Message from the Principal
During the next month, we will be beginning student registration for the 2017-2018 school year, as we simultaneous get ready for the Class of 2021! You will be seeing course information and registration forms coming home with your son or daughter for you to review and sign.
This is a great opportunity for you to sit down with your son or daughter and discuss their academic plan for the next school year and in the years after high school. Registering for an Advanced Placement, Honors, or extra year of Math, Science, Art, Technology, or Language is a definite commitment of the additional time and effort necessary for success in these courses. It is also a good investment in the future and sets a foundation for advanced options and choices in the years ahead. We have a great tradition in our school of students setting sights on lofty goals, taking these commitments seriously and doing what it takes to extend themselves academically. These attributes are the very selfsame ones that both colleges and companies are looking for when they make their selections for candidates.
Please contact your student's counselor if you have questions regarding the choices your students would be able to make in the coming school year.
Registration is also an opportunity to discuss your student's extracurricular plans. Are they going to get involved with Athletics, Student Government, DECA, TSA, MUN, FBLA, Drama, Coding, Music, or one of our many other co-curricular and extra-curricular activities? As there is a high correlation between students' involvement in co/extra-curricular activities and their academic success, let's encourage them to get involved in at least one sport or activity during each school year.
Thanks as always for your continued support and partnership.
