Parent/Guardian Update 12-3-21

 

Good Afternoon, this is Sean McCabe, the Principal of Spencerport High School.  I hope each of you and your families are well and that you have had a great week.  I especially hope you were able to enjoy some quality time with your families over Thanksgiving.  Below are my update for the week:

 

All Students: First Quarter Report Cards: Quarter 1 report cards can still be viewed on Infinite Campus backpack.  If you haven’t done so already please make sure to acknowledge reading your child’s report card.    Please know that we can set up parent/teacher meetings throughout the course of the school year…not just on parent/teacher conference nights…so if there are any concerns or questions do not hesitate to reach out to the teacher and counselor and we would love to meet with you either in person or via zoom.

All Students: Principal’s Advisory Council: I have a group of students 9th -12th grade that I meet with each month for about 45-60 minutes just to get their opinions, ideas, and feedback (and we eat breakfast pizza as well J).  Any student can join.  If you think your son or daughter would be interested please just have them stop by my office to touch base with my amazing secretary, Julie Hill.  My monthly meetings with them are truly one of the highlights of each month for me.  So again, if you think they might be interested, have them stop by my office. 

All Students: Course Selection Process for 22-23: Counselors will be visiting PE classes beginning on December 8th, to meet individually with 9th and 10th grade students.  Counselors will walk 11th graders through completing a Microsoft Form that will indicate the electives they would like to take next year, and then will have individual follow up meetings with them as well.  For more information, including a link to the student survey, and any additional materials, please visit our website: https://shs.spencerportschools.org/parent__student_information/course_selection_information

 

All Students: Academic Workshop:

            What: Extra help provided by teachers after school

            When: From 2:50-3:50

            Where: Either in person or via zoom

            Who: This is for ANY student who would like extra help with ANY class. 

Any questions about this please reach out to your child’s counselor or Mrs. Sullivan at 349-5231 (asullivan@spencerportschools.org)

All Students--COVID Related Topics:  The district no longer distributes a weekly COVID-19 update, but all of the information is available using the link below:

 

https://www.spencerportschools.org/district/2021-22_c_o_v_i_d-19_updates_and_resources

Our student COVID task force meets every other Monday. Our next meeting is Monday December 6 during activity period in the upstairs library.  All are welcome.

 

Spencerport’s UPK program: The online application for Spencerport's UPK program for the 2022-2023 school year is now available.   Children who reside in the Spencerport School District, and will be 4 years old on December 1, 2022 are eligible for the program. Parents/guardians can access the online application and additional information about the program here: https://www.spencerportschools.org/cms/one.aspx?portalId=432342&pageId=27904584. If parents/guardians are in need of a paper copy of the application, please call 585-349-5156. 

 

Class of 2022: Below are the updates I sent home separately this week via e-mail.  Please note with the cap and gown ordering…you are able to order just a cap and gown for approximately $36.00.  The web site can be a little confusing as it tries to “convince” you to order additional items related to graduation.  These items (such as graduation party invitations) are great and very well done but I just like to reinforce with parents you do not need to order them.  If you have any issues at all in navigating the site and just ordering a cap and gown just reach out to me…that is what I did for my daughter…she calls me cheap…but I let her know it is called being “fiscally responsible.” J

  1. The Yearbook Parent Ad deadline for Seniors has been extended to:  Thursday, December 23rd.  Please note this is an optional feature as there is an extra fee associated.

                Visit jostensadservice.com to create your recognition ad. For more            information visit the Spencerport High School web page under the link             "Parent/Student Information" for more details.

     

  2. Caps and Gowns for graduation: We had our class meeting this morning with our seniors about ordering caps and gowns.Below is all of the information that your sons and daughters should be sharing with you and that can also be found in Schoology.But just in case they don’t share it with you I wanted to make sure you each had access to it.Some of the pictures do not transfer well thru email but all of the links are active and work.

Any questions at all please reach out to Erin Shaw at 349-5229 (eshaw@spencerportschools.org)

 

Please mark your calendars:

 

Graduation: Friday June 24th at 7 PM at SUNY Brockport SERC.  If there are any issues related to COVID and we are unable to hold graduation at SUNY Brockport’s SERC we will hold graduation on Saturday June 25th in the morning and early afternoon in the PAC at the high school (we would have three separate ceremonies to split up the class).  This is our back up plan.  We did this last year for graduation and it went extremely well and we received a lot of positive feedback.  Again, our intention is to move back to our normal ceremony (pre-COVID) this year but we just want to be prepared if we have to adjust and hold it at SHS. 

 

Student Highlights (please note these are just a few of the wonderful things our students are doing within the community!!!):

 

Members from Spencerport High School’s Student Government participated in Cartons for Christmas and bought over 25 gifts for children this holiday. They spent a few days shopping and wrapping each gift for each child to enjoy this season.

Members of Mrs. Visca’s class with help from Mr. Elkins and Mr. Gallina in our Technology Department created this sign for our veteran’s home in Spencerport!
