PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

Spring 2017 - Testing Season Begins

April 18-20 and 25-27 (Tuesday - Thursday) we will be facilitating state testing for our 10th and 11th grade students. 

To provide the most optimal testing environment, we have adjusted our bell schedule on those days. Each day will consist of two class periods, 2.5 hours each. All non testing students will have instruction and lessons in their classes. Therefore all students are expected to attend school and all classes, as they would any other day.

Please refer to the bell schedule on this page for more details.


Our theme this year is BeBold! Our staff are stepping outside their comfort zones to create rigorous, relevant, and engaging learning experiences aligned with the Common Core State Standards. We are redefining excellence every day! Your students will be asked to think critically, collaborate with others and respond in writing and orally using high level academic language.


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
