A Message from Principal McDanielGo Eagles!

Hello Klahowya Eagles and Families –

I hope everyone stayed dry during our first fall storm! It looks like the forecast calls for sun next week, so don’t put those summer shoes away quite yet!

We have some important updates and information for you in this week’s newsletter: 

  • This week we have begun asking students to take their fall reading and math assessments via STAR 
  • We are also beginning to use Powerschool to report student progress. This is where you will find student grades and progress information
  • Please don't forget that all Google Classrooms are updated each Friday with new content for the coming week
  • This newsletter includes an ongoing Counseling Corner where you will find new topics each week
  • It also includes Wellness and Technology Tips to help support families and students 

We know that keeping up with all of your classes from home can feel overwhelming.  If you need support, please be sure to contact your teachers, your counselor or an administrator. 

Stay safe and stay connected!
Scott McDaniel - Principal

Ralph Waldo Emerson said that, “A good system shortens the road to the goal.”  Take a quiz and see how well you plan! 

A few tips to help you manage your time:

1.    Keep everything in perspective. You're smart—and there are many tools and strategies for making the most of what you have.
2.    Use a planner; digital or handwritten style. Use it daily.
3.    Define long-term and short-term goals (assignments and commitments) and build your schedule around them.
4.    Have confidence in yourself and in your judgement of priorities.
5.    Push yourself and be persistent. Don't give up.
6.    Don’t regret your failures and instead use them as opportunities to learn.
