Badillo Volunteer Opportunity Thursday 1/21

From Badillo:

Badillo is having a family math night this Thursday from 6:00-7:30 and we could use some high schoolers to help facilitate some math games. The games are easy to learn and parents play them with their children; we just need someone at each game station to monitor. We had some Chargers come last year to our family reading night and they were very helpful.

2016 Notes and Announcements

Welcome Back!

I will publish lists of students who are eligible for various cords and sashes at graduation.  Money may be collected for each individual cord or sash.  These awards are optional attire at graduation and will be handed out at Senior Awards night – it’s fun!!

Grades and Scheduling:

Please note the unique challenge IB and AP students face to begin the semester.  Many students will be turning in significant portions of their exams during the next 2-3 months.  This means that typical end-of-the-year assignments are often given and graded within the first 2 grading periods, not during finals.  The teachers keep a calendar so the due dates can be scheduled to make the process as smooth as possible for everyone.  Students need to be aware of the due dates and plan ahead.

Congratulations!

Seniors, did you ever think 2016 would get here?!  In the next few months you’ll be buying college sweatshirts, planning graduation celebrations, and enjoying one of the most unique and exciting times of your life.  I’m excited to see what the new year brings….
