UP COMING EVENTS

This Friday, 9/29 ALL 9th-11th grade students will be taking the practice PAST test.  This will start at 12:45 and will take about 3+ hours.  Students will get out of school a little later than a normal Friday, more like 4:00-4:15.  On this same day the seniors will be meeting will Ms. Lily to talk about things they need to be doing now to apply to colleges.  They will meet DURING the lunch time, and will be dismissed when they are done (there will be no chapel on this Friday)

Next week Oct. 6th will be our first field trip of the year.  The school will be going to the Getty museum.  Students need to be on time so the bus can have enough time to get us to the Getty for our appointed time.  We will be leaving the Getty about 2:30.  We know traffic will be Friday heavy, but we hope to be back to school by 4:30.  Uniforms are not required for field trips; however, there are guidelines in the handbook.

The First Week is Over !

Congratulations!!! You made it through the first week of school.  You may have had a quiz or two, and I am sure you had homework.  All this means is that you are starting to build up your grades for the year.  This year the school has started a "study with your teacher" program on Monday-Wednesday.  This program will be mandatory for any student who is behind in their homework, or who is getting D or less in the class.  This study time may also be used by those students who want to get some help from their teacher in order to raise their grade.  The time for this "study hall" is from 3:40 to 5:00 PM on Mon-Wed.  Our teachers hope that they only students they will see are those who are trying to better their grade, not those who must be there because of their grade.

Student counsel elections are scheduled for Sept.22 (Friday).  If any student is interested, start planning your campaign for the week of Sept. 18th.  The office will have the rules for those interested students ready for pick up on Monday Sept 11th.

Thursday schedule this year for the time 3-5 PM consists of 2 club periods.  

Fridays will be our short day.  As in the past, after lunch we will meet for Chapel or for an assembly in the youth building.  Students will be dismissed when the event is over, usually about 1:45 PM.
