has been a nice weekend and it will only get better in the coming weeks.  Many events, seasonal weather and easy to get distracted.  Keep focused and balance academic needs and expectations so as to have a successful and positive 4th quarter and completion of the school year.

 

Parents and guardians are encouraged to routinely check their student’s PS portal to gauge academic progress and should contact any teacher for any questions or concerns.  Students are encouraged to continue to consistently utilize FLEX block opportunities to support their learning and course work.

 

Have a great week!
