It has been a great start to the school year. I have enjoyed seeing the smiles on everyone's faces as they explore the new space, meet new friends, and settle into the rigor of academics. As we begin our routines for the year, you can expect alternating weekly communication from Mr. C/C­Notes (all community update) and the Cable Connection from me (secondary update for grades 6­10).

Field Trips
We have several field trips coming up over the next month. Specific information and a permission slip for each trip will be coming home with your students. Please remember to cancel your student’s lunch at least 48 hours in advance if you have ordered it for a field trip day. Please be sure to pay the field trip fee by the Friday before the field trip.

Curriculum Night
Our Secondary (6th ­ 10th grade) curriculum night will take place on Tuesday, September 20th from 5:30 pm ­ 7:00 pm. Curriculum Night is a parent event and due to limited space in each classroom, please plan to leave your student at home. During this time you will follow your student’s class schedule, giving you chance to meet your student’s teachers and hear a little about each class. In order to expedite the process of getting everyone to their first period class, please bring your student’s schedule. We will have student schedules available if needed.

Parent/Teacher Conferences
Parent/teacher conferences will be open house format on Oct. 12th and 13th from 4:00 pm to 7:30 pm. Please plan to attend one of these evenings to talk one­on­one with your student’s teachers.

This meeting is open​ to the community and anyone interested in giving back or becoming more involved in the Stargate community is encouraged to attend.

WATCH D.O.G.S. Program
We are excited to launch our WATCH D.O.G.S. Program for 2016­2017 school year! Several parents have expressed interest in the program and we would like to invite all Dads to attend an orientation meeting scheduled for Thursday, September 29 at 5:30 in the Secondary Building Commons. There will be a brief overview of the program and overall expectations, a tour of the buildings on campus, and pizza will be served. We hope to see you all there.

I am excited for a great school year and cannot wait to see all that is in store for our kids.
Rise above,
