ASM & SPIRIT WEEK
This past week, students had a blast dressing up for Retro Day, Twin Day, Mix Match Day, Dress like a Teacher Day, and Jersey Day. The week was concluded with an All School Meeting where students competed in games and were given Spirit Awards.
Progress reports for students failing one or more classes were mailed last week. If you are concerned about your son/daughter’s grades, you may schedule a meeting with any of their teachers. Another great way to track your student’s grades is through PowerSchool. If you need your PowerSchool account information, please contact Emma Cizek at the main office.
SUMMER PROGRAMS & JOB OPPORTUNITIES
Does your son/daughter have plans for the summer? Summer programs are a great opportunity for students to gain valuable experience and earn their own money. Applications for MYEEP, SF YouthWorks, CHALK, and Flyaway Productions are all available in the main office. Deadlines are fast approaching!
Leadership High School sweatshirts are on sale for $25. They are available for purchase in the main office after school. Show your Griffin pride!
