Your AP Scholar for today is: Daniel Nonato-Nonato.  Daniel is a senior & has completed AP Spanish & AP US Government.  He feels that his AP classes have helped him prioritize studying and manage his time more effectively. He also enjoyed the challenge & rigour of his AP classes. He would recommend AP Gov & AP Spanish since Mr. Wright & Senora Holmes are both really great teachers. Daniel has applied to WMU, KCollege, & KVCC. He is interested in studying Business & Accounting.

Your featured AP teacher for today is: Jameeka Johnson .Ms. Johnson teachers AP English Literature and Composition. This course aligns to an introductory college-level literary analysis course. It engages students in the close reading and critical analysis of imaginative literature to deepen their understanding of the ways writers use language to provide both meaning and pleasure. As they read, students consider a work’s structure, style, and themes, as well as its use of figurative language, imagery, symbolism, and tone. Writing assignments include expository, analytical, and argumentative essays that require students to analyze and interpret literary works. MsJohnson hobbies include traveling and playing The Sims.

Winterfest Week is taking place next week- February 11-15.

We are jumping into the world of online voting and all nominations and votes will be collected electronically. 

Prior to the snow days, we gathered ideas for Spirit Days. Beginning today at 9:30 A.M. the polls will be open to vote for the days you like as Spirit Days next week. 

If you would like to be a member of the Winterfest Court, now is the time to ask your friends to nominate you. It is an open ballot. You vote for individuals, not couples. Often people campaign together which is fine, but you can vote for whomever you would like. 

Each underclass will be represented by a 2 person pair, with the Seniors having 5-7 pairs as representatives. 

Anyone representing the school on the court must have a 2.0 cumulative GPA and no significant discipline issues this school year. 

You will receive an email in your school account by 9:30 A.M. today with a link to vote. The polls will close at 1:00 P.M. on Tuesday. The Spirit Days and the Court will be announced on the end of the day announcements on Tuesday. 

If you do not know how to login to your school account, please ask a classmate. It is an easy process.
