Dear parents and guardians,

Happy Super bowl Sunday everyone!  Go Bucs! This week we have our monthly SAC and PTSA meeting.  We need more parent involvement in both organizations.  Please consider meeting with us this Tuesday, February 9, in the media center at 5:30.  We are socially distant and we talk about matters that are important to you, me and our cadets.

Does your cadet like to write poetry?  We currently have Black History Month poem competition.  I emailed every cadet about the rules and deadline.  Encourage your young writer to enter and win.

Parents, we need your feedback!  This is a reminder that the 2021 Florida Parent Survey opened on Jan. 26, 2021. The survey window will close on Feb. 26, 2021, so please plan survey administration accordingly.

Link for parents to take the survey:

Progress monitoring assessments for quarter 3 will be administered soon.  I have emailed all our Duval HomeRoom parents as these are especially important for your cadet.  We will have two Saturday administrations just for your DVHR cadets.  Please respond to that email so that we can plan accordingly.  This is for our gen ed cadets only who are in Duval HomeRoom full time.

Heads up:  Progress Reports are scheduled to be distributed on Tuesday, February 9, 2021. Teachers posting window begins the 4th and closes the 8th.

Don’t forget about the High School Magnet Lottery. A are being accepted for any 8th grader looking to attend a magnet high school.  Magnet Lottery application closes February 28th at 11:59 pm.  Apply online through the parent portal in your FOCUS account.  The virtual booths are still available online.  Go see all your high school options.   Use this link if you want to visit high schools virtually:  6th and 7th graders who are already thinking about high school, feel free to check out all your high school options.  Remember, by attending our magnet school, you have priority preference to all the magnet high schools.
