Greetings Fashion Families from your Principal Daryl Blank.
It was great to see so many HSFI families at our Parent Teacher Conferences this past Thursday and Friday.
We have a short week this week with the Thanksgiving holiday. There is no school on Thursday and Friday. Remember that Wednesday is a full day of instruction. I want to wish you and your families a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday – enjoy the time with your families and friends!
This Wednesday, November 27 represents the end of the second marking period of the school year. Next Monday, December 2, will mark the beginning of the third marking period. You and your child need to understand that student grades are cumulative, meaning that all grades count during a given term. Grades do not start over with the third marking period and there are not separate grades for each marking period. Second marking period grades are a combination of the first and second marking periods. Third marking period grades go on a student’s transcript and are seen by colleges. These third marking period grades are a combination of the first, second and third marking periods.
On Wednesday, we will have our monthly Student Town Halls. All students are invited to attend these town halls during their lunch period to speak with me and other students about anything they would like – they can bring up challenges in the school that they would like to see improvement on as well as things they are liking about HSFI. Please encourage your children to participate in these town halls if they want to speak up and become actively involved in the school.
Fashion Families should know that our computer lab is open after school for students to do any work they need to do and print out anything they need to do. As part of what is available to students, we have our National Honor Society students available to tutor students in any subjects they might need help in.
It is critically important that all HSFI students check their HSFI email & Jupiter Grades everyday. We will be sending important information out through both these tools – if students do not check them, they will miss out on some valuable opportunities and not know what is going on in the school.
Again, I want to wish you and your families a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday – enjoy the time with your families and friends!
