Great job parents! We have over 70% of Student Led Conferences (SLC) scheduled. We are hoping to have as close to 100% as possible. Please contact Mrs. Hawley at the Jr High Office if you have not scheduled your SLC yet.

We have a guest post today from Ms. Winner our Jr/ Sr High School librarian and advisory for the Maker Space after school club. Check out the Maker Space page on the Library website to learn more about the program and see some videos from activities that students have done this year.

Guest Post by Mrs. Winner:
On Monday, March 14th, alumnus Haley Kenyon an architect/ interior designer working for Alex and Ani conducted a Sketchup Workshop for several of our Makerspace students. They learned how Haley had progressed in college through her desire to be an architect taking advantage of opportunities offered her, and how she expanded these ideas with online tools to combine technology and architecture, which led her to a great job and career. Students had the opportunity to engage in hands on designing and see demonstrations of what Haley does out in the working world. A relevant and positive experience for our students, current and past. Thank you Hayley, Mr Searle and Mrs. Borges. ~ Ms. Winner

By now all parents should have received an invitation, either electronically or by paper, to select a time for Student Led Conferences. Please make every effort to select your conference time as soon as possible. Time slots are filling up.

I am a little bit behind in my Knight of the Month updates, so we will be catching up on both January and February in this blog post.

Each month when we recognize our students and staff, we provide them with goodie bags. The kids really like these treats but our supplies are running low and we still have 4 months of school left. If you have any goodies you can donate that would be much appreciated. We have a few parents who donate on a monthly basis - which is amazing - and other parents who have sent in a bunch of goodies at once. We recognize 8 students and 1 staff person each both. Any treats are much appreciated.
