Happy November! It’s that time of year when we focus on things that matter most and recognize the many things we’ve been blessed with. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for sending us such fabulous students. They are amazing young people. You have reason to be proud. We also have the best staff you could find. Our staff members are dedicated to serving your students. From the smiling faces that greet you in the front office, the support staff keeping everything running, to the teachers that stretch your students’ intellect, we are so grateful for our staff. We have much to be thankful for at Snowcrest! Thanks for your great support of the PTO Halloween Carnival. Your support made it a huge success. The PTO spent countless hours planning and preparing to put on such a great event. Our students also take a lot of pride in their part of the carnival. It is great to see all of the support from the valley. Your involvement is what separates Snowcrest from other schools. With the start of a new quarter, we just want to ask you to encourage your students to continue working hard. The novelty of school has now worn off and students seem to struggle 2nd quarter. Encourage your students to use their advisory time. This time has been set apart to complete their homework, work with their teachers, and to get the additional support to help them be successful. We have noticed a huge correlation between attendance and success. For this reason we will be implementing a new tardy policy. Parents will be contacted after a student’s second tardy in an individual class. On the third tardy, a student will meet with Mr. Elliott and be placed on a tardy contract. On the fourth tardy, and subsequent tardies, the student will be placed in lunch detention. We are asking you to encourage your student(s) to be on time. We would prefer to reward them with success and celebrate their accomplishments. Thanks you for your continued support. We wish everyone a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving!
