PATRIOT PRIDE EXPRESS Issue 16 – December 2nd, 2016



Below, please find a preview of the week to come as well as a few reminders & highlights:

IMPORTANT: Add/Drop Class Deadline

  • December 16 is the last day to drop a course without it showing up on a student’s transcript.
  • If a course is dropped after December 16, the course will appear on the student’s transcript and show whether or not the student was passing or failing at the time of the withdrawal (WP: Withdraw Pass, WF: Withdraw Fail).
  • If a student drops a course in which they are failing after December 16, a 0 will be calculated into the student’s Cumulative GPA.

Dress Code Reminder

  • Students should always remove hats and keep them off when inside of the school building.
  • This expectation has been solidly established this first quarter and regular reminders from school staff should no longer be needed. Please remind your student at home.
  • Beginning Wednesday November 30th, any student forgetting this dress code directive their first time will be asked to give his/her hat to an administrator until afternoon dismissal.
  • One the second time, the hat will be held until an administrator arranges for a parent pick up of the item.
  • We appreciate everyone’s cooperation in this matter.

SCA Holiday Meal

  • Each year the SCA hosts a custodial dinner before winter break.
  • The custodial staff does so much for our school and we use this opportunity to thank them and show our appreciation.
  • The SCA is asking for donations from the community to put a bag together for each custodian to be presented at this meal
  • The SCA is requesting eight of the same thing. Any donation is greatly appreciated. We will be collecting donations through Dec. 13th and they may be turned into the front office or the SCA office.

PSAT Basketball Concession Stand

  • The Patrick Henry Boys and Girls JV and varsity basketball season starts on Tuesday, November 29. Come out and support our teams and stop by the PTSA concession stand. We will have sodas, bottled water, Gatorade, hot dogs, chips, candy and more for sale during all the home games.
