  •  Order School Supplies NOW!!!
     
    I know that you are not thinking about school supplies for next year, but now is the time to be proactive and order yours for next year.  Preordered School Supply Packs are easy, have everything your student needs, and saves you the trouble of shopping and trying to figure out what exactly a certain item even is!  All 6th – 8th grade students need these supplies, including APSIRE Academy students. Some things to note:

    * the binders in the binder packs are the Quality Case-It zipper binders

    * paks are also available without binders for those of you who specific binders

    * CTMS code is CRo004 (letter o followed by 2 zeroes)

    Please see this attached flyer for information.  The deadline for ordering is June 14, and the supply packs will be at registration waiting for you!

  • From the PRINCIPAL’S Pen

    Week of May 31, 2015

     

    This will be my last official Principal’s Pen of the 14-15 school year, although I will send out occasional updates and reminders in the summer.  It has been a marvelous, wonderful year with our Wolf Pack.  Our students are the best, our staff is amazing, and our parents are second to none.  Thank you for your support and your participation in school this year. Have a restful summer!

    Textbook returns are tomorrow, Monday, June 1.  Please make sure that your student brings back all textbooks that might be at home. Also tomorrow is Locker Clean-Out during Wolf Time.

     

    The final exams start Tuesday.  Attached is the schedule for the last three days of school.  Please note that at 12:10 on each day, our bus students are released and teachers walk their students to the nearest exit.  Please ask your students where they will be exiting each day for your ease of pick-up. If you have travel plans that interfere with your Wolf’s exams, please contact Mr. Fingers to arrange a make-up exam time as soon as possible.

     

    Attention rising ninth graders: Please help GHS and CHHS -

    TEA forms are required for all students that will be obtaining their driver's license permits, license or renewals this summer.  These forms verify school attendance.  The forms can be obtained prior to the last day of school from the student's middle school campus and will be good for the remainder of the summer.  

    The high schools will not have access to these student records and will not be able to complete the forms for incoming 9th graders.

    August 11  8:00  11:00 a.m. – Student last name A – K registration

    Speaking of Wolf Camp, we need our new 8th graders to serve as student leaders and guides for our newest Wolves.  I will send out a sign-up genius to 8th graders in late June for students to sign up to help with Wolf Camp.  I hope that you will encourage your Wolf to participate in this great leadership opportunity and start the school year Wolf Strong!  Training and preparation for our Wolf camp leaders is Wednesday, August 12, from 12:30 – 2:00 p.m.

     

     

    Summer is fast approaching, and we want our Wolves to continue to read and learn over the summer.  Here is the link to the district summer Reading List, both middle school and high school. Please encourage your students to read, read, and read over the summer months!
