Here are the Super Viking winners for the week
Super Viking nominees are drawn every Friday morning, with the winners announced over the school intercom and receive a prize. One of them is awarded the "Student of the Week" parking spot for the following week.
ALL students who were nominated that week are given the Super Viking card showing who and why they were nominated. This is the third year we have been doing this.
Rod HasenbankThe school year is moving quickly as we enter into October and find ourselves just a few short weeks away from the end of the first quarter. October is a very busy month filled with learning and extracurricular activities:
On behalf of the Mission Valley Jr.-Sr. High School Staff, we want to thank you for the support and encouragement that you give your child each and every day!
Surprise! We are already at the half-way point for the first semester. Listed below are some important information points to help all students be academically successful.
Advisory Conferences will be on October 19th and 20th from 4:00pm - 8:00pm. These conferences are similar to the traditional parent-teacher conferences but we call them Advisory Conferences because they are conferences specifically designed and presented by your student with the primary purpose on planning their high school program so they are fully prepared for postgraduate entry into the workforce or into additional education programs. Each student has an advisor and they have been working hard since the start of the school year to prepare for this conference. Your student will present to you for discussion several topics, including, their academic goals, academic progress, their career interest inventory, and grade-level specific talking points. These conferences are a major focus of work and your attendance makes it purposeful for us all. Each advisor will be contacting the parents or guardians of the students they have in their advisory period. A date (19th or 20th) and a 20 minute time slot needs to be chosen. Some advisors will be calling you, but most will be sending home with your student a paper for you to select a time and date.
SEMESTER COURSE CREDITS
The end of our first semester will soon be over. The date is December 19th. This will be the time period when your child will receive their high school credits based upon their successful completion of their course(s). Students that do not receive a passing grade can significantly complicate their opportunities to take elective courses that they have an interested in because they have to retake the failed course’s semester. If your student is having academic difficulty, please use these helpful guidelines for assistance. Use your online access to Powerschool to check your student’s grades… frequently!
Make sure your student is doing their school work. Lack of completing assignments is a main reason students do not successfully pass their assessments. They fall behind in their learning and it can become overwhelming to get caught up, or reach-out of help.
Contact the teacher, or help your student make the contact, for added assistance or information on their academic progress.
Expect your student to attend school and be on time. High school is also a great time to focus on important job skills. These skills include
(1) showing up to work on time,
(2) doing a good job even if you are not doing a favorite task,
(3) respecting authority and allowing assistance, and (4) having high expectations of themselves especially when an extra-effort is needed to improve.
