This January newsletter finds us at the end of the 1st semester, and it is hard to believe that basically one-half of the school year is complete.

Report cards from the 1st semester are available via the parent portal. Hopefully, you will have the opportunity to look over this information, as it contains important pieces of information for students and parents.

The winter months can often be the toughest times of the school year. The excitement of the 1st semester has worn away, Winter Vacation is a distant memory, it seems that the sun has disappeared, and Spring Break is not yet on the horizon. A combination of these things can lead to a student struggling to stay focused at school. However, this is where, through the combined efforts of parents and teachers, students can also really begin to flourish.


I am extremely proud of our student body and school community once again for the Hoops for Hope campaign that will take place in late January and early February. With the leadership and direction of our student council, these efforts truly unite our student body through the pursuits of helping others in need. Although the focus often is on the dollars raised, what I see are the individual and small group efforts that make the weeks leading up to the game and the presentation of the funds as a source of pride. This event reinforces clearly that our school and our community are wonderful places to learn and live. Education, and our community, is strong!


Please mark on your calendars our parent/teacher conferences scheduled for February 6th and 7th. This is another example of the strength and importance of the school community: students, teachers, and parents working together for success. This is a combination that cannot be beat!

My hope is that you have been able to find time in your schedules for family, rest, and relaxation. I have certainly enjoyed the 1st semester of the school year, and I eagerly anticipate the successes that our school will enjoy throughout the 2nd semester as well!

Any student participating in the Spring Commencement ceremony should have already ordered a cap and gown. If you/your student did not place an order in the fall, please take care of this as soon as possible at www.herffjones.com or by calling Mr. Kingsley's office at 574-583-3420. Even if you/your student is unsure that he/she will participate, it is best to have a gown reserved. Announcements should arrive in March, and caps and gowns will be delivered in April. The spring 2019 graduation ceremony will take place at the Elliott Hall of Music on Sun, Jun 2nd, at 4 PM. Seating, which is open and unlimited, is first come, first served.
