As a club we actively participate in hosting fundraisers, decide on creative ways to earn money, create a wide range of beneficial academic and social events and more action steps that would benefit the class of 2024. This club is designed to fine tune and highlight skills such as communication, leadership, creativity, enthusiasm and well rounded knowledge. Please contact me at sencisojuarez@sweetwaterschools.net for more information on how exactly you can contribute to this club and our class.

A MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL ABOUT CLASS CHANGES

Class changes went into effect last Friday.

Due to significantly greater enrollment than expected we have had to add 20 new sections of courses and two new teachers. To meet contractual limits in both numbers of students and numbers of different classes a teacher can teach, we have made the required changes to the master schedule.

Counselors have been working hard to balance class sizes to ensure productive learning environments and to meet teacher contractual limits.

We are unable to honor requests for specific teachers, class periods, and other preferences.

All students will need to log into Infinite Campus to see if their schedule has changed. Teachers will send out Google Classroom Codes through the student’s email that morning.

Thank you,

Dianne Huslin, Principal

WELCOME MS. SANTANA, ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL

Join us in welcoming our newest member to our administrative team, Ms. Santana. Please note the change in the alpha breakdown for administrative support:

MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL ABOUT CLASS CHANGES

Dear students, parents and guardians,


As we end the second week of school I would like to thank you for your support and look forward to our partnership in providing each of our students with a quality education in a welcoming and safe school environment.
Olympian has enrolled more students than expected and we will need to open more classes in order to accommodate all students. Consequently, some teacher and/or schedule changes are required to reflect our enrollment needs, ensure proper placement and to meet teacher contractual class sizes. Many student’s schedules must change to complete this balancing process. These changes will occur by this Friday, August 21.

Dianne Huslin

Principal, Olympian High School

Dear Mr./Mrs./Ms. XYZ,

My name is ABC and I’m in your #th period class. I noticed on Jupiter / I have a question about  a score/incorrect score, for assignment/test/quiz “LNMOP” on 00/00/00.

Can we talk during your office hours, before school, or after school to discuss this? Or, if possible, could you please look into it and email me any information?

Thank you for your time,

PARENT CLASSROOM VISIT

Appointments for parents to visit classroom during instruction are usually done with 24hour advance notice and by appointment with the teacher. We ask parents to follow the same guidelines by making appointments with teachers if they wish to visit a class online.
