Week of February 13, 2017
Are we ever appreciating this sunny weather…and so hopefully are the kids. It’s been tough for them with all this rain. At least there are a few more days of sun ahead before the next rains!
Counselors are making their rounds into current 9th grade English classes, and 10th and 11th grade history classes. They are distributing transcripts and reviewing the course selection process with the students. Please visit our Course Selection Portal (under Quick Links to the right) to review everything you could possibly want to know about the course selection process. The On-Line Course Selection Window opened on February 8th and closes on February 24th.
Speaking of Course Selection: Our very popular Genomics Pathway will be taking 14-16 Juniors into next year’s cohort. Informational meetings will be held in March, applications and interviews will take place in early April. Stay tuned for more information.
Even with all this rain, we are already venturing into the Spring Sports’ Season. We are expecting parents/guardians of spring athletes to attend the mandatory spring sports meeting on Monday, February 13th at 6:00pm in the cafeteria. We look forward to seeing everyone there.
On the subject of athletics, the 18th Annual Athletic Boosters Crab Feed will be on Saturday, February 25th at 5:00 at the O’Club on the base. Proceeds will benefit the Encinal Athletic Programs. Tickets are $50 per person or $600 for a reserved table for 10. You can purchase tickets on-line at www.encinalboosters.org. This is a fun, fun night and it’s for a great cause. All are welcome!!
Finally, did you know you can monitor your student’s daily attendance on School Loop? Right above grades, there is a tab for attendance, where you can check to see if your child is making it to class on time each day. We strongly recommend monitoring your child’s attendance because we know that students who attend school on a regular basis and on time do much better in school. We thank you in advance for partnering with us to insure your child’s success.
Lastly….this Friday, February 17th and Monday, February 20th are holidays, as we celebrate the Presidents’ Holiday. We look forward to seeing your students return to school on Tuesday, February 21st at 8:00am.
