Welcome from the Principal
Dear Parents and Guardians,
High temperatures, humidity, and heat wave were common weather descriptions we have heard over the past three months. The one term that resonated with me was record breaking. That is the term I want resonating throughout the 2015-2016 school year. I want record breaking achievement for our students.
Academic growth has to be everyone's goal. Setting goals for each subject on the enclosed roster is not just important; it cannot be ignored. Work with your daughter to set goals that break last year's record. Setting the goals is the first step. The second step is determining how they are going to be accomplished during and after school hours.
Research shows that students who are involved in activities or athletics do better in their school work because they learn to prioritize their time. St Hubert is proud of the academic, co-curricular and extra curricular programs offered to our students. Our goal is to increase those offerings by increasing the interest to be challenged.
The reverse side of this letter is an excerpt from an article I read in U.S. News and World Report. The three points highlighted reinforce the need for parents, guardians and teachers to guide our students to think about this upcoming school year and beyond.
If your daughter's class schedule includes the first year of a World Language, there is a $17.00 required fee for a workbook needed for class. All other fees are listed on the website.
I, along with Dr. Rose Scioli, Assistant Principal for Academic Affairs, and Mrs. Patricia Dougherty, Assistant Principal for Student Affairs, look forward to seeing you at Back to School Night on Thursday, September 17.
Please contact your local state representative regarding the need to have the Pennsylvania budget resolved. We will not receive any of the state educational monies until this budget is passed. It impacts so many of our programs including the iPads for our freshman class.
Dr. Joanne H. Walls
