Message from the John Glenn Interim Principal

Dear John Glenn Parents/Guardians, Students, and Staff:

I hope this message finds you well. As we approach the end of the school year, I wanted to take a moment to acknowledge an important milestone for our seniors: their last day of school.

It's a bittersweet moment for all of us as we bid farewell to a group of students who have grown and flourished within our school community. Over the years, we have watched them learn, explore, and develop into the remarkable individuals they are today. Their contributions to our school, both inside and outside the classroom, have left an indelible mark on all of us.

Dear John Glenn Parents/Guardians, Students, and Staff:

As we near the end of another academic year, I am writing to talk about something that may be affecting your seniors: senioritis. Senioritis is a term used to describe a decline in motivation and academic performance that can occur among students in their final year of high school or college as they anticipate graduation.

Dear John Glenn parents, students and staff,

We finished another great week as we inch closer to the end of the year. Most of the state testing has wrapped up as we now concentrate on make-ups for a few of our students. A reminder for all juniors and seniors they must take the SAT, ACT Work Keys, and M-step before graduation. It is a state requirement.

I want to express my gratitude to you, our valued parents and guardians, for your unwavering support and partnership in your child's education. Your involvement plays a crucial role in their success, and we are truly grateful for your continued support.

Next week is a big week as we prepare for MME testing, which includes the SAT, ACT Work Keys, and M-step for all juniors and PSAT 9 and PSAT 10 for freshman and sophomores. The SAT is a standardized exam that serves as a crucial benchmark in the college admissions process. It assesses students' readiness for college-level work and is used by colleges and universities across the country as a key factor in admissions decisions. However, beyond its role in college admissions, the SAT offers several benefits that contribute to students' overall academic growth and success.
