Students are allowed to bring water bottles to school and may keep them filled with water to help them stay hydrated. Due to the abuse of bottle privileges by students (bottles filled with juice, soda, sports drinks, even coffee!) ALL water bottles must be CLEAR so that staff members can see the contents of the bottle at a glance.
Just a reminder that the use of cell phones during the school day is not allowed, unless special permission has been granted by a staff member. Your phones may be used at the bus ramp prior to 7:45 am and after 2:50 pm (1:45 pm Wednesdays) for COMMUNICATION purposes only with parents, coaches, etc. provided that you let a staff member at the bus ramp know your intentions.

What is ALEKS?
From the aleks.com website:
Assessment and LEarning in Knowledge Spaces (ALEKS) is a Web-based, artificially intelligent assessment and learning system. ALEKS uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately determine exactly what a student knows and doesn’t know in a course. ALEKS then instructs the student on the topics she is most ready to learn. As a student works through a course, ALEKS periodically reassesses the student to ensure that topics learned are also retained. ALEKS courses are very complete in their topic coverage and ALEKS avoids multiple-choice questions. A student who shows a high level of mastery of an ALEKS course will be successful in the actual course she is taking.
