Sunday Shout-Out – Week of November 20, 2016: Good afternoon Northeast Family and Friends. Here is our Northeast “Shout Out” for this week of Thanksgiving. It is a very short week but a very busy week starting with our Academic Progress Monitoring Breakfast (aka Honor Roll Breakfast) for 6th grade students beginning our week tomorrow morning at 7:30 a.m. It is always a pleasure to begin our week recognizing students that put forth their best effort to successfully achieve Honor Roll. Our 7th and 8th grade breakfast is then on Tuesday. Both Monday and Tuesday are half days for students, and dismissal is at 11:30 both days so that teachers can prepare for our Student Led Conferences. Monday’s conferences are scheduled from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and Tuesday’s conferences are from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. We hope to see everyone sometime during those two days. If you have not yet scheduled to be at school with your child at some point Monday or Tuesday, please reach out with an email or a phone call to your child’s academic team leader or guidance counselor. We all need to work together to maximize our children’s learning to give our children the best opportunity to achieve great success!!
This week we start practices for the beginning of our winter sports seasons. We had close to 100 children try-out for our boys and girls basketball teams, which is quite impressive. If your child was one of the children let go by our coaches, please remind them that Michael Jordan was cut from his Junior High School team when he was their age. Finally, schools will be closed Wednesday, November 23rd until we reopen for school Tuesday, the 29th. May everyone have a most pleasant Thanksgiving Break and enjoy the meaning of Thanksgiving, family and friends!
