Pre-registration for Classes
On Monday students in grades 9-11 will watch a presentation for pre-registration. This video will outline new courses for next year, requirements for each grade level, and will walk them through the pre-registration process step by step. For those new to this process, pre-registration allows students to let us know what classes they are intending to take for the 2017-18 school year so that we build a schedule that is void of as many conflicts as possible. Students will actually register for classes later in May.

If you are interested in viewing the pre-registration video, or would like access to the forms students will receive, a link to the presentation will be sent home Monday afternoon.

Students and families are encouraged to view the video together, as many questions will be answered about pre-registration. After viewing the information, please feel free to contact counselors with additional questions.

Girls in Technology
Want to know what it might be like to work in the technology field? The University Village Microsoft store is hosting a free DigiGirlz Workshop on April 11th. This is a fun way for girls ages 14-18 to understand why computer science is important and to use computer science to enhance things they already love doing. Girls will get an inside look at what it’s like to work in technology and see that a successful career in technology is within their reach. The Workshop features hands-on coding and inspiring discussions with women leaders in the industry. To register for the DigiGirlz Workshop, or for more information visit: http://bit.ly/2n56sKh

Moral Revolution Conference March 17-18

Final Exams are Around the Corner
The end-of-semester final exams will be held on Thursday, March 30th and Friday, March 31st.  School is dismissed at 12:30 on March 31st for Spring Break. Final exams need to be taken on the day and time scheduled.  Students are not permitted to take early or late finals except in cases of illness or exceptional circumstances.  Exceptions must be pre-approved by the principal.  Family vacations do not constitute exceptional circumstances.  Non-approved absences result in a “0” grade on the final exam.  During final exams, students are required to be in classes like regular school days.  The regular school attendance policy will apply to all absences.
