10th Grade Classroom Guidance

Mrs. Voltz, Mrs. Brooks and Mrs. Bain (counseling intern) enjoyed visiting all of the English 10 classrooms over the past couple of weeks.  Together we discussed graduation requirements, ways to get involved, build a resume and gave tips & suggestions for ways to start planning for the future.  This is the time to do it!  

Also, the students were given a copy of their individual transcript with which we performed a credit check.  They were allowed to keep their copy to reference later, if needed.  

End of the 1st 9-Weeks

The 1st 9-weeks ends on Friday, October 7, 2016.  Report cards will not be mailed home, but will be given to your student(s) during the school day on Thursday, October 13th.
As a reminder, semester grades are calculated using the following percentages:  (1st nine weeks = 40%, 2nd nine weeks = 40%, and semester exam = 20%).
You are encouraged to access iNOW Home Portal and contact your student’s teacher(s) for specific information about his/her performance in school. You can reach a teacher by calling the main office or by e-mail.
