Dear Stagg Families,
November marks the beginning push towards the end of first semester. Stagg High School offers numerous supports for students who may be struggling academically in one or more courses, or provide additional support for students who are generally trying to improve their performance in class.
As many of you are aware, Stagg now utilizes Arena Scheduling in our student management system, Skyward. This program allows students to sign up for intervention directly with their teacher, and the school can better track and manage the intervention they are receiving. Our goal is to empower students to take control of their academic support choices and plan out their needs on a weekly basis. We will continue to make adjustments to this program, but all indications at this point show a vast improvement in student engagement when compared with last year.
In addition to Period 2 Intervention opportunities, students can also receive assistance during their lunch periods. The Charger Learning Center is available to students of all academic levels to receive assistance. Many of our staff also offer before and after school opportunities for additional assistance. Students should speak directly with their teacher to check for their availability.
During Advisories this past month, much of the focus has been on personal and school safety. Our “Say Something” campaign was a huge success and we will provide additional opportunities for reinforcement of these lessons along with an additional focus on student connectedness at Stagg. NPR came to visit Stagg to learn more about our “Say Something” program! Visit the NPR website to hear and read the program.
Important information regarding co-curricular meetings, tryouts and school events are included in the daily announcements that students receive in their school email accounts. Families can also view the daily announcements on our school website by selecting About Stagg and Daily Announcements.
If you have any questions about Stagg High School, feel free to contact our school at 708-974-7400.
Have a great rest of the semester and GO CHARGERS!
Eric A. Olsen
