PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

Spring 2016


We are into what we call "testing season." Our state tests for 10th and 11th graders are underway. Our 11th and 12th graders will be taking IB and AP tests throughout the month of May. Please encourage your children to get plenty of rest. While preparing for exams is important, so is adequate rest. Additionally: please remind your children to eat a healthy breakfast before coming to school, or to eat breakfast at school. We offer a wonderful breakfast right here on campus!


Here is a link to a blog regarding "struggling learners." The idea is that all students should struggle when they learn. Please, take a look at it.

All Students Should be Struggling Learners
