Another great year at a great school. Your humble blogger will be blogging from another school next year, and this spot will be filled by Mr. Jacob Francom of Troy, currently the director at Turning Winds Academy in the Yaak. I would like to state for the three regular readers of this blog that serving your students as their principal has been an incredible honor and privilege that I will never forget. Thank you.
Final progress reports have been mailed. Three weeks of school left to go and spring fever is in overdrive. We have a few students who will not graduate with their class if they do not pass some of the classes they are in right now.
Mid-term grades will be calculated and posted next Tuesday. If you're not earning the grade you want, time is running out. The end of the year has field trips, three different sports, and lots of other things that distract from class time. DON'T think you will pull it out at the end. You are already out of time.
Troy students have raised $5,703.07 in the last two weeks to support the WINGS cancer patient support fund. This is the highest amount ever raised and the competition between classes saw the Junior class as winners raising $2,127.09. Troy students have raised over $22,000 in the six years they have been raising funds. Congratulations to the students for their hard work and thanks to the contributors for supporting this very worthwhile cause.
Our percentage of graduating seniors is improving. Three years ago, four seniors failed to graduate on time, last year, three. So far this year, one. Let's see if we can keep it at just one. The one is probably the nicest, most polite student we have and we will be thrilled to have him/her back next year. If you love high school as much as I do, you can come back next year too.
we're ready for the final nine weeks of the 09-10 school year. Nine weeks at Troy earns SEMESTER credits so today is a fresh start. Senioritis is a clinically documented ailment that can have devastating effects on those in jeopardy of not graduating with their class. For those so afflicted, there's always next year, and we'll be happy to have you back.
We're not ignoring you. We give our kids (and staff) a week off every spring. It's been on the school calendar since August. Our third quarter ended Friday and we all need a breather before the final nine week push OF THE MOST IMPORTANT SCHOOL YEAR OF OUR LIVES!
