SRCA January 2015 Newsletter
For most of us January brings about a time of reflection of the past year and resolutions for the future. As parents and educators we want to ensure that our children are getting every opportunity to succeed and we at SRHS will continue to work towards that goal in 2015. As we move forward into January, we will end our first semester with finals on January 21, 22 and 23. School will end at 11:30 AM on each of these days to allow students time to adequately prepare for finals in all classes. Beginning Monday, January 26th, we begin our second semester and countdown to graduation.
In support of our academic program, our regular after school peer tutoring continues to meet in the library for any student who needs occasional help with a class or project. Tutoring is available every Tuesday and Thursday, from 2:15 to 3:15 p.m. .
Our Dance classes will have performances on Friday, Jan 16th at 6:30PM and Saturday, January 17th at 12 noon and 6:30PM in the theatre. We hope that you will be able to attend these events and support our performing arts students.
All parents of incoming students are encouraged to join us for “Falcon Night” on Thursday, January 15, 2015, 4:00 PM in the SRHS gymnasium. Street Tacos are available from 3-4PM along with classroom exhibitions in the quad. In addition to having the opportunity to meet some of our exceptional team of teachers, counselors and administrators that evening, you will learn about the rigorous academic program and all of the extra- curricular activities offered at SRHS.
