HS Bobcat Weekly Blast 1/9/23

Good afternoon Bobcats!

I hope you are all settling into 2023 well. Last week I was able to pop into some classes and have seen some really great teaching.  In every class I visited, the tone was being set with high academic expectations.

I also wanted to give a HUGE shoutout to all our EOC teachers from S1, Ms. Witherspoon, Ms. Young, Ms. Parkin, Ms. Price, Mrs. Alford and Mr. Alford for raising proficiency across the board! This is certainly due to the hard work of these teachers, but also in large part to the entire staff for raising academic expectations all around. This is a reflection of our entire student and staff body – I am really proud of this ENTIRE school!

The growth has been tremendous and should be celebrated!

Curriculum Night

We will host a curriculum fair on February 2nd from 6:00pm – 7:00pm. The Curriculum Fair will help students and families learn more about the variety of courses offered to make strategic selections during registration for the 23-24 school year.

The format of the evening will be as follows:

Students and families will enter through the gym, where they will be greeted by current seniors and given an informational flier about the evening. They will be able to choose three of the sessions listed below to attend, one of which should be the department course offerings.

The sessions include:

  • Rising 9th Grade Session

  • Rising Senior Session

  • AP Course Overview

  • Department Course Offerings and Overview

  • CCP Program

  • Q&A

Current Seniors – please complete this form if you are interested in assisting with Curriculum Night.

Bobcat Spotlight

In an effort to highlight our amazing staff and students we are initiating the Bobcat Spotlight. Each month has a different character trait ( January is Kindness ). When you see someone exhibiting this behavior then you nominate them using this link.  You can also snap a picture if you like!

Both students and teachers can be nominated!  Check out the bulletin board in the commons to see printed pictures and blurbs about how our nominated students and staff displayed the character trait!

Intent to Return

Intent to Return: All families are required to complete the annual Intent to Return to indicate their plans for enrollment for next year. Directions are linked here. Please note that the deadline is January 27th. Please contact Mrs. Hover if you have any questions.
