Welcome Back!

 Good morning Mighty Owls - Welcome Back

I hope everyone had a wonderful break and is ready to begin a new semester, a new course, a new chapter.

Begin this semester by starting strong to finish strong.  It is important that you get into the habit of checking your email on a regular basis.  Teachers will be assisting you to begin this habit in checking your email, canvas, and google classroom for any announcements and assignments every Monday and Wednesday during morning announcements.  It is up to you to continue checking throughout the week to take ownership of your learning.

I have three other important announcements: 

Cell phones - cell phones were a distraction last semester in many ways, therefore you will need to have your cell phone powered off during class time - unless your teacher has asked you to use your cell phone as a device to do a task in class and then it must be powered off when you are asked to do so.  You will be allowed to use your cell phone during lunch and passing periods.  Please follow this request - not following this request could lead to having your phone confiscated.

Food Ordering/Delivery -   It was brought to my attention toward the end of last semester that there was a high number of students ordering and having food delivered to campus.  Class time was not utilized effectively by students using their cellphones during class instruction to order food and then walking out of class to pay for their food delivery in the parking lot or front office.  This behavior is not acceptable, it is disruptive, disrespectful to your teachers and peers, and most importantly unsafe.  As part of the Student Nutrition program, lunch is provided to every student in the Gadsden School District and students are required to go through the line to receive lunch.  Therefore, ordering food will no longer be allowed.  

Lastly, the district has provided Assistant Principal Mrs. Maria Legarreta a new position with Gadsden High School.  We are thankful for all of her guidance and exemplary Administration and wish her the best in her new position.

This information will be shared with parents today via REMIND.  

We hope that everyone has a great first day, successful semester, and is ready to learn, take ownership and be responsible for all your actions and learning.

Have a wonderful MIGHTY OWL day!

Principal Liliana De La Garza
