A Message From The Principal

October 8, 2014

Dear Parents, 

We have reached the first five-week mark of the year.  Our interim reports are now posted for you to review.

You may access the comments by signing into your PowerSchool account.  Click on the ‘Grades and Attendance’ tab in the upper left hand corner.  Next to each course under Q1, you will see a blue numerical grade.  If you click on this number you will see all grades to date for this quarter as well as teacher comments located in the upper left corner of the class score detail sheet.  If you have questions or concerns about grades or comments please email the teacher directly.

Clubs and activities before and after school have started.  All students will be exiting the front doors of our building in time to board the 4:15 bus.  If you plan to pick up your child, please arrive prior to 4:15.  At 4:15 all students will be placed on a bus home unless prior arrangements have been made with the advisor.  Also, we do not have supervision after school for student spectators to remain here until 4:15.  Students need to leave at dismissal and return at 4:15.  A reminder about the morning arrival, we open the doors at 7:36.  Unless you are here for a club, or extra help, please do not drop off earlier than 7:36.

We have Red Ribbon Week coming up the week of October 27th.  This week is designed to raise awareness about drugs and alcohol.  The dangers of tobacco, the use of hurtful language, self respect, respect for others and making good choices will also be important topics during this week.  The quote for the week is
“Disrespect – It’s Not Ok.”  More information on theme days will follow.

Other events to be aware of:

October 10 – Emergency Management Drill Dismissal is 15 minutes early.
October 13 – Columbus Day – No School
October 21-24 – Middle School Book Fair
October 24 – PVMA Staff Variety Show – 7:00 p.m. in HS PAC – tickets $10.
October 27-31 – Red Ribbon Week
November 4 – Superintendent’s Conference Day – No school for students.
November 7– End of the first quarter.

Thank you,

Edward J. Hallisey
Principal
