Message from Joe Algrant, US Principal

While we are closely monitoring the global public health situation as you’ve read in recent messages, we also are trying to operate school in a normal fashion, and to that end I want to remind you about important events upcoming in the next week. On Monday, March 2, at 7:00 PM, we invite parents of students currently in Grades 9, 10, and 11 to an evening to learn about the curriculum for next year and the choices that students will have. The scheduling process has begun and we will be spending the next month working on helping students choose their courses for 2020-2021. Please join the deans for this important meeting at 7:00 PM. Rooms will all be adjacent to Hajjar Auditorium so please come to the Klein Campus Center.

That meeting will be preceded by a College Roundtable at 6:00 PM in Hajjar Auditorium. The roundtable is a question and answer session moderated by the College Counseling Office that will address issues on your minds.
