The end of semester one is almost here. Parents, remember that this is a grade that counts on the transcript. If your child is a senior and has any F’s on the report card, please contact his or her counselor. This may mean that he or she will not graduate in May. For other students, an F grade means that the class will need to be taken again.
I know that a large number of students will do very well on their report cards and I will have 800 Honor Roll certificates to sign when we return! Our students are hard-working and dedicated, and while some of them need a little encouragement from their parents, they are all capable of getting excellent grades.
When we return from Winter Break, we welcome 2014 and the seniors who will forever call themselves, “The Sierra Vista High School Class of 2014.” It’s a happy time, but also sad for those of us who have come to love your children. Seniors: BEWARE OF SENIORITIS!! This is an “illness” that makes you miss school, neglect your assignments, and procrastinate on your projects. And it can be very harmful to your academic career.
