Six Rivers Update: End of Term One!

Six Rivers Pirates!
Friday marked the end of the first term. In about a week, you should receive a progress report in the mail. It is important to note that term grades represent a report on the progress of your student at that time. These grades do not appear in the final report card, but they do provide important feedback about student accomplishments and areas where students need to improve. Becoming independent is an essential goal for our students. So please take a moment to ask your student to explain for themselves their own progress in each class this week. Students have access to their grades through StudentVUE and are asked to monitor their progress in their Study Skills classes. Six Rivers teachers strive to work with families to keep students on track, so if you have questions, please send me or their teacher an email. If you are still not able to access ParentVUE to monitor student grades and attendance, please send me an email and I will forward on your activation code. 
On Tuesday, October 1st, a meeting for Junior Class students and parents will be held at 6:00 pm. Sierra Farmer will be on hand to provide important insight regarding SAT tests and steps toward College. In addition, we will begin a discussion regarding the Junior Class College Trip. See you there, class of 2021!
The first meeting of the Parent Advisory Committee is scheduled for this Thursday, October 3rd at 6:00 pm in room 703. This group is critical for reviewing the plans and progress for Six Rivers. We are still seeking a senior parent interested in being part of this group.  This is a public meeting, so if you would like to make a comment or simply want to listen, come to the meeting. 
Photo make-up day is this Thursday, October 3rd. If a student missed out the first time, we ask that they be prepared to get their photo taken on Thursday.   Photo packages can be purchased online or fill out a photo packet. Photos are important for photo IDs and the yearbook. Don't miss out. 

A practice SAT is being offered to Six Rivers students on Saturday, October 5th at 9 am 
by our amazing Talent Search TRiO Counselor Sierra Farmer. Students will take a full timed test. Later Sierra will review the results with students and suggest resources to improve. This is just an outstanding opportunity to prepare this important test.   
The PSAT will be given on campus on October 16th. The cost to take the test is $18. To purchase the exam please go to our district website at The deadline to pay is October 11th. If you are taking the exam, please remember to bring pencils, a calculator, extra layers of clothing (the gym is cold) and snacks on exam. This is a great way to prepare for the rigors of the SAT.  
Finally, thanks to all the students and Pirate Parents who volunteered at the Hot Dog fundraiser this weekend! The team raised money to fund student activities put on by Pirate Council! It was a big success.
It is good to be a Pirate!
