Happy New Year!

It is wonderful to be back in school after a restful break over the holiday season.

We have a very busy January schedule ahead of us as we bring semester one to a close and finalize our plans for semester two schedules. We are adjusting our schedule on several days to accommodate for large scale assessments.

Please note that we have highlighted days in which we will adjust our bell schedule this month. More specifically, on January 11 and January 12 we will be on a special schedule as all students 9th -12th complete the Round 2 of iReady. iReady ELA (all English classes) for grades 9th-12th will take place on January 11th. iReady Mathematics will take place on January 12th on the same special schedule. We have periodically used this schedule to balance the completion of these assessments and impact of our typical instructional day.

We have a special assembly schedule in place for January 13th and our MLK Assembly presented by the Diversity Equity Club.

Our second round of our Panorama student input will take place on Friday, January 20th during our regular Friday 2nd period extension.

Finally, we have also included the Semester 1 Final Exam Schedule for January 25th and January 26th. Families can expect to receive printed Semester 1 report cards after February 8th. Semester 1 grades will be added to students’ official high school transcripts.

We appreciate your flexibility and thanks in advance for helping us plan ahead.

If you have any questions, be sure to email or call me.
