Students are busily doing summative assessments needed to show their mastery of skills developed during the entire first quarter, which will end on Friday, October 5th. Their grades on Powerschool will be available for viewing on October 12th, just in time for the parent-teacher conferences on October 15th, Monday. We hope that their academic grades will truly reflect the hard work, effort and time spent these past two months. If they do not, then parents need to remind their children that it is high time to get serious and work harder for the second quarter.
October 10th and 11th are no-class days for students since their teachers will be busy attending an intensive two-day workshop on Service Learning conducted by one of the internationally accalimed gurus in this field.
