Big Event Next WeekPosted by Clint Shuman at 2/22/2017
Many of out 6th graders are participating in the Big Event next Friday. I am excited that we will have a chance to go and serve the community. If your student is participating in Big Event please know that if you come to pcik them up from campus they might not be here. We have let the students signed up konw that if they are failing more than one class by the end of the day Friday they will be removed from Big Event and will stay at Park Crest.
Class for next year what is next?Posted by Clint Shuman at 2/7/2017
Your student will be meeting with Mrs. Walker in the computer lab over the next couple of weeks and entering their choices from the choice sheet into the computer. We will then produce a course verification sheet. The sheet will be sent home and only is a way of verifiying the choices that have been selected. It is not a guarntee of getting their first choice elective. We will roll out schedule verification sheets in August.
Choice Sheets are comingPosted by Clint Shuman at 1/20/2017
Choice sheets will be sent home with 5th graders on Jan 24th and will be due back on Jan 31st. So please be looking for these choice sheets. Students then will work with counselors to inpout their choices into the computer system. Then in February they will bring home a verification sheet for you to verify that the correct classes and alternatives have been selected.
Spring Semester is HerePosted by Clint Shuman at 1/9/2017
The Spring Semester is here. It will go by very fast and we have many things going on this semsester. A large group of 6th graders will be serving the community in the Big Event the day before Spring Break. We will have science night at the end of January. We will need to make choices for courses next year. We will have an end of the year trip. Of course we will also have STAAR testing.
Please help remind your child to do their homework, check their grades and attend tutoring when necessary. As STAAR gets closer we will also be doing tutoring geared toward STAAR and be inviting students to attend to make sure they are succesful. All students are offered free snacks if they stay for tutoring.
As we make a push this semester also remind you studnet to always try their best and give it their best attempt even if it is hard.
Where is your jacket?Posted by Clint Shuman at 11/18/2016
As the weather begins to get colder please make sure your student is returning home with their jacket. Many students forget their jacket and they end up in lost and found. Some students do not like their jacket and they end up in lost and found in hopes of a new one. So if your child's jacket is missing you can send them to the lost and found located in the blue bins in the cafeteria.
Enjoy the break come back ready to workPosted by Clint Shuman at 11/16/2016
I hope everyone is able to have a great Thanksgiving break. When your student returns we have 3 weeks left in the 9 weeks. Please make sure they have restocked on their supplies and you are checking their agendas. The 6th graders have two goals we are working on right now perfect attendance as a grade level and all students passing. If they achieve either of these they will get free seating at lunch.
Back to the BasicsPosted by Clint Shuman at 11/7/2016
As we enter the 2nd third of the 2nd Nine weeks I wanted to give a few reminders:
1) Please make sure you are chekcing you students agenda
2) Make sure you are having your student pull grades from FOCUS and the plan they have if their grades are not as high as they want
3) Make sure your student has all the necessary school supplies. (Pencils, Pens, Highlighters, Paper)
4) Click on the Lesson Plan and Assigment link to see what is happening
5) Encourage your student to attend tutorials and EPIC 2.0
Short Nine WeeksPosted by Clint Shuman at 10/24/2016
Just a reminder that the Second nine weeks is short. It is only 8 weeks long so it will go by fast. Please make sure you are having your student check their grades and talking to you about them. If they are struggling make them tell you how they are going to get it fixed.
