True to the saying that March comes in like a lion, we opened the month with weather-related school cancellations.
Parent/Teacher conferences have been moved to Wednesday, March 12th from 4-7 p.m. Our PTSO is kind enough to feed and take care of the staff, so we are well-nourished for our long, but worthwhile evening. We entered into a new term with four new teachers, so this is a great opportunity to speak with instructors and discuss progress reports.
The weather has also delayed our Winter Athletic Awards. This too will take place on Wednesday, March 12th, but at 7 p.m. in the Jane Bryant Auditorium. This season the athletes, coaches, parents, and entire school community have a lot to celebrate. Many of our athletes qualified for regionals and states. Two athletes brought home state individual titles-Abigail Richey for swimming and Justin Trent for wrestling. Each will be honored with banners in the gymnasium and our school board will honor them at their March meeting.
Our fine arts program also had two impressive all-state wins. Ashlyn Belcher made All-State mixed chorus and Cameron Mingea made All-State band for the clarinet. They too will be honored by the school board at their March meeting.
A weekend addition to the school board meeting honorees is Krista Polo. She just returned from the State DECA competition and has advanced to Nationals.
With the weather delays and school cancellations, I need your help in emphasizing the importance of school attendance. Our instructional time has been condensed, but the staff is confident that we will have all the necessary material covered. With block scheduling, there is less time transitioning in the halls between periods and 90-minute blocks of instruction, which is a good thing.
Here's to an end to the wintry weather and March becoming lamb-like as soon as possible!
