February Black History Month

Question for the week. (Please put the answer on a piece of paper with your first & last name in the counseling office)

Who is the person responsible for launching the Birmingham bus boycott, one of the pivotal events of the civil-rights movement?


Shirley Chisholm was the first African American woman elected to the House of Representatives. She was elected in 1968 and represented the state of New York. She broke ground again four years later in 1972 when she was the first major party African-American candidate and the first female candidate to run for president of the United States


Media Center

Students, please return any overdue books to the Media Center as soon as possible.


Student Attendance

  • Daily attendance is necessary for a student to be successful at school. In addition, patterns of regular attendance and on-time arrival established now will help students throughout their education and their employment years.

  • If a student’s absence or tardy is excused, they should bring a note from a parent or guardian excusing them. Failure to bring a note within three days will automatically be considered unexcused.

  • Student’s attendance and tardies are monitored by the school. Beginning Marking Period 3 on January 29, 2019, students will be receiving consequences after three tardies to school.


ESOL 10’s WIDA ACCESS Testing

All ESOL 10 students will take the WIDA ACCESS test today.
