Happy December! As 2016 comes to an end, we are already thinking ahead to next August. At the high school this month, all eighth through eleventh graders will register for 2017-2018 classes. During this process, each student will take home a four-year plan which must be reviewed and signed by a parent. The state passed this guideline several years ago to ensure that students take classes that match the career clusters they identified. All four years of the plan need to be filled out, with the understanding that classes students choose for the future may change. We will host eighth-grade students and parents for registration nights on December 5 and December 8. Sessions on December 5 will begin at 5:30 for first time high school parents and 6:30 for those who want to walk-in and register.
For those who walk-in and register we ask that you watch the registration video on the www.lemarscsd.org website. The session on December 8 will begin at 6:30. I hope you will be able to attend one of these sessions.
For those of you that have students that are in grade 9-11, I want to let you know about two opportunities available to your student. First, with the assistance of Floyd Valley Hospital and Western Iowa Tech, we started a CNA program during this school year. Students can take the CNA course first semester and then the Advance CNA course second semester. Second, we are starting classes that will lead to a diploma in the electro-mechanical field. These classes will be offered through Western Iowa Tech. A degree in electro-mechanical can lead to jobs in robotics, wind energy, and industrial maintenance. Both of the areas have been identified as needs for our community and through working with our industries in Le Mars, we are able to make this happen. We will also be offering a class on the US Constitution and a Contemporary Literature class.
After winter break, classes will resume on January 3. Semester tests will be held January 11 and 12, with January 13 used as a test make-up day. Students who have completed their exams do not need to report to school on that day. All students will have open lunch all three days. The semester will end January 13. This schedule is subject to change pending snow days. In the upcoming months, the guidance counselors will be scheduling sophomore parent meetings. These meetings are important because they give us a chance to go over students’ credits, career plans, and steps needed to prepare for post-secondary school. Please keep your eyes open for a letter from the counselors. An appointment date and time will be sent to you, but if that time does not work, please call the guidance office to reschedule. Again, I encourage you to stay in touch with your child’s teachers. Good open communication between the school and the family is important for the success of your child. If you need to meet with teachers, please email them or call the high school office to set up an appointment.
