Good morning! Please stand for the "Pledge of Allegiance". (Say Pledge- give everyone enough time to stand and be seated before beginning announcements)
The quote for this testing month is "We are almost done, take a deep breath, go with the flow. Just do your best and show what you know!"
Good luck to our testing students today, we know you will try to do your best. This week we finish our math part of the ISAT Testing. These tests are important to you as students and to our school. Thank you for doing your best work!
Summer School forms have been handed out by Mrs. Sayer and need to be brought back immediately. Advisory teachers will you please check who has not brought back their forms.

There will be a Saturday School April 21st from 7 until 11 AM to help students with their grades. Don't wait until the last minute to try to change your grade...it might be too late! Late assignments are accepted at Saturday school, but students must ask their teacher for the work.
There will be no school on Friday, April 27th due to teacher inservice.
We would like to remind ALL students that their GPA requirements you receive right now 3rd trimester, count for 1st trimester of next year's extracurricular activities such as freshman football, cross country, soccer, dance groups, cheerleading etc. Don't allow yourself to acquire a habit of failing just because it is not required to go to the next grade. That mindset becomes a habit and that habit becomes part of your attitude in life. Don't give up, give 100% effort all of the time.
Students of the Week are chosen by their teachers based on being responsible academically and behaviorally, and by showing improvement. Being a person who shows Warrior pride is being a person of integrity by being responsible, respectful, compassionate, caring, and modeling good school citizenship. Students who are chosen receive a certificate and recognition. We truly believe, "The Best Kids In The World Walk Through These Doors!" Students chosen for the week of April 13th include Duilio Gomez, Eric Berrelleza, Kendalyn Anderson, Nicolas Canelo, and Dylan Swanson. Teachers, please place your nominations for this week.

We need to commit ourselves to REACH, the R standing for showing responsibility and respect, to yourself and to others, the E for being Empowered, knowing that we need to speak positively to ourselves, A is for acts of kindness every day you can give compliments or just say hello, C is for Compassion take his challenge and make someone feel good, H stands for Healthy and Happy Lifestyle staying away from drugs, alcohol by making positive choices. Follow the ABC's of life with action, belief, and commitment. Our hope is to carry through on this challenge by not bullying others, by being a positive person who always makes sure you try to be a better person today than you were yesterday! Let's have discussions in advisory on how we can carry this forward in our school.
