As we enter the month of October, it is hard to believe the first nine weeks of school is coming to a close. The last day of the first quarter is Friday, October 8th. Our students have been working extremely hard, doing their very best to stay focused on their academics. I would like to ask parents to please continue to monitor your child’s progress closely via Skyward. If you notice your child is struggling, do not hesitate to contact his or her teachers or guidance counselor. We want to be sure we stay on top of any concerns before it is too late.
We are extremely excited about our Fall sports. Our student athletes have been working very hard on the courts, golf courses, lanes and fields competing and putting forth their very best. Both the JV and Varsity Volleyball teams are currently 5 and 9. Congratulations to our Boys Golf team, as they garnered the county championship, and have a record of 9 and 3. Girls Golf is 3 and 5. Girls Bowling is 7 and 0. Cross Country has competed in several meets, with the girl’s team placing in 9th out of 23 teams at the Florida Runners Invitational, led by Jacey Lane (16th Place) and Brenna Allen (22nd Place) on the 5000 meter course. Both the Girls and Boys Swim and Dive teams won the county championship. Way to go Greyhounds!
As a reminder, class starts promptly at 7:22 AM daily. Parents and guardians, please ensure your child arrives to school on time. We have been noticing an increase in the number of tardies at the start of the school day. Too many tardies will impact students’ overall attendance, which will ultimately impact his or her academics. Please be mindful and ensure your child arrives on time every day.
Lastly, please be sure to review the “Important Dates to Remember” section of the newsletter. There are important events coming up that we want everyone to be aware of. I would like to thank all our parents and community partners for your continued support, dedication and partnership as we work together to provide the best learning environment and experiences for all our students. Let’s continue to remain focused on what matters most, teaching and learning by staying safe and healthy.
