    Dear Students and Families,

     We are currently in week five of semester two.  Students should be approximately 30% complete in their courses. Please make sure you are following the pacing guides in each course to ensure you are done on time.  We have our students finishing the semester on May 10th. This allows time for students to remediate if they struggle with a final exam. Students must earn a 60% or higher on the final exam to earn a passing grade.  We also have a heavy testing schedule the month of May.  We hope by getting done early, the testing will not be so burdensome on your coursework.
