Thank you to everyone who attended and participated in our Student / Parent / Teacher Conferences on February 20 and 25!
As we enter the month, of March it is hard to believe that we only have three months of school left in the 2013-2014 school year. This time of year tends to be a difficult time for students academically. It can feel as though there is a lot of time left in the school year and, therefore, ok to take an assignment or test off here and there. It is at this time very important that our students stay focused on the work at hand. The end of the third quarter is quickly approaching on March 20. Through a collaborative effort, we can communicate between home and school to form a system of support to encourage our students to keep up with their academic development. Please keep in mind our district website and SDS Parent Connect at www.argenta-oreana.org.
Juniors will be taking the Prairie State Achievement Exam on April 23 and 24. We are working with our juniors during our Flex Period to prepare them for this test that consists of the ACT and the WorkKeys. Additionally, Mr. Marquis is currently offering a Math PSAE Prep Class and Ms. Simonson is offering a Science PSAE Prep Class for students who signed up.
Please keep in mind our spring break March 24 – March 28. Students who attend half day programs through the Tech Academy and the RCC Dual Credit Transfer Academy are expected to attend their respective programs during our Spring Break. We will run a bus for transportation as we normally do on regularly scheduled days.

March 8 – IHSA Solo and Ensemble Contest – AO MS / HS
March 15 – AOHS Alumni Basketball Tournament - AOHS
