WHAT’S NEW for the Week of September 4-10, 2017
I hope everyone is enjoying their Labor Day Holiday. Labor Day is supposed to be the unofficial end of summer, but with 95 degree temperatures it sure doesn’t feel like summer is ending anytime soon.
We are now entering the 4th week of school. This Wednesday, 9/6, will be the first time we publish a warning list for this quarter. A student is placed on the warning list when he/she has two grades below a C. If a student has two grades below a C again during the quarter, then he/she will be ineligible. Ineligible students are not allowed to participate in in extra-curricular activities. Also, we do require all ineligible students to work with their teachers for an hour beyond the school day to help to bring their grades up.
This past week our advisory activity focused on the many stories of courage in response to the effects of Hurricane Harvey. The hurricane and flooding devastated the Houston area and it will take years for the region to recover. Yet, so many people have stepped up to help one another in acts of heroism and unselfishness. We hope to help the victims of this tragedy by raising money next week at our school. Student Council will be selling chocolate bars for $1.00 all week to students and all proceeds will benefit the American Red Cross Relief Fund.
