“Empower Students to Achieve!”
Salaam Awaleekoom (“Peace be with you” in standard Arabic)*
“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.”
- With only five weeks of school (hard to believe!) left in this semester, it is extremely important that students are aware of their grades and progress.
- Thank you to our football team and coaches for representing our school and community with class and character this year.Football games are a big event for our community and our team, band, and cheerleaders always make it a great night!GO TIGERS!!!
- Our Veteran’s Day program is Wednesday, Nov. 11th at 9:30am. Many thanks go out to everyone who work on the program and make it such a special day.It not only honors our veterans, but also is a great instructional tool for our students.We strive to use it as an opportunity to let students know the sacrifice that has been made for them to live in this country.
- Next Monday, November 16th is a professional development day.This is a time for our staff to finalize and post benchmark assessment score sheets and our instructional strategies. This is a focus of this year. Staff will also work on and share best practices in using technology in the classroom. Our high school uses part of this day to change student schedules to start the new trimester.
*About seven years ago, a group of five senior students participated in an independent study class to develop a global education plan for the district.This simple plan revolves around four cultures identified as the four key culture and languages that United States students should be familiar with for both economic and national security.Those cultures/languages are:Chinese, Arabic, French, and Spanish.This nine-week period our focus is on the Arabic culture.There is strength in learning about those around us.Please take any opportunity you see to discuss the culture of this area, the language, and the significance on world events.
