Just three more days left in the second quarter! Friday marks the halfway point of our 2015-2016 school year. Report cards will be published on Gradelink and printed the first week of February.
As we have the last two years, we're celebrating the midpoint of the year with Electives Week. Students have (mostly) turned in their elective choices, and teachers and presenters are gearing up for an enjoyable and inspiring week of exploring new ideas!
Almost every class is unique this year. Some that filled up quickly to overflowing were Knight Training with Mrs. McGill, Stained Glass art with Mrs. Chambers, and GeoCaching with Mrs. Wilmoth (we've added a second class now with Mrs. Mcgill.) Felting with Mrs. Hardesty also needed the addition of a second class! There are many other popular classes in the line-up for your students to anticipate.
If there was a fee attached to their class schedule (coming home tomorrow), you can either send the payment next week, drop it in the box in the office marked "electives week" or we will invoice you on your next ICA bill. Any questions can be sent to Mrs. Ohme at firstname.lastname@example.org She has done a fantastic job putting together the matrix of classes and schedules for next week. You might send some kudos her way when you see her next.
Remember that Monday, February 5th, there will be no school. Then Tuesday-Friday students will attend regular math class followed by four electives from their choice sheet.
Tuesday, February 9th is our Second Quarter Awards meal and showcase night for Electives week. This is the only one of the three awards meals that takes place in the evening. Dinner will be served at 6:00 pm followed by awards and the showcase. I hope your family can join the celebration!
Of course there is still more to read in the attached Message Tuesday document. Thursday and Friday there is no bus service as the public school is not in session.
The photo above is our JH/HS art class exhibiting their hand art last week.. I thought you might enjoy their creativity.
Thanks for the privilege of working with your students! It's a great job.
Warm January regards,
