Principal Message:

The third quarter is an essential period of time for student learning. Key concepts and skills are ramped up within our curriculum as we make substantial progress in our rigorous academic courses. The students and staff can feel the impact of the celebrations from the previous semester and predict future achievements for later this year.
Building wide, each of the focus areas has numerous strategies and daily actions intentionally planned and implemented to ensure effectiveness and success. Below, I have summarized efforts on each of the three focus areas for this school year. We look forward to continue progress as the spring semester moves along. 
Attendance: We have 94.5% student attendance rate (state goal is 95%). Our focus on working with truant students and students who are considered chronically absent continues. Thus far, we have 11.8% of students are chronically absent; this is an improvement of over 80 students from 2 years ago.
Teaching: We have implemented new SAT prep courses during school and afterschool for our juniors in preparation for the School-wide SAT Day on April 5th. Every junior has had multiple opportunities to participate in SAT prep courses throughout this school year. Thanks to RISE Network and Dalio Foundation, these opportunities are available for our students.
Learning: As we move through our Student Learning Expectations, students were scored on all areas on the 2ndQuarter report card. Additionally, our recent Math STAR scores improved 10.5% on average per student, while in Reading STAR, we saw an average increase of 10% per student.
Our students are working hard every day in the classroom and on the playing surface. Come check out our student-athletes as they enter into the tournament season.

student perspective:

Ahhh March. A high schooler's worst enemy. It must be because we're starting to see the warm weather peek out again, and because we know all of the fun activities that come in the spring. That, and the fact that March is filled with nothing but full weeks of school. Four weeks of five straight days in each can really drive someone crazy - and kick someone's butt. But on the bright side, February has gone well - my cheer team has defended our title as CCC Northern Division champions. Volleyball will be starting up soon. It's going to be a long month ahead, but it should be the last big stretch before there's smooth sailing. Let's just hope we all make it through.
