It is the goal and belief of the district and staff that every student can learn. Many skills are taught and reinforced through instruction and the daily routines of an academic day. Students are given time to start and, many times, complete their assignments before the end of a given class period. Students need to use this time and their study halls to complete assigned academic work. Every community member and every parent should want our young people to achieve to the best of their abilities. Their knowledge and acquired skills will someday lead this great nation. It is our responsibility to nurture, lead and expect each child to progress towards his/her knowledge and skill potential. Parents need to support this process by setting aside time at home for their child to finish his/her daily academic work.
Teachers offer academic support to 8:10- 8:25 and after 3:30 daily.
A student must ask for help and make effort to keep current on their academic assignments. If students don’t use class time wisely, do not take time at home to finish projects or assignments, do not ask teachers for assistance this could result in academic failure. We hope that parents will take advantage of the professional
