Saturday School Tomorrow
This is an academic work session. Students are expected to arrive at 9 am with school work and a commitment to get caught up. Teachers, a counselor, and principal have volunteered to be onsite to work with students. It is expected that all students who attend will have a positive and productive experience, however students unable to follow expectations will be sent home to ensure a positive learning environment. Permission forms will be available in the main office starting Tuesday, February 26, 2020.
From the Office
If you shop at Office Depot/Office Max, give them Eckstein’s school code – 70107353. Eckstein gets money back every quarter. The Main Office uses this as their ‘supply’ money so we don’t have to use other school money. The checks have ranged from $12 to over $700.00 at times. It is an easy way to give back to the school!
Elective Registration for 6
Your student received an Elective Registration Worksheet on colored paper for choosing electives for the 2020-2021 school year. Please go over the choices with your student and fill out the form in preparation for our New Online Course Request System. Next week, counselors will visit classrooms with laptops to coach students through completing their elective course requests online to ensure that everyone gets their choices entered.

Parents and students are cordially invited to a workshop with Martin Abdo on a 4-step process from effectively managing stress. The method he developed is called OPA which stands for Organize.
