The Bear Bulletin
The Bear Bulletin
Summer Update #1
SHS Upcoming Events:
8/20- Freshmen Orientation
8/31- Opening Day
Looking Forward: My intention is to send out the Bulletin’s frequently this summer as we prepare for school in the fall. As most of you know, what that will look like is still an unknown. Please share these messages with your students and also encourage them to check their school email at least weekly throughout the summer.
Staying Connected: We understand that just because school is out, that some of our students may benefit from staying connected with our guidance and mental health staff. We will be hosting “Virtual Drop-In Socials” on Wednesdays, from July 8th-August 12th, for students during the summer. All sessions will run from 8:30-9:30 AM and will be facilitated by our mental health and guidance teams. A link to connect to these virtual sessions will be sent on Mondays during the summer.
These sessions will provide students opportunities to reconnect socially to classmates, stay in touch with school staff, support issues related to transitioning to the next building or grade, as well as address student concerns related to COVID, distance learning, and returning to school. Students are welcome to attend one or all of the sessions. Please note that these sessions are not intended to serve as individual counseling or crisis intervention. Parents are reminded to contact 211 or 911 for emergency crisis support.
Summer Assignments: The summer assignments for all students plus the specific summer assignments for some courses are located at this link. Please read the requirements closely. If you have any questions do not hesitate to call or email.
Volunteer Requirement: We know that volunteer hours have been difficult under the state restrictions due to COVID-19. Because of that, we will be accepting any volunteer opportunities, even those that are family-based or neighborhood-based. We understand the importance of community and believe it is important to lend a helping hand.
Textbook Return- If you were unable to make one of our textbook collections. You can simply drop it off with the cafeteria staff at their breakfast distribution. This occurs Monday-Friday from 8-10 AM.
Welcome to the Class of 2024!
Congratulations on your completion of middle school!
We are looking forward to your arrival in the fall.
Incoming Freshmen: You can access your summer work at the link mentioned above. Please look for emails very soon regarding our transition program to high school. Our goal is to ensure you are comfortable and ready for high school when we open.
