Briefing Sessions for September 2020 Intake
The school year is quickly passing. As we move into March we should start seeing the first signs of spring. The end of March marks the mid-point of the second semester. Teachers will report to parents/guardians on achievement to this point through our Interim Reports. Please review these documents with the students you support. Re-enforce efforts and achievement that indicate success, challenge and plan for areas that success seems more difficult to come by.
One sure sign of spring is the annual school break. It is important that students come back from break caught up in their courses and feeling confident as they move closer to the end of semester. Often second semester goes far too quickly for some students, and they find them-selves out of time or not having enough time for course completion and exam preparation.
I appreciate meeting and having conversations with the families of students that attend Alternative. A group of caring people supporting our young people is a great recipe for success. A special acknowl-edgement to our Parent Association and School Council Members for their tremendous support. Their efforts make for a far richer school experience for our students. These groups can certainly use more support. The commitment is not significant but the value to students invaluable. Please see the newsletter and/or website for the next As-sociation and Council meeting and contribute to the experiences of your student through your participation. Very soon you will get a noti-fication of the upcoming Casino that raises funds to support programming at Alternative High School. Individuals over the age of 18 are eligible to volunteer in support of the casino fund raiser.
As always it is a pleasure to be the Principal of Alternative High School. Please do not hesitate to connect with me with questions or comments.
