Welcome, 2015! We hope that everyone had a beautiful holiday season and hope that you were able to spend cherished time with your children, family, and friends. We appreciate the amazing support that we received for our annual Quarters and Cans drive. We were able to provide assistance to seven of our local families. I am continually astonished at the caliber of students we have at Snowcrest. They are always willing to lend a hand and help out their fellow students.
It is hard to believe that January marks the mid-point of the school year. We have a lot of activities planned for our students, so please check the calendar on our website. January brings boys’ basketball, then girls’ basketball. Please come support our teams. January also means registration and preparation for next year. We will start our registration process toward the end of the month and into February. Please work with your students as they plan for next year.
I want to thank our students and their parents for the support that they have given to our new tardy policy. We were able to cut our tardies from 684 first quarter to 463 second quarter. Students with 4 or more total tardies dropped from 66 first quarter to 33 second quarter. That is such a significant drop. Reducing tardies has been a goal for our school and part of our school improvement plan. We are so proud of our students. Thank you for sending us such great kids.
A new year often brings a stronger commitment to resolution and goals. 2015 will our best year ever! It is always great to be a Skyhawk!!
