In case you didn’t know …

Yes it is true … students have no school until next Thursday, October 13, 2011. It will be a Day 7 and the order of periods is 1,2,3,4,5,6.

Next Thursday is also Picture Re-Take Day. Students who were absent during the first picture day in September or who want their portraits re-done will have that opportunity on October 13, 2011. If you’ll be purchasing a picture package, be sure to bring your picture envelope with money.

Based on parental input, we will have a second Freshman Orientation Parent Breakfast on October 21, 2011 at 7:45am. We hope you’ll be able to attend.

While your students will be at home next Tuesday and Wednesday, teachers will be here at school doing professional development. In addition to meeting in departments for curriculum and instruction revision, teachers will attend four workshops over the two days. The workshops will be presented by SLRHS teachers, and will encompass technology training and informational sessions about school law, emergency protocols,  and Project Silver, our student mentoring program. I am very appreciative of our teachers who have volunteered their time to prepare, present, and assess these workshops.

Last night’s conferences were very well attended. The parking lot was overflowing and the hallways were filled with parents. Thank you for taking an active role in your children’s education.

Members of the senior class have been diligently turning in their $25.00 for caps and gowns. However, it has come to my attention, that several students may have overpaid since the form used by our cap and gown company was a bit confusing. Be assured that I met with the representative of the cap and gown company today, and any over payment will be returned to students post haste. The company has promised to contact all those affected. Thanks for understanding.

I wish you a happy, healthy, and safe extra long weekend and I am looking forward to seeing a large turnout for our Freshman Parent Orientation.
