Welcome back Sandcats!
Our Secondary School Team is thrilled about all of the exciting new initiatives and activities they have planned and are looking forward to an amazing 2017-2018 academic year. This year we will continue to build upon our best practices and also roll out the following: CAS CATS homeroom program; STEM lessons in all subjects; the Regents Program; House Points and Spirit; regularly scheduled parent workshops and Sandcat Soundbites, just to name a few.
A main focus this year will be on communication. Not only communication between students and teachers but also between teachers, parents, senior leaders, students and the wider community. We will start this initiative by hosting bi-weekly information sessions for parents regarding topics of interest such as, Understanding the American Credit System, and many more. Be on the lookout for weekly videos highlighting our recent successes as well as upcoming events.
One important document I would like to bring your attention to is the Secondary School Handbook, which can be found on our website under the ‘Student Services’ section. This piece of information should be your “go to” guide for everything from student dress requirements to the mobile electronic device policy. While much of this information will be disseminated to the students during the first week of school, we kindly request that you and your child/teenager take some time to read through the handbook and become familiar with the policies and procedures.
Please feel free to contact me at any time if you have any questions or concerns and we will be happy to assist.
