From The Principal

Dear  Chieftain Families,


June certainly gave us its best over the weekend as we welcomed a very unofficial start to summer! It was hot, it was fun, and it is tempting to think we’re done, but we’re not yet!  We need to finish the last two weeks of high school for our sophomores and juniors and makes the last couple weeks of 16-17 lead to a great 17-18.  That being said, we have this full week of classes left, and we move into exam week.  The exam schedule is as follows:

Tuesday, June 13: 1st and 2nd Hour Exams (release at 10:28)
Wednesday, June 14: 3rd and 4th Hour Exams (release at 10:28)
Thursday, June 15: 5th and 6th Hour Exams (release at 10:28)

Summer is a great time for students to get caught up and to get ahead!  There’s certainly no value lost in students reading and studying over the summer.  This is a time to relax from our regimented schedule during the year without losing that quest for learning that’s so difficult to rekindle in the fall. Reading every day is a great motivator.  Three weeks ago, I shared the data on using Khan Academy to improve SAT Scores.  Just 6 hours of studying makes dramatic improvement.  That August test is right around the corner, but there’s still plenty of time to put the effort in to see marked improvement.
