Hello, Bruins,
We have officially ended our first semester and are ready to begin our second semester this upcoming Monday. Every student will have a new semester schedule with new classes. Those schedules will be posted on the walls at every grade level entrance for a safe grab-n-go when students enter the building on Monday. 
 
Final progress reports will be mailed out on Wednesday, January 27th. 
 
We are working hard to improve student attendance this semester, so please help us by ensuring your student attends school every day on time. Grade levels with the best attendance can win Bruin swag! 
 
Parents of seniors, we are pleased to announce thatKymmarie Skinnerhas volunteered to lead our Class of 2021 Safe & Sober team but she needs help! Please email her at kymmarieskinner@gmail.com to see how you can help make it a night to remember for our seniors. 
 
Finally, If you have any textbooks and library books at home, please help us by returning them to our lobby. Seniors will need to be cleared in order to participate in any upcoming graduation activities. 
 
Have a great weekend, Bruins!

Second semester classes are available on Edgenuity and will be viewable on PowerSchool by the end of next week. If you have any scheduling questions please email your counselor. 
 
If your student is interested in taking a diagnostic test for each Edgenuity course to remove any previously mastered lessons, please call the front office to schedule an appointment before starting the course.  
 
We are working hard to improve student attendance, so please ensure your student logs on and completes work in Edgenuity every day. Grade levels with the best attendance can win Bruin swag!
