Week of September 23-September 27, 2013—Ninth Grade

Parents,

Today the ninth grade counselor, Mr. Shane Howard spoke to my ninth grade classes about GPAs, the importance of grades now that they are in high school—how it can affect their college choices, and we also distributed the results from last spring’s ARMT testing. ┬áPlease ask your child if you can view the report.

The September calendar is not right–we have had to reschedule some items. This is what the week should look like:
