I am so excited to begin this school year with you!
This is a school year unlike any other, and I know that together, we will make it great.
In order to embody excellence and to ensure that you have a wonderful high school experience, I have a few tips listed below:
1) Get involved! We are beginning the year remotely, however I strongly encourage you to get involved and stay involved! Go to Office Hours regularly to meet other students, ask questions during your synchronous classes, and if there are groups and clubs meeting, sign up for one! You will feel more connected to your Panther peers and the community at large.
2) Get organized! Shifting to remote learning is hard! Make sure you take the time out of your day to set yourself up for success. Do you know what your schedule for the day looks like? Do you know where your zoom links are? Have you completed all necessary pre-work for your class?
3) Get support! One exciting thing about high school is that you have much more independence as a student. With this independence comes a great deal of responsibility, too. Make sure that you take ownership of your learning. If you need help, we are here for you!
Welcome to the new school year, Panthers!
