Illuminate Student Portal: ATTENTION PARENTS!
Thank you for attending our Back to School Night. I’ve been receiving questions about accessing the Illuminate student portal for tracking your student’s progress.
Sometime this week, your student will receive a brief lesson during class instructing them on the portal’s log in procedures. Their 5 digit student ID number will be their Username and they will need to share their Password with you for you to gain access to their grades.
Please feel free to contact our office for further support.
Six Pillars of Character
Pillar #1: Be Trustworthy
Questions to Ponder: Who is the most trustworthy person you know? Do you have more than one person in whom you place absolute trust? Would you be considered trustworthy by the people you name?
Students and Staff: Friday September 26, we will be on advisory schedule. Freshmen, sophomores and juniors please check the advisory list outside the office. Seniors please report to the gym.
Students and Staff: Drive on down to the Ag Site for the FFA Tri-Tip Drive-Thru on Wednesday, September 24, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. The dinner includes a tri-tip sandwich, coleslaw, beans, and a cookie for $10. FFA members: Remember that selling two tri-tip drive thru tickets counts as one FFA event!
Girls' Basketball Players: (1) Open gym for shooting will take place each Wednesday through October 15th, from 2:00 to 3:30 pm. (2) If you are planning to try out for this year's Varsity or JV team, please signup on Wednesday, October 1st, right after school in the gym. If you are unable to be there, email Coach Crisp at email@example.com. (3) The first official practice will take place on Monday, October 27th at 3:30 pm in the gym. You must have your parent permission form and physical form on file in order to practice. Forms are available in the office and may be turned in to Mr. Ward or Mr. Crisp. (4) Your grades during the second six-week grading period will determine your eligibility for the first part of the basketball season, so be sure to take care of business in the classroom.
Sophomores: Bring your lunch to the class meeting this Thursday at lunch in room C-6. We will be nominating homecoming prince and princess and you must be at the meeting to be nominated. See Ashley Drummond or Makayla Rojas for questions.
Seniors: Come to the class meeting in room F5 on Tuesday September 23rd at lunch. We will nominate homecoming king and queen candidates. You must be present to be nominated. See Mikenna Sims if you have questions.
Students and Staff: It’s that time of year again . . . time for the first library contest. Come see the display for Classical Music Month, and take your best guess at identifying the composers featured above the display. If you correctly identify six of them, you will be entered into the drawing for a $10.00 Subway gift card. “Cheat sheets” are available, but using one means you’re entered into the drawing for a $5.00 gift card.
Students: If you are interested in applying for CSF (California Scholarship Federation) membership this semester, applications are now available in the office. This membership application is based on your Spring 2014 grades. Remember, you must reapply each semester to be eligible for Lifetime CSF membership. Applications are due to the office NO LATER than Thursday, October 2nd at 3:30pm. If you have any questions, please see Mrs. Williams in room B3.
