I would like to thank our students and staff for a terrific first week as we start the school year and invite everyone to our Shark Family Night this Thursday. Shark Family Night is our version of Open House where families can meet the teachers and have a tour of the school. The Title 1 meeting presentation will begin at 5:00 in the gym, where families will find staff from various departments, as well as information on clubs and activities. Voting for parent representatives on the School Advisory Committee will also take place Thursday. Families can then join us for a tailgate beginning at 6:00 before the JV Football game at 7:00. Come out and join us for a fun night with our Shark family!

Students can pay school fees by cash or check in the front office before and after school this week. Parents can also go to our school website and pay online with a credit card through the new Acorn system.

Students interested in a parking pass can return completed forms to Mr. Hodges in Student Services. Students must provide proof of successful completion of the Safe Driving course, which is available on Canvas. The parking fee is $30, which can also be paid online through Acorn.

When arriving on campus tomorrow students are to check the lists posted in each commons area for their first period class, teacher and room number. All students will receive a new schedule on blue colored paper in first period Monday. The schedules received at orientation day were tentative. Changes may have been necessary to assist with the balancing of classes. All students must follow the new blue schedules provided in first period tomorrow.

Grade Level presentations are Thursday and Friday this week where students will review school procedures and expectations. Other important information, including emergency cards will be sent home with students through math classes.

For those families who were not able to pay school fees at orientation day, all students will receive information Monday on how parents can pay fees online through Acorn. Fees are located on the student schedules. Parents are encouraged to log on Monday night to Acorn, where payments can be made by credit card.

In sports this week Volleyball will have open gym Monday and Tuesday with tryouts Wed through Friday. Finally, the Varsity Football team travels to Tarpon on Friday night for the Pre-Season Classic – come out and support our Sharks.
