Principal’s Message


Happy New Year! I hope your new year is off to a good start and wish that you will experience a wonderful 2020!

January is an extremely important month for our students because it marks the end of the first semester grading period. Semester grades are significant because they are entered onto a student’s permanent transcript. One key step remains prior to final semester grades are complete however, semester Final Exams.

Next week we will have a special Final Exam Schedule Tuesday-Thursday. Tuesday and Wednesday will be late arrival days followed by three finals. We adopted this schedule so that students can get some extra rest prior to taking exams. Thursday will be a regular arrival day, but after two exams students will be released at 10:46. Friday will be a grading day for teachers…no school for students!

As exams approach it will be important for students to study, but it is equally as essential to be sure they get plenty of rest (limit the all night study sessions) and eat right. Good health practices contribute to positive test outcomes.

It is also important to note that the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday is observed on Monday, January 20th. On this day we honor the memory of Dr. King and all the contributions he provided to our country.
