Parents and Families, please check your student(s) grades in PowerSchool as we are preparing to close out the semester. As a reminder, we have tutoring 4 days a week - Monday through Thursday. Those attending are making some big strides and would love to see classmates there to get support and individualized help. If you need help with transportation, let us know. We want to make this an option for all students.

Our team believes in the power of community involvement to enrich our students' educational journey. Over the course of the past month, we have engaged in a number of conversations with parents and stakeholders ... many of whom have shared feedback and input. Through these conversations, we have had a request: parents, guardians, and community members who want to be a part of the daily work we are doing in our buildings. We're excited to invite you to participate in this incredible experience by volunteering at our schools! Whether you can spare time during the school day, evenings, or weekends, your contribution makes a significant difference. From assisting in classrooms to supporting events, there's a role for everyone! Interested in being a part of our vibrant school community? Click the link below to complete our volunteer interest form and help shape our students' success together! We have developed a short Google Form to collect your interest in supporting students so that we can act fast: https://tinyurl.com/Volunteer-Magi-23
We are getting excited to host everyone for our 2nd Annual Christmas Tree lighting!
Good Afternoon! Read on for important info on FAFSA/college planning... Our team is busy working to support our Class of 2024 seniors, but our seniors have been VERY busy also! We currently have around 33% of our senior class who have submitted their plans to the administration team on what they are doing next year. We are eagerly awaiting plans for the rest of our seniors. There are still some Amazon gift cards up for grabs when they submit their plans to Mrs. Kowalski. Mrs. Kevnick recorded a video on FAFSA: https://tinyurl.com/Colon-Kevnick-FAFSA We did Part 1 of FAFSA Night in October. While we were planning for Part 2, we learned that the FAFSA for next year was actually delayed. Therefore, we will be rescheduling the original December FAFSA Night.

🍂🦃 As we approach Thanksgiving week, we want to remind everyone that there will be no school from November 20th to November 24th. We hope this break allows our students and staff to recharge and enjoy quality time with loved ones. This year, we've utilized student attendance data and feedback to craft a professional development schedule. By strategically planning teacher PD days during times of traditionally lower attendance, we aim to maximize learning opportunities and ensure our educators have the time and space to enhance their skills. This thoughtful approach is thanks to your input and support in fostering a thriving learning environment. Wishing everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with warmth, gratitude, and cherished moments! 🍁✨
