Principal’s Update 11/17/16

The students were excited to be back today! Some students will change classes if they had a class that is a 9 weeks class (Computers, Art, MIE, Business, and sometimes, Wellness.) We told them that today is a fresh start in their classes. If they fell short of their goals, they can create new habits for studying and completing their homework. If they met their goals last quarter, they can continue the hard work they have put in so far. The second quarter always seems to go by fast!
