Now we are truly in the home stretch for the first semester. Our students and staff are busy preparing for final exams and getting those last grades taken. The third six weeks is always short because of reviews and final exams. Please make sure your student turns in every assignment and does their very best. Our Power Reviews are scheduled and ready to go. We have just over 700 students that have signed up for at least one review on Saturday morning. Remember that all students attending the first review at 8:00am will receive a bottled water and a Chick-Fil-A chicken biscuit. Brain research clearly states that water and protein are crucial to proper brain functions, so we are actually serving our students "brain food" Saturday morning!
Friday we are on a pep rally schedule, we have a faculty spirit competition, and a send off for the team after school. We are asking that every person at SHS wear green this Friday. Tickets for the game are being sold during lunches on Thursday and Friday and are on sale at the SBISD athletic offices all day. Pre-sale prices are $5 for students and $10 for adults. All tickets at the gate Friday night are $14, so buy those tickets early. This is also a reminder that there is a $10/vehicle fee to park at Reliant, so carpooling is encouraged.
I also want to commend our Fine Arts groups for their recent holiday concerts. The concerts were well-attended and our Band, Choir and Orchestra always do their part in making everyone feel festive during the holiday season! This is a busy time of year and we hope that your family is able to enjoy spending time together.
Finally, please make it a point to take a look at the final exam schedule. Please assist your student in making sure they are preparing for the correct exams that will take place Tuesday through Friday of exam week. Please also note that on Monday, December 16 we will be on an A/B schedule in which they will meet all 8 classes on the same day. Our teachers use this opportunity to talk to all the students they teach and give them any last minute advice and instructions prior to final exams beginning.
As always we are....
Working Towards Our Future,
