The Fourth Quarter is quickly moving along. Please be sure to check PowerSchool for current grades and contact the teachers with any concerns. During Mr. Altschuler's leave, Ms. Nicoletti will be teaching his first and third periods, Ms. Markley will teach his period 2, and Mr. Hobbins will teach period 8. We thank these teachers for their generosity in taking on additional courses. We appreciate the understanding and patience of the families as well.
Final exams will begin May 30. Final exams make up ten percent (10%) of the final average for the course. Underclassmen taking courses with seniors will take their exams for those classes during the senior exam period. Exams for underclassmen, except for PE/Health, Fine Arts, BCIT, Math, ELA, and any mixed classes with seniors, will occur on June 6 & 7.
Seniors will take their Social Studies, World Language, PE/Health, and Fine Arts exams during classes on May 30. Underclassmen in PE/Health and Fine Arts classes will take them on May 30 as well.
Seniors will take their Science, Theology, and BCIT exams during classes on May 31. Underclassmen in BCIT classes will take their exams on May 31 as well.
All students will take their Math and ELA exam on June 1. Students will be dismissed at 11:15 AM on June 1.
Underclassmen will take their Social Studies and Theology exams on June 6. Dismissal will be 10:30 AM.
Students are off for graduation on June 7.
Underclassmen will take their Science and World Language exams on June 8. Laptops will be collected following the last exam. Dismissal will be 11:30 AM.
Students will have off on Monday, June 12. Students will report to school for their last day on June 13. Dismissal will be 12 Noon.
Exams must be taken on their exam day. Anyone who misses an exam needs to submit a medical note and take the exam on the exam make-up day, which is June 2 for the seniors and June 9 for the underclassmen. Failure to take an exam will result in an exam grade of 0.
Students are encouraged to contact their teachers if they begin struggling in any of their classes. Math tutoring is available before and after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays through the math department. NHS tutoring is available as well for all subjects. Please sign up for a tutor using this link. If there is an issue with any class or teacher, the proper protocol is for the student/parent to contact the teacher. If not resolved, the student/parent should contact the department chair. Usually these steps are sufficient but if not, the next recourse would be to contact Ms. Kelly in Academic Affairs. The student's guidance counselor is also an excellent resource in problem-solving any issues.
Course selection ended on March 20. Course selection appointments began on February 21. Students chose their classes with the counselor. A form of the selected courses was printed for the student to take home. Both the student and the parent needed to sign that form and return it to the Academic Affairs Office to complete the course selection process. Students will be rostered in the order in which the signed forms are returned.
2022-2023 School Year
Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! We hope you enjoyed your summer vacation and that you took some time to rest and reflect on this past year. High school is such a critical time and there are supports in place for the student body in Guidance, Academics and Ministry. Make sure you take every advantage offered to you as it only helps you grow outside your comfort zone, achieve your personal goals, and further your relationship with Jesus.
We encourage you to strive for excellence in your academic studies. Be sure to schedule time each day for homework (reading, studying and reviewing the day’s lessons). Students will be utilizing their school issued laptops in class and for homework. Be sure to use them responsibly and do not get distracted from your educational goals!
Rosters were emailed August 17 if there were no holds due to finances, technology, or missing textbooks. The classes listed are based on your spring selections as well as the courses you are required to take and fit into the overall master schedule. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to help you. While we would be glad to adjust your roster in the case of an error, because classes are filled to capacity, we are unable to adjust rosters to accommodate teacher requests, lunch preference, etc. Any student who has a NECESSARY roster change must complete the course change request form on the Academic page of the website and email it to [email protected] as soon as possible. Please note that changes to honors or AP courses must have a teacher recommendation or the approval of the department chair. We are unable to adjust course levels without those. No requests to change courses will be honored after September 16, 2022.
