Dear Leadership Academy of Excellence Students and Families:
We are approaching our Thanksgiving and Holiday Breaks. We will be on break next week starting on Wednesday (November 27-November 29) and return Monday (December 2nd). Our Holiday break will follow which we will have a half day on December 13th (Friday) and we will return on Monday, January 6, 2014.
I would like to ask parents/guardians to have a conversation with their son/daughter about the following:
NO ELECTRONICS ALLOWED DURING THE SCHOOL DAY – If students have their cell phones, Ipods, headphones, etc. out, teachers and staff will confiscate items and turn them into the Principal. Parents and Guardians will have to pick up items and we ask that the items not be on our campus for the remainder of the year.
NO BACKPACKS ON CAMPUS – Clear backpacks, small purses, and gym bags (for athletes only) are allowed. Athletes will check in bags at the office or with a teacher. Teacher will keep bag behind their desk.
STUDENTS WILL CARRY A PASS AT ALL TIMES ON OUR CAMPUS – Students will have scheduled restroom breaks (AM & PM) plus they are allowed to use the restroom at breakfast and lunch. Students will carry a pass to and from their destinations on our campus.
BEHAVING AND DISPLAYING RESPECT IN ALL CLASSROOMS AND EVENTS –Students are expected to comply with all staff and teacher directions at all times. Please have a conversation with your child about the basics of behaving in class and the goal is to complete schoolwork at our school.
MINUTES ON OUR BRAINHONEY SYSTEM – We are tracking all student time on our Brainhoney system. Each student is given a warning if they do not complete 240 minutes a day. If students continue working below their minutes, parents and guardians will be contacted to have a meeting with the Principal and staff.
Please help us in encouraging the students to continue to work on their online courses daily for at least 4 to 6 hours a day. If we work as a team, I am confident that our students will be prepared for school, college, and the workplace.
In closure, I would like to leave you with a motivational quote from Julius “Dr. J” Erving, a famous and former NBA basketball player that I admired growing up.
“I firmly believe that respect is a lot more important, and a lot greater, than popularity.” ~ Julius “Dr. J” Erving
