It is hard to believe that we are already one quarter of the way through the school year. First quarter report cards have been posted to the Infinite Campus Parent and Student portals, and we are now two weeks into the second quarter.

Since the beginning of the year, students have had the opportunity to use advisory period to get help with coursework, attend a club and/or activity meeting or take an Advanced Placement science course.  One goal of the Advisory period is for students to seek academic help or to enrich the learning experience. Classroom teachers are available to students either during 5A or 5B advisory periods. Students should communicate their need or desire to meet with their teacher during advisory and obtain a pass. Commonly, teachers will reach out to the students needing additional support and use advisory period to assist their students. Advisory and lunch periods are very flexible and allow students to switch lunch periods in order to find a mutual time that works for both the teacher and student.

Academics are not the only thing colleges and universities look for when evaluating a potential student. School involvement and community activities are very important, also. Advisory period provides opportunities for students to explore and participate in various clubs and activities. Our high school calendar, located on the school’s website, displays the dates and times that our clubs and activities meet. Some clubs and activities include Student Council, Rotary Interact, Key Club, National Honor Society, Chess Club, Art Club, Spanish Lab, West G TV, and Science Fair Preparation.

It is my intention for advisory to contribute to the positive school environment and allow experiences for student growth and academic success. Please encourage your student to take advantage of some of the many opportunities advisory period offers throughout the school year.

Have a wonderful holiday season.

Sincerely,
