We are 1/2 way through the 3rd Module of the 2019-20 school year.  This means,  that our goal is for you is to be completed with 1st semester courses and a solid % into your 2nd semester courses.  If you find yourself near this goal,  good work!  If not,  please connect with your teachers to develop a plan to catch up.  We know you can do it,  but often you need to make positive changes to bring it about. 
A Few Announcements for the next Few Weeks: 
--Monday, February 24 and Tuesday, February 25,  we will be spending afternoon workshop time to talk about survival vs. logical brain, ACE's, and resilience;  the goal of these discussions is to offer information,  encouragement, and strategies.   On those 2 days, connect with your teachers to be sure that the goals given during Blocks 1-3 are 60 minute goals that you can achieve during the morning hours. 
--PT Juniors:  The SAT testing period is coming up the week after Spring Break, April 14-16.  It is a State-wide testing period that you participate in as you prepare for life after high school.  In preparing you for these tests,  we have set aside an optional study session time during the school day once a week .  Details and the plan will be communicated over the course of the first full week of March.
--PT 9th and 10th Graders:  PSAT testing, a chance for you to see what makes up the SAT test that you will take as a Junior,  will be completed on Tuesday, April 14th.  The testing will be done at Hamilton High School.  More details will come later.
--PT Seniors:  If you are planning to walk during the graduation ceremony,  you NEED to have your cap and gown ordered.   When the cap and gown orders arrive, your balance must be paid in full. FYI:  No checks can be accepted on the day of delivery, cash or money order only.
--12th Grade Digital Portfolio Work Time:  We want you to encourage you to work on your digital portfolio.  This remains a component of graduation for PT Seniors.  The last week of March and weekly during April, 4th Block on Wednesdays will be set aside for you to work on completing this work.
