20-24 November - Blood Drive, Academic Bowl

posted Nov 19, 2017, 1:18 AM by HSD Principal
The NHS blood drive is Monday. Students wanting to give blood during your class should be checking in with you first. If you have the time and inclination, you are also free to donate your cells as well.

We will be hosting the first semester high school Academic Bowl on Tuesday. Students who will be missing class should have brought absence forms around to you.

I will be sending out feedback forms on the double double block weeks in a few days. I'm working on the questions now, so if you would like to contribute or if there is a specific question you would like either students or staff to answer, you can add things to this document.

In about a week, I will be asking your plans for your end-of-semester assessments. So if you haven't thought that far ahead yet, start planning so we can figure out our exam week schedule.

Also in about a week, we will put out the initial poll for academic awards for first semester. Your departments will need to coordinate to determine which awards you would like to give. Awards for this semester will be tied to specific SLRs, so you can start thinking ahead about how you would like to handle that for your classes.

For those celebrating US Thanksgiving, we will not have after school activities or sports practices on Thursday this week - 23 November.
And as we finish the semester, please make sure you are flagging all students who are performing poorly in your classes as ineligible each week. We want to make sure students and their parents have had ample warning and time to catch up if they are in danger of failing.
