Friday Family Newsletter 10/29/21

October 29, 2021

Dear MHS Families, 

Happy Friday! I hope all is well with you and your families.  Hard to believe that we are approaching the end of 1st quarter! I want to take this opportunity to say how grateful I am to work with students who are brilliant, beautiful, and brimming with promise on a daily basis.  Thank you for entrusting me with your “gifts” at Maritime HS.

On a personal note, we are beginning to see some interesting behaviors arise in our school community that do not reflect the vision for MHS. Our goal is for our students to model high moral integrity, character, and respect for themselves and their fellow crew members. With that being said, we have elevated our cell phone policy to ensure minimal distractions during classroom instruction. Furthermore, we have created a document that displays our collective Field Work Expectations. As a weekend activity, I propose that you as a family take a moment to elevate and reiterate student expectations outlined in our newly revised Field Work Expectations document. (See below)
