After the holidays, some students in the high school will be taking EOI tests to make up ones missed. There are only a few who will be testing at this time. All students should use the break to catch up on reading and preparing for state spring tests. Reading every day for at least 30 minutes and/or working on math facts is a great way to stay focused on school.

The second quarter of school is more than half over. We will be sending progress reports and student login information for gradebook home with students today. The progress report is an indication of where your child is today with what grades have been recorded through today. The gradebook login allows parents to go online and see attendance and grades as well as assignments. We have a computer in the hallway by the admin offices that is available to parents for this purpose. Please talk to your child’s teacher if you have questions. We only have 3 weeks to get all grades to the best level for the semester report. Semester grades go down in history, and they are very important. It is imperative that all work is turned in on time and completed. School is a mini society and developing a good work ethic is very important for all students.

Our basketball season is in full swing. During the month of December, there will be several ballgames. We would love to have our community come to the games and enjoy an evening with us. Our next home game will be Dec. 18. We play Shidler and the first game will start at 4:30. Join us if you can.

We hope everyone has a safe and wonderful break!
