The second semester has gotten off to a great start. Seniors and 8th graders were met with to review graduation and promotion requirements, especially in terms of participating in celebratory activities. If you have a senior or 8th grader, you may want to ask them what they need to do to be able to participate in all the fun and exciting year end activities. Also, please check the School Loop Calendar for dates for all events associated with graduation and promotion.
Report cards have been mailed. Please look for them in your mail boxes this week.
We will soon be getting a brand new radio and television studio at Encinal. Due to the immediate nature of getting the building out of this started, we have needed to relocate some offices and programs. The Student Justice Center is now in the main office. Many of the people in the office have relocated as well. If you are trying to find or reach someone, please call the main office line or stop by the main office and someone there can direct you. During this transition period please email people if you want a prompt response. Not all phone extensions will be working.
We will be posting our new Spring Tutoring Schedule on the Website tomorrow. Please refer to it for the most up-to-date, after-school and lunch-time tutoring.
