Good morning Falcons, welcome back from a beautiful but cold weekend, and to the last week of the 1st semester. I hope that you haven’t waited until the last minute to get your work done or to meet with your teachers, but if you did, now is the time to fix it. There are plenty of ways to get extra help, including ESPN, signing up for Wednesdays, attending office hours, and of course just being present and engaged in your scheduled classes.
Also, despite good overall numbers in our area, as we have seen recently, COVID-19 is still very much an issue that needs our constant attention. We have been very fortunate that so far, the cases in school have been isolated to individual cases. The only way we can keep isolated cases from spreading is to make sure that we are all 6 feet apart, are wearing our masks, washing and sanitizing our hands, and are avoiding multi-family gatherings outside of school. Please continue to do your part to keep yourself and others safe.
Congratulations to the student of the week Jacob Musgrove. Jacob was nominated by Ms. Carrier and has been crushing it this year in all of his classes. A special shout out to Jacob for doing a great job working at the ice rink at Gardner Park! Congratulations to our spotlight student of the week Austin Lathe. Austin was nominated by Ms. Lucas. Austin works very hard in school and is part of the Kingdom Course. He never misses a direct instruction meeting and is a very mature kid. He's proactive with everything, is a great communicator with all his teachers, and is on the volunteer fire department. Well done Austin!
