Hello Stargate Families,


I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Break. I was able to relax and spend some precious time with my family. It feels like we are hitting the home stretch in the semester with only three weeks until finals. This can be a stressful time for students as we approach the end of a grading period. Please continue to support and encourage your student to finish the semester strong. I recommend checking Infinite Campus periodically to stay informed on how your student is doing in all classes.   


I encourage you to communicate and work with your student’s teachers if you have a question or concern, but please remember we are all on the same team with the goal of providing the best educational experience possible. We ask our students to be kind and respectful and I ask the same of our families. We are stronger as a community if we all work together.

Rise above,

Rob

The agenda will include: historical perspective, current plans and discussions, nuts and bolts of Stargate's involvement and investment, potential traffic flow changes, safety considerations and long range planning.

Secondary Finals Week December 17-21

In an effort to maximize student success and minimize student stress and anxiety, our finals schedule is spread-out over four days and, as indicated in our school calendar published last spring. December 18, December 19, and December 20 will be half days (8:15 am - 11:30 am). This schedule allows students to have no more than two finals each day, and extra time to prepare for finals/decompress in the afternoon on December 18 and December 19. Please make arrangements for your student to be picked up by noon on December 18, December 19 and December 20. Also remember that students do not have class on Friday, December 21.   

Secondary School Finals Expectations
Core subjects - It is the expectation that every core class (math, science, social studies, and English) give an assessment during their designed time during finals week. Assessments may include a project, presentation, paper or exam.
Elective subjects -  A final assessment may be given at teacher discretion, but is not required of all electives teachers to administer a final. Assessments may include a project, presentation, paper or exam.

Finals Week Stress Relief!

The counseling department is excited to provide a stress relieving area for students during finals week!

 

Everyday (except Tuesday): we will have dim lights, games, coloring, bubbles and other stress relieving items in the college center for student respite.

 

Monday, Dec 17th, we will have hot chocolate during lunch.

 

On Tuesday, Dec 18th, Denver Pet Partners will be coming to Stargate with their therapy animals. We say animals because it includes dogs, cats, and bunnies! The therapy animals will be housed in the College Center that day, there will be two shifts of animals and handlers so the animals don't get overwhelmed. Denver Pet Partners has requested that there are no more than 3 individuals with a therapy animal at a time, this will help minimize the likelihood of of the animals becoming overwhelmed. If any of the animals begin to get overwhelmed, we may need to ask students to leave the college center for a period of time.

 

We want to ensure the safety of our students, therefore  if your student has an animal allergy please have your student avoid the college center for the day. We will then clean the college center thoroughly after the animals have left.

 

On Wednesday,  Dec 19th & Thursday, Dec 20th will have snacks available!
