A message from ALPHA (Advancing Leadership Principles of Heritage Athletes)

Two weeks ago, former Silverbacks (current Heritage HS students) visited Frontier and volunteered in classrooms.  They are part of an organization called ALPHA and have created a message specifically for Frontier staff, inviting us to a cornhole tournament on Friday evening, March 23rd, to raise money for autism awareness.  Please see the video below and sign up for the tournament at http://tinyurl.com/HHScornhole

Watch below (one staff member gets a special shoutout)

Coming soon:  Parent Teacher Conferences!

As mentioned a couple of weeks back, conferences are fast approaching.  Please be sure to connect with any student/family that is at risk academically (D/F grades) or is warranting any other need for a conference.  The spreadsheet to sign up for conferences can be located here.

Please reach out to families of students at risk of/currently failing – it is important that we don’t assume they know their student is struggling and/or will automatically attend Conferences in the Round.  If the student is failing, please arrange to conference with the family or ensure they are coming to CITR.

Monday Motivation

Today’s Monday motivation comes from our very own students.  Last Friday, while many of us set sail to the weekend, our 8th grade Basketball players, managers, and coaches chartered a bus and spent the evening at the Clark County Food Bank.  In an act of service, these amazing Silverbacks packaged over 4,600 pounds of food for families in need.  I must have told anyone that would be willing to listen to me this weekend about this.  Unbelievable!!!!

Today’s motivation is simple – our kids are capable of so much.  Given the opportunity, they can surely rise to the occasion.  These 8th graders are certainly setting a positive example and raising the bar.  Bravo!  I would love to extend this challenge to other groups/grade levels!

Shoutout to coaches Mike Smith (Marrion Elementary) and our own Andrew Lovin for facilitating this opportunity!
