News Flashes

This past week marked the second full week of school. All classes were rolling out their curriculum to various degrees. Some courses were combining pre-assessments with reviewing the basics while others were in full gear powering through the curriculum.

Loose tardy sweeps were run with only 1 student being caught in the sweeps. Campus will be continued to be cleared each period by staff.

New teacher meetings continued this week. The new teachers or “Flashlites” have responded well to the early morning meetings and continue to hone their instructional skills.

The FLASHES (Families Liaisons And Staff Helping Educate Students) continue to meet to work collaboratively towards ensuring that the policies, procedures and initiatives are community based, meeting the needs of all stakeholders.

Looking ahead to next week, the Cross Country team led by Coach Kim Tafoya travels to Mt. SAC to run in the Fastback Shootout on Saturday September 6th.

With a full week to work with, teachers were in full swing. In Ms. Byrne’s Algebra 2 class, the students were solving Chemistry based problems as a way to review over the basics as related to Algebra 2. This is a great example of cross departmental curriculum. Students in both Chemistry and Algebra 2 see the same concepts and gain a better understanding of the importance of the content.

Last Friday, ASB held the Welcome Back Rally in the Gym. By all accounts it was a great success. The rally was well organized and the students in attendance were well behaved. Kudos goes out to the ASB and ASB Director Darby Schieferle for a great rally.
