Dear Lancer Families,

Welcome back! We are excited to start a new year together, and complete our first semester of learning with a strong finish. Final exams are two weeks away. It is important to talk with your child about what assignments must be completed and turned in to show learning and earn credit. Talk with your child's teachers about opportunities for re-dos to work towards mastery. There are also lunch and after school study support groups that your child can attend to get help with learning. We will partner together to make sure we end the semester with a strong finish!

I recently shared the following quote with our staff, and I want to pass it on to you as well: "Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love."

Students will be entering course selections from Jan 31- Feb 14 in their 2nd blocks. It is important to note that students will need to give much thought and care in their course selections, to meet their graduation requirements and post high school career plans. Course changes will only be allowed under limited, special considerations and reviewed by a panel of Counselors and Administrators. Students will be supported and encouraged to remain in their selected courses.
