Further, progress reports were distributed Friday, December 2. If your child has not shared his/her report with you, please ask him/her to do so at this time. If you have any questions or concerns about the report, the teacher of record is the first point of contact.

As a reminder:

  • All students in grade eleven will continue taking a survey regarding school climate and the overall learning environment at our school (online) thru December 9, 2022. Please encourage your child to take the survey seriously and answer questions honestly if he/she has not already done. We are at a 5.9% participation rate. Out of 392 juniors, only 23 have taken the survey. Thank you for your participation and sharing your voice.
  • The ACT Fall WorkKeys assessment make-ups will be administered to our 12th grade CTE concentrators thru December 9.  Participation rate thus far is 67%. Students do your part.

That said, parents please continue to help us enforce the DPS Code of Conduct by ensuring that your student adheres to the policies and procedures set forth. Students show your school pride by wearing our school colors on Friday. I will see each of you at the River tomorrow. Go forth and make it a great evening. Roll Pirates Roll! Thank you.
