Dear Parents / Guardians:
Students will receive their first semester report cards on Thursday, February 2nd, 2017, in their A Period classes. On your child’s report card you will see the grade earned and credit awarded. Guidance counselors will be conducting course orientations with students, going through the Program of Studies from February 1st – 3rd in classrooms. Course selections are due February 10th for the 2017 – 2018 school year. Please review course selections at www.londonderry.org by clicking on the high school tab. You will find the Program of Studies link under “Academics”. We encourage you to work with your child and have them consult their teachers and guidance counselors in choosing a challenging academic schedule while pursuing electives in areas of interest. Registration for 2017 – 2018 courses are completely online for all classes.
There were some wonderful highlights in January, and February promises to be filled with a variety of community events. Led once again by Mr. Juster, we are very proud of our 182 students & staff who participated in the Pantene Beautiful Lengths hair donation by cutting at least eight inches of their hair to help cancer patients have access to real hair wigs. For a complete list of donors, please click the tab to the left of the Principal’s Page.
