Weekly Flight Tips

This week, we encourage our students to continue moving forward with their schoolwork and persevere. To ensure they move forward positively, here are some tips: ask questions while in class, take a break when needed at home, take pride in your work, review your notes often, and be sure to submit your assignments on time. Please support these efforts from home by encouraging students to use these tips to keep moving forward with their schoolwork.

Assignment Calendar

Speaking of using good study habits. The 7th and 8th grade teachers have created an assignment calendar to help students stay caught up on assignments. It is available on the High Desert School Website and in the ASB Google Classroom. Our goal is to have the assignments listed in one place for both parents and students to use as a daily checklist and ensure that all assignments are completed.

HDS Block Schedule Survey for 2022-2023 School Year

As we begin planning for next school year, High Desert is proposing changing to block schedule for the 2022-2023 school year. Use of a block period of time for instruction does the following: promotes cooperative learning, increases quality time with students, helps students focus on specific topics each day, supports implementation of the new CTE lab, and supports time for classroom-based interventions for all students. Please complete our Block Schedule Survey to provide feedback. We also invite you to attend one of the Block Schedule Parent Information Meetings this week.
