Week of September 12


Report card for first six weeks - posted to CTLS 9/13
Good afternoon Campbell families,

We wanted to inform you that on Friday, September 9,  the first six weeks grading period ended. Teachers have posted grades, and the report card for the first six weeks is now available to view on Parentvue and Studentvue.  If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to the classroom teacher or your student's counselor.

There are 12 weeks remaining in the semester, so students have plenty of time to pull up their grades.  Students have the opportunity to attend Power Surge on certain Saturdays to makeup their assignments, work on missing work or missing tests. Content teachers will be available to assist with assignments. Students are asked to bring their laptops. The dates and subjects covered are on the attached Power Surge Flyer. Please make sure that your student takes advantage of this opportunity.  Dr. Watkins

We want to thank everyone who helped to make last week's Homecoming festivities a huge success! Friday's Pep Rally was an overwhelmingly exciting event for all 2,900 students in the Gwyn-McClure gym as we celebrated all of our fall sports athletes, cheerleaders and dancers. Our varsity football team and coaches led us to victory over Miller Grove 34-30 at Friday's football game. Finally, all grade levels participated in the Homecoming dance on Saturday night and students had a great time in a safe space.    A special thank you to all of our parents/guardians for picking up your student in a timely manner after both the football and the dance.

Parents, we know that a lot of information is being shared and we have worked really hard to centralize communication. Please share the information in each newsletter with your student. We don't want our students to miss out.

Power Surge Saturdays are back!  Students can work on missed assignments/assessments with content teachers from 9-noon on specified Saturdays.  Our first Power Surge will be for English and Science classes on September 17th!  No registration is needed - please enter by the main office. There is a flyer attached with the dates. 

Thank you,
Dr. Watkins
