Dear Secondary School Families: 

Happy Friday! It’s been a very busy teacher appreciation week here at the Secondary School. Thank you to the PTSA and community for helping us to recognize our teachers for everything they do for students! Student achievement is one of the many ways that we can see the difference our wonderful teachers make. I am excited to share with you the quarter three honor roll lists for the middle school and the high school. Students in the middle school honor must maintain an overall average of 89.5%-94.4% for the honor roll and 94.5%-100% for the high honor roll. In high school students must earn a 90% in all courses with no grade lower than 75%. We are very proud of all our 6-12  honor and high honor roll students (and their teachers) for their tremendous work during quarter 3!

Next Steps Day: Next Steps Day 2021 was a huge success. Many of our seniors and staff wore shirts that displayed their “next steps” after graduation. It was wonderful to see so many students and staff proudly displaying the names and colors of universities around the country. Mr. White wore his California Lutheran University shirt and I wore my Siena gear- go Saints! Check out some of the great photos of our students. 

8th Grade Moving Up Day: In case you missed it, here is all of the information for the 8th grade moving up ceremony on June 24.

Counseling Center Newsletter:  Check out the spring newsletter from our counseling department! It contains information about the upcoming College Caravan on May 17 and many other important happenings in the high school.

Senior Picnic: Please join the Brittonkill PTSA, as it teams up with senior class advisors to provide the the class of 2021 with an EPIC end of year picnic!

**Parents of Seniors: we need a few volunteers for this day! Please send us a message if you are interested.

Students Against Destructive Decisions: This morning S.A.D.D. presented a mock drunk driving/distracted driving crash. The crash was part of the club’s annual presentation the week before senior prom. Local firefighters responded to the mock crash in the same manner they would in a real situation. Thank you to S.A.D.D. for organizing this very powerful demonstration for our students. 


Health/Wellness: **IMPORTANT** Please be sure to complete the daily screening survey before sending your child to school each morning. Your child should be kept home if they are experiencing any symptoms consistent with COVID. If your child’s symptoms are improving AND they are fever-free for at least 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medicine, they may return to school with a note from their doctor with an alternate diagnosis clearing them to return to school OR a copy of their negative COVID test result. We appreciate your help in keeping our school safe for everyone!
