Aurelia High School Principal Dave Hickman has announced the schedule for the 2007-08 school year, and also listed several items of which students, parents, and community members should be aware.
Classes begin Aug. 21 at 8:20 a.m. for Middle School and High School students, and at 8:30 a.m. for elementary students. Classes will be dismissed at 1 p.m.on that first day only.
A "Good Conduct" meeting for all High School students who are going out for any extra-curricular activity (athletics, music, speech, DECA, etc.) will
be held at 7:30 PM on Aug. 20th in the High School gym. This is a mandatory meeting, and the student must be accompanied by at least one parent. Students who do not attend this meeting will not be allowed to
practice or participate in activities until they attend a make-up meeting,
scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 23 at 6:30 p.m. in the ICN Room.
Instead of an Open House in September this year, the Aurelia School District will be hosting a "Meet Your Teacher" night Monday, Aug. 20, from 5:30-7:30 p.m..
Teachers will be in their rooms at that time so the students can meet the teachers and locate their rooms for the first day of school.
A new service has been added for parents this school year - there is now a link on the Aurelia School home page (aurelia.k12.ia.us) that will allow parents to view their student's attendance, current grades, progress reports, and assignments. This will be especially helpful if a parent wants to check and see if their student has caught up after missing some classes, or to find out if they really did get all their homework done in class.
One will be able to see this information only if they are the primary
contact for a student. Grandparents, or other emergency contacts,
will not be able to access this information.
Any parent who wishes to take advantage of this new service is being asked to send Mr. Hickman an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org,us, requesting a password. Hickman will then send the log-in information as soon as possible.
Students can also get their own password, so they can log on to the page. If the student has forgotten their assignment, they can check what the assignment is on this site.
Anyone who has questions or concerns about this new opportunity may contact Hickman via e-mail, or by telephone at 434-5595.
