9-12 High School
Message from the Principal - 03-19-18
Dear Tapestry 6-12 Families,
This week let’s continue to think deeply about the trait of Perseverance. Please continue to encourage our scholars to work hard even when faced with adversity.
“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.” - Pele
Tapestry has raised over 3,500 dollars to allow for students to participate in the March For Our Lives protest in Washington DC. Students and parents who have expressed interest will be notified by Monday if they have been selected to attend. If selected, there will be an informational meeting scheduled on Wednesday, at 5:00 pm in the High School Library.
With every attempt to communicate often and openly about how decisions are made at Tapestry please see our shared Family Handbook. The handbook includes important information including our code of conduct and grading policies. The handbook was made available to all students and families at the beginning of the year and is also available on our website. If you have any questions regarding your child’s grades, please first contact your child’s teacher. If you would like more details regarding our 6-12 grading system, please contact Dr. Karrie Jones, Director of Curriculum and instruction.
On Monday, we will have a 9th grade community meeting to reiterate our behavior and academic expectations at Tapestry. In the 9th grade, we have seen an increase in horse playing, tardies to class, and disrespectful/non-compliant behavior. During the meeting we will discuss our school expectations and consequences when the expectations are not met.
Also, please remind your student that they are not to be on campus past 4:00 pm on school days unless they are involved in an after school sport, club, detention, or attending a school function. Students who are on campus after 4:00 without a purpose may be subjected to disciplinary action.
In the middle school we have recently hired two campus monitors who will be providing additional presence during transitions, lunch, and dismissal.
