Principal's Notes

October 9, 2018

7TH & 9TH GRADE STUDENTS & LINK LEADERS WILL NOT MEET UNTIL DECEMBER  To everyone who participated in the Link Leader program, thank you for showing up early every week.  Because the first quarter will conclude this week, we will not meet on Wednesday.  Students will not meet with their Link Leader until December.  Keep reading to learn when the next meeting will be.

PSAT TESTING IS TOMORROW, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 10  Students, please bring pencils, a calculator, and your brightest mind tomorrow to school to participate in PSAT testing.  10th and 11th grade students must report to school from 8:00am to 11:15am.  7th, 8th, and 9th grade students must attend from 12:00pm to 3:15pm.  There is no supervision or rooms available for students who are dropped off early or picked up late.  Please make arrangements so they are not here for the full day.

PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCES BEGIN TONIGHT  If you are planning on attending conferences, you will notice a few changes.  First, all parking will be located in our temporary parking lot at 113th Avenue and Reed Way.  The visitor parking close to the building is reserved for Handicap parking only.   Second, conferences will take place in a select number of classrooms.  Each department will conduct conferences in a single classroom.  When you check in, you will receive a handout with the location of each teacher within the building.  Please limit your conferences to 5 minutes or less.

Tonight (Tuesday), Junior High students and parents may meet with their teachers from 3:30pm to 5:30pm.  Tomorrow night (Wednesday), Junior High and High School students and parents may meet with their teachers from 3:30pm to 5:30pm and from 6:15pm to 8:00pm.  Individual conference invitations were sent to families last week for pre-scheduled times on Thursday.

PLEASE CHECK THE LOST & FOUND IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS  A table will be set up outside of the office for lost and found items.  There are so many interesting things lost including multitudes of water bottles, tennis shoes, pants, a bra, and even a bicycle.  Please check the table for your lost items.  We will donate all lost items at the end of the week.  (Note:  the bicycle is not on the table, but please see Mr. Bott if you lost a bicycle.)

PE LOCKER CLEANOUT Because the quarter changes at the end of the week, it is important that all belongings are cleaned out at the end of the time in your class.  Please bring home all socks, shirts, etc so the next class can use and enjoy a clean locker.  If you are an athlete in the middle of your season, this does not apply.

TRICK OR TREAT STREET IS THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25  Student Government is busy coordinating this amazing event for our community.  All of our clubs and organizations are creating fun activities for our youngest community members to enjoy.  Please mark your calendar for the third annual Trick or Treat Street event.  The fun begins at 6:30pm at the school!  We are looking for baked goods and treats for the Cake Walk.  If you would like to bring a treat for this great activity, please sign up using this link: Trick or Treat Street Cake Walk SignUp

THANK YOU FOR FOLLOWING THE RULES  Since last week, we lost our parking lot.  We have started a new traffic pattern.  Our students and staff are walking a bit of a distance to get to the building.  Making a good thing out of a poor situation, I have been thrilled to see how positive everyone has been.  Thank you for following the rules, waving to our faculty and staff, and being responsive to our small corrections.  It is heartwarming to know I am part of a community that values each other enough to smile through change.  If you are enjoying the flexibility of the new drop-off/pick-up procedure and would like to continue using it even after our parking lot is finished, you are welcome to do so!

Have a great week!
