FOSA 11/18 Secondary Parent Comminucation

FOSA 11/18 Secondary Parent Comminucation

**This communication is for students in grades 6-12.  Information for our elementary students will be in a separate email.**

Dear Phoenix Families, 

We hope that you enjoy this upcoming Thanksgiving Break and are able to spend time with your friends and family.   As a school community, we are so thankful for the students we have the opportunity to serve every day.  Thank you for trusting us with your child’s learning and for being part of our school community. 

When we return from break, there are three short weeks before the end of first semester.   We would encourage students to review their course progress, spend some time completing any outstanding/incomplete work, and stay focused as we move toward end-of-semester projects and exams.   We also hope that our students are able to join us for the Winter Celebration on December 15th to engage in some fun and celebrate their hard work this semester. 

In appreciation,

Adria Moersen Lamb, Principal 

Rebecca Turner, Assistant Principal. 

End of Semester / Final Exam Schedule

    • All high school classes will have a final exam or culminating project

    • All middle school classes will have a final exam, unit exam, or culminating project

    • Students will be required to log into class and take the exams during the time shown.

  • Explore Australia as we learn about different cultures around the world. 

  • Want a workout?  We will be leading HIIT classes for students.
