            As we begin the second semester of the school year, there are many important items and events on the horizon.  First and foremost, seniors must continue their rigor in school as keeping up the second semester grades is important for final college acceptance.  Graduation is right around the corner and grades, citizenship and overall school attendance must remain at satisfactory and above to be eligible for senior activities.  Detailed information regarding senior activities has been mailed to homes and is posted on the school webpage.   

Our underclassmen will begin to focus on their course selections for the next school year.   Counselors will provide students with information about the articulation process.  It is imperative that both students and parents are cognizant of the fact that courses selected at this time will dictate the number of classes offered in a particular course for the coming school year.  Therefore, courses offered next year are based on the class choice requests students make during spring articulation.   During this process, the counselors and students determine whether they are prepared, ready, and willing to commit to the classes they identify.  It is essential that students select a schedule that is appropriate for their skill level and overall time commitment between all classes and outside of school activities.   Counselors emphasize making commitments and finding solutions to difficult situations that prepare students for college and the real world, while building character and self-esteem.

In February, counselors will make classroom presentations after which time students will have the opportunity to select their courses using the articulation planning card.  To finalize class choice selections, parent signature and counselor approval will be required on this articulation card.  Some courses may require approval based on certain prerequisites for the course to be taken.  To assist you in choosing classes you may want to review the on-line SRHS Course Catalog and/or visit teacher websites which include course expectations.  We greatly appreciate your efforts in using the resources provided to select a desirable schedule with your child.  

 Parents and students from Marshall Middle School, along with other area schools, attended our “Falcon Day” on a lovely afternoon in January where the impressive opportunities and activities that SRHS provides for students were shared.   

            Our winter season athletic teams continue to perform at their best and we continually thank the parents and coaches for their support of our students.  It is encouraging to see our students demonstrate sportsmanship, character, and charisma as they compete. 

            Second semester is an exciting time, full of anticipation for what is to come.  As our students continue to work diligently on their academic work, athletics, and extracurricular activities, our faculty and staff are doing everything they can to support and encourage them. As the second semester continues and the end of the year draws near, there is so much to do and take part of.  Please join us in supporting our students and cheering them on to success in all of their endeavors.
