November News From High School Principal
With one quarter of the school year gone there are a few important things to mention in November. As we take a short break between sports seasons we get a little time to give thanks. Thanksgiving break this year will have students dismissed on November 27th and returning to school on December 2nd. Please also remember that we will have a blood drive on December 4th in the West Gym. Please consider donating to this good cause that our students support.
On November 11th we will be having a Veterans day program in the east gym starting at 9:30 am. Our community is always very supportive of our veterans and our students enjoy performing for the public.
November 8th will be a Fall Break with no school for our staff and students.
Winter sports practice starts November 18th. Students are reminded that if they didn’t participate in a fall sport, they need to get a physical turned into the high school office along with necessary paperwork. We look forward to another competitive and successful sports season. It has been enjoyable watching our student-athletes compete throughout the area and on the state level.
With the changing seasons please be aware that winter weather may be upon us soon. As an administrative team we will do our best to make sure that our families are notified if there is inclement weather that will cause school to be started late, let out early, or cancelled. Local media outlets will be notified and a school messenger will be sent out to all families. Please be sure to let us know if your contact information has been changed since the start of the school year so that we can update it in our system.
I would like to give a big thank you to all parents and guardians that attended Parent/Teacher conferences on October 24th and 25th. We had a nice turnout for our seventh grade through twelfth grade families. We ended up having 127 families sign in to visit our teachers about the progress of their children. This came to a 49% attendance rate. It is great to see all of the support from our families for the education of the children that attend our school.
Once again, thank you for taking the time to be a part of your child’s education. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the high school office.
