27-30 August - End of the first month

posted Aug 26, 2019, 12:24 AM by HSD Principal
I don't know about you, but I am very glad for the bonus Monday off right now. I'm not sure how well my brain would have handled coming back to school today. It is a short week, but we will have our regular Tuesday-Friday schedule for classes. 

Thanks again to all who attended and helped out with High School Retreat. As you have opportunity, keep up the conversations that were started there.

Tuesday for ASERT, we will have a HSD meeting, followed by more PD overview.

Wednesday and Thursday, I will be off campus for our Admin Retreat (Despite the similar name, it is much less fun than High School Retreat.). In my absence, Maddy will be the OIC* of high school. (*Officer In Charge, for those wondering about that acronym; I'm not sure how we picked that up for school use.)

This Thursday will be the first time homerooms meet together. Over the past few years, students have asked for more opportunities for different homerooms to do things together. So the master house document has a schedule for when different homerooms within houses will meet together; it's on the HR Brother/Sister sheet. For the most part, those times will be jointly planned by the homeroom leaders and can involve anything students feel would be helpful and fun. On that same document, there is a sheet with possible ideas of how to spend some of those combined homeroom times. One of proposed goals this week is to plan costumes for Squad Day during Spirit Week. ExCo will explain that a bit in chapel. If you are ever curious, you can see the planned activities for each homeroom this year on that linked document as well.

Friday during activity period, houses will meet to continue their preparations for Spirit Week, which is the week after next. More info on that coming.

And yes, after this week, we will be done with our first month of school and half way through first quarter. So please post grades for whatever work you have so far before next week so students have an idea of their progress. Also, continue to use the eligibility reports each week to flag students of concern.
