Good evening Leopards,


I hope you had a wonderful weekend. As we move into the second quarter, we are planning for the return to school as well as the continued commitment to connecting with our students. Our team has been working hard to plan and be prepared for November 9th. 


We have a busy week ahead with our material distribution day and a school-wide asynchronous day. Please review the information below regarding the details. I hope you have a wonderful evening!

Change of Schedule for the Week of October 19- October 23rd


All classes will be live Monday-Wednesday and Thursday is an asynchronous day for the whole school. There will be no asynchronous periods on these days.


All missing work should be submitted by the end of the day on Thursday, 10/22. The purpose is for students to have one final day to complete missing work, as well as recharge and get ready for a great start to the second quarter. Teachers will host office hours to help with missing work questions. The schedule is listed below.


To celebrate the end of the quarter we will be hosting fun, PBIS Google Meet activities from 8:30 - 9:30. Students still need to check with Homeroom to be marked present for the day between 8:15 - 8:30. After this, students can choose to attend a PBIS session. We encourage everyone to join a session.
