“Soar to New Horizons” 2021-2022 School Theme
Tuesday, September 14, 2021
Last week was a great week. Students participated in activities of service, honoring frontline worker heroes in commemoration of 9/11. We cheered on our teams for homecoming, held an awesome homecoming dance, and participated in a slew of lunchtime activities. We have clubs that are starting up, and all-in-all, students have some great extracurricular and social activities. We value these. We know these things substantially enrich a high school experience. In addition, Jet Time is going better than ever. Students are connecting better with each other and their teachers. We are lucky to have a great staff supporting this.
As we move forward with this week, please make note of the following:
It is already mid-term this week! Please encourage your students to get on top of their assignments and homework. School is always better when students stay on top of their work. Regularly looking at Skyward is a great way to see how your student is doing. Feel free to reach out to any teachers with questions or concerns.

3. Chromebook Reminders:
-Parents have access to Blocksi, a program that helps you monitor, limit, and control your child’s use of their Chromebooks. Please see this training for signing up and using the program.
