High School Notes
We are working hard at the high school to stress our MBI philosophy of BE SAFE, BE RESPECTFUL, BE RESPONSIBLE. You can find student made posters around the school that reflect that motto. Students are also creating “commercials” to show how this can be accomplished while following school rules.
The 2012-2013 school year is off to a great start. We are looking forward to great things from our students. The theme this year is “GOING FOR THE GOLD”. We want our students to do their best to excel, whether it is in the classroom, taking a college placement test, on the playing field, in a concert, or anywhere in between. We will do our best to accommodate our students in the pursuit of their goals and achievements.
We are extremely proud to be the recipients of the Northwest Energy Academic Excellence Award for Class B for the 2011-2012 school year. Our students and staff worked hard to achieve this honor. We also have the distinction of having the highest GPA in the state. This award is a result of our athletes, musicians, and cheer leaders working hard throughout the school year on their grades.
A key reminder is that we have OPEN HOUSE on September 19. We would like to see all of you coming by to visit your student’s teachers. You can find out what the learner expectations are in each classroom. You can see student work in progress. You can meet other parents-there are lots of new parents this year. Open House times are 6-8 PM.
Another key reminder is that there are a couple key areas for parental involvement at the high school. One is our Booster Club. Just this summer they hosted the first Florence Booster Club Golf Scramble and brought in over $3,500. There are many ways you can be a part of the Booster Club and they will have a table at the Open House to provide information and sell Falcon clothing. Another important way to be involved is Music Boosters. You will also find more info at Open House for that excellent group.
We also have Homecoming fast approaching. The week of September 25 through the 29this Homecoming week. Volleyball plays Mission on Thursday night and football plays Eureka on Saturday. The pancake breakfast is Saturday morning along with the parade and we really need parent volunteers to help the students work on their floats. You will find sign-up sheets at the Open House for helping with the floats.
Throughout the year, please feel free to contact teachers or the office if you have questions. Starting with the person your question pertains to usually helps you get answers much more quickly. So if you have a classroom question, start with the teacher. If the question deals with coaching, start with the coach.
