We have been busy over the summer. Custodial and maintenance crews have been putting the final touches to our summer chore list. Our English department has new carpet, several rooms have new desks, and our teachers are ready to get back at what they do best—teach. As a faculty and staff, we are learning to use our new classroom management system. It will take some time, but your understanding and patience is appreciated. STI Home no longer exists. In a few weeks, parents will have access to our new program called HOME PORTAL. Information will be sent home to parents soon regarding informant on how to access this site.
This reminder that NO electronic devices, cell phones or head phones will be allowed in the hallways or cafeteria between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
As we hit the ground running, we would like students and parents to keep the following August dates in mind:
August 1 Freshman Orientation 8:30-10:00
August 1 Freshman Registration 10:00-3:00
August 5 Teacher first day
August 7 Student first day
August 9 Football Frenzy at the stadium 5:30 p.m.
August 20 & 21 Underclassmen yearbook pictures
August 22 Senior picture retakes
Log in information I and English 10 tests that were taken last May were mailed home to parents a few weeks ago. The importance of these and every standardized test that is given to students cannot be overemphasized. Last year we changed our teaching schedule to allow for more remediation and guided assistance during study halls. Teachers will be doing a majority of the monitoring and implementation of this learning opportunity for students.
Parents are encouraged to remain an active participant in their students’ academic world. The daily announcements are posted on this web site. The student handbook is also available for viewing. This information helps explain many rules and regulations that we employ to maintain optimal student academic success and student safety.
The Class of 2014 that graduated in June left some big shoes to fill in terms of the leadership in the school. We believe that the Class of 2015 will be a positive influence on all of the underclassmen and will work hard to create a lasting legacy for themselves.
We are looking forward to a great year.
