We've had an incredible few weeks, and it's unbelievable to realize we're already halfway through Quarter 2! If you haven't done so yet, we kindly ask that you take a moment to review your student's performance via the parent portal as interims were published this week. Additionally, we need your support in ensuring all necessary forms are up to date, particularly the parental consent forms on the portal. Your support is greatly appreciated, as we aim to highlight your student's achievements throughout the school year via our newsletters and on our website.
Our Senior class recently had the pleasure of enjoying their very first "Senior Banquet." We extend an enormous thank you to our ABC members and volunteers for orchestrating such an extraordinary experience, which sets the tone for traditions at our school.
As we approach the end of this semester, we encourage you to motivate your student to remain attentive to academic timelines, important dates, and overall attendance. Mid-term week will follow shortly after the winter holiday break, emphasizing the significance of every school day in preparing for the semester's end.
This week included a remarkable showcase of student talent. We had our first theatre performance in our PATS Center of Performing Arts (our auditorium). We also had our first junior class fundraiser which involved pieing a teacher in the face! Don't miss out on the pictures below.
What an exciting few weeks leading up to the Thanksgiving break! Our students have truly excelled across various sports, giving us plenty of reasons to celebrate. Let's take a moment to highlight their amazing achievements:
- In Girls Golf, Avery Deal demonstrated exceptional skill by not only reaching States but securing an impressive 19th place!
- Our Girls and Boys Cross Country teams displayed incredible talent by qualifying for States, with the girls achieving a commendable 15th place and the boys an impressive 12th place.
- The Girls Swimming team, represented by Ava Baldwin, Sasha Chegwidden, Angelina Insana, Reese Vetor, and Annabelle Weidenmiller, showcased their talent by reaching the State level.
- Our Boys Golf team showcased their abilities by reaching Regionals, demonstrating their commitment and skill on the course.
- Similarly, our Boys Swimming team also achieved a commendable feat by making it to Regionals, reflecting their dedication and hard work.
Congratulations to all our incredible student-athletes for their outstanding performances and representing our school with such skill and sportsmanship!
