ANNOUNCEMENTS

Friday, June 7, 2019: All periods meet, starting with A

 

 

All summer SAE offerings are listed at the very end of the electronic version of these announcements, including program descriptions, dates, and method of signup. Students should sign up for slots ASAP as enrollment is limited. This is an excellent way to fulfill your SAE plan if you have been unable to do so during the school year.

 

 

Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors! Don’t forget to bring back your ChromeBook AND your CHARGERS for the summer when you come for finals next week.  Return to your English teachers! 

 

IF YOU HAVE BORROWED A CHROMEBOOK AND CHARGER FROM STUDENT SERVICES THIS YEAR PLEASE RETURN IT TODAY

 

Ninth graders, please pay attention.  We are still missing 41 of your current physicals and immunizations.  If you plan on being here for sophomore year, please bring those forms to the nurse either before your last day of school as a freshman or on the first day of school in August.  The State requires that we have these physicals, and we will send home sophomores who do not comply.

 

 

9th, 10th, and 11th graders — Are you interested in learning Arabic, German, Greek, Irish, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Ukrainian, or Urdu next year at Yale? Register NOW for the WorldCLASS program that will meet once a week from October to May and earn a quarter credit.
