As we begin final preparation for the 2018-2019 school year to end, please take the time to reflect with your student. Did he/she give 100% effort? Did he/she accomplish everything they wanted to? Is he/she putting themselves in position to attend the college or university of his/her choice? It is my hope that all students are putting themselves in a position to keep as many doors and options open for them in the future. As the school year ends, let’s remain focused on the marathon of this academic year and finish strong!

Please mark May 14, 2019 as our Senior Honors Night, scheduled for 7:00 p.m. in the PAC. I am always amazed at the success of our seniors. Senior Honors Night validates for me that hard work in high school pays off for our students.

Our juniors are starting to see the results from the SAT/M-Step test they took in April. I am encouraged by the early results that students have shared. It looks like we are on track to meet our learning goals for the year. The students I visited with continue to tell me they felt they did well on the test because they had challenged themselves with an AP class. If your student is not considering taking an AP class for next year, please consider having the take one as part of their educational plan. If you would like to make a schedule change please see your counselor today. Taking an AP class will prepare students to meet the challenges of the SAT test, and earn a score that denotes they are college ready and catapult them into the college of their dreams.

If you haven’t joined us yet, please consider attending our monthly Falcon Advisory meeting.  The final meeting for the year is May 17th at 9:00 a.m.  Please join us so you know what is going on at our school and you also have a chance to ask questions and make suggestions for improving your student’s education.
