Dear Parents/Guardians: Welcome back to another exciting school year! As we continue our work together helping all students make positive choices regarding their behavior at school and during school activities, we encourage you to take time to review our updated Students Rights and Responsibilities Handbook which was updated this year to reflect new state rules and guidelines. You will find this on our website at: bit.ly/TSD_Student_Rights_and_Responsibilities As we partner with you to help every student succeed, we spend the first weeks of school reviewing classroom/school routines and procedures, as well as school rules to ensure students fully understand their part in making our schools as safe and productive as possible. Thank you for your support in reinforcing these expectations with your student(s).

The number one cause of Chromebook damage is dropping the device. Even if the damage isn't immediately apparent it makes a huge difference in Chromebook longevity! The best way to avoid dropping the device is to use the Chromebook on a desk or table, and to carry it appropriately. Students should close their Chromebook before carrying it, and make sure they are holding it securely. This applies at all times - even if they're bringing it to the teacher to ask them something, or bringing it to the library for tech support.
Volunteer Opportunity at PES!! The Parkside Annual Carnival is quickly approaching and would love your help. We need volunteers on Friday, April 19th from 5:45-8:15 PM.

If you are available to help please contact us by email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com and we will sign you up.

Parents of 9-11th graders. You are cordially invited to Tenino High School’s AP Information Night on Wednesday, March 13th, at 7 PM in the THS commons. AP (Advanced Placement) classes offer a rigorous, college-level curriculum. Passing an AP exam can earn a student college credit, and simply succeeding in the class will give a student an advantage getting into college. Approximately ¾ of colleges say that the number one thing they look for in an applicant is how many AP courses the student took. In addition, students who take an AP class tend to do better in college since they are used to the rigorous workload. Students who are not planning to go to college can also benefit from taking an AP class as they teach skills and a strong work ethic. The school is excited to offer multiple AP classes that students can take next year, including our first ever AP class designed for 9th graders (AP Human Geography). In addition, we are offering AP World History, AP United States History, AP Government, AP Language, AP Literature and AP Statistics. We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday, March 13th, at 7 PM, where each AP teacher will explain their course to assist students in registering for next year’s classes!
Juniors and Seniors! The Better Business Bureau “Students of Integrity Scholarship” is due Monday, March 11th. This is your chance to win up to $5,000 in scholarships. Check your school email for details on how to apply.
Check out this High School and Beyond Plan resource. https://readywa.org/beyond/en/ Students you need to continue to work on your HSBP and Student Led Conference materials between CCC days. Ms Dauer has SAT scores. Please see her if you need yours.
