Message from the Principal
Dear Hornet Nation,
I need your help! In light of the recent modification to our return to school plan, I am asking our students to plan for the worst, while hoping for the best. In that I mean,
engage with your online learning now in the event virtual learning continues for a majority of the school year but hope we can begin our phased return to the building on December 7.
This uncertain situation is our new reality and students cannot wait until the hopeful return to school to re-engage with their teachers, lessons, assignments, and assessments.
You are required to attend every time each of your classes meets. Attendance is NOT optional.
If you need assistance with this please contact your teacher to let them know how they can assist you.
Students, the grades you earned for Marking Period 1 are recorded in the grade books, yes they count! Those grades are calculated as one-quarter of your final grade. For some of you, that is excellent news, while others of you may not be satisfied with what you earned. The good news is that your teachers are working hard to create recovery plans for you. Please take advantage of the opportunities provided to improve your Marking Period 1 grade; you’ll thank yourself later!
Lastly, during this week of Thanksgiving, I want to acknowledge my gratitude to our school community and all your efforts during these difficult times. Our teachers and staff have done a tremendous job providing learning opportunities in this virtual world while trying to balance their own lives and commitments. I am grateful for all that they do! I am also grateful to all our parents and guardians who have made sacrifices to make sure that their child is supported in their learning environment. I am grateful for their efforts, patience, and understanding. And lastly, I am grateful to all our students who have done their best during a difficult time, worked hard, and continue to stay positive. Thank you to our entire Hornet Nation. Please stay safe and enjoy the Thanksgiving break.
We Are....Great Mills!!!
