  • Thursday, February 2nd, and it is a RED DAY 

     

    Today is the first day of February and the third of the new semester. Students should now be set with their classroom routines and how to get to their new classrooms this semester.  

     

    Please continue to keep your area and the areas around you clean. There will be more activities and opportunities available in Semester II. 

     

    February also marks Black History Month, an opportunity to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of Black Americans who have played a central role in the history of America and beyond. Each year the celebration of Black History has a theme – this years theme is Black Resistance which is meant to celebrate the people, themes, and movements that have lobbied, litigated, protested, and achieved success in the fight for equality. Throughout the month of February, we will recognize a person, organization or event that helped lead that fight.

    TODAY we will also have our first-ever Lunch & Learn Curriculum Fair. Specifically for students in grades 9-11, this will be an opportunity to see all the courses available for next year. It’s also the same day as the Arts Crawl and Music Crawl. The main gym will be closed.  

     

    Red & Black is approaching – students should check their teams’ Canvas page for information, sign-ups, and other important information. Red & Black t-shirts are available for sale – you can find the link on the website, or you can scan the QR code found on the desk in the main office 

    An important reminder, while we are excited about Red and Black and all that it offers, your behavior plays a key role. Red and Black participation is a privilege, and therefore, poor behavior and ongoing discipline issues will prohibit you from participating in this school-wide event. Make the right choices, and don’t let your team down.
