Week 23: 2.22.21

Posted on

Happy Sunday, Seahawk Families! It’s Principal Knight with your weekly Seahawk Playbook. Welcome to Week 23 of the school year.  I hope you had a wonderful four-day weekend!

Here’s What’s Happening in Seahawk News This Week:

1.  Welcome to the first full week of school in the last few weeks!  We hope everyone enjoyed the back-to-back 4-day weekends.  We look forward to a wonderful week in Seahawk territory. 

2. Thank you to all of our families for staying on top of things and letting us know your preference regarding your child’s intention to return to learn in-person or to remain virtual beginning on March 9th.  In accordance with my last notification, we have now closed out that survey and captured all updated responses.  If you notified us that your child would be returning to in-person learning and would need CCPS bus transportation those routes are being programmed by the transportation department and parents should be on the lookout for an update about how to access that information in the coming weeks.  If you did not indicate that your child would need CCPS transportation, please know that if your child is returning to school in person that means you will be responsible for their transportation as no bus transportation will be provided.  

3.  Life Skills Health Program for 8th grade students will be run through SOAR block  starting Monday, Feb.22nd. There are 5 modules for students to complete, and a pre and post survey. This is a district wide program and a refresher from the 6 & 7th grade curriculum. Students can access all 5 modules and complete them at their own pace, this is a Non-graded activity, but student participation is necessary. Good decisions await! Questions can be directed to

4.  Congratulations to all of our Seahawk achievers and award recipients your child should have received their award certificate in the mail by now.  We are very proud of your Seahawks!  Please reward them too and encourage them to keep up the good work in quarter 3!

Reminder news: 

  • Course Request Reminders 

Hello Parents of our 6th and 7th Grade Seahawks! Our counselors have enjoyed visiting all of our 6th and 7th grade Social Studies classes for scheduling lessons.  The scheduling handout and presentation can be found on our new SMS Scheduling Website.  Please find the link here:  Students should have already signed up for their courses through StudentVue with their counselor, however you have until February 26 to edit course requests through StudentVue or ParentVue. Please work with your student to view their courses and make any changes that you see fit through ParentVue or StudentVue on the “Course Request” tab.  If you notice any errors or concerns after February 26, you may reach out to your grade level counselor prior to April 1 to request changes.  However please note that no course request changes can be made after April 1, 2021. Counselors are busy working with students who were absent the day of their scheduling lesson, so if that is your student, their counselor should be in touch soon. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Ms. Collins at for current 6th grade students or Ms. Dabrowski at for current 7th grade students.

  • As middle schools prepare for our students to return to in-person learning on March 9, the Middle School Athletic Council has begun preparations for some athletics and extracurricular activities. In order to be eligible for an athletic activity, students must have a valid VHSL physical, dated after May 1, 2020, and a signed concussion awareness sheet.  Students enrolled in any of the learning options, in-person, virtual, or CCPSOnline, will be eligible to participate. Students must be currently enrolled in at least 5 courses and must have passed at least 5 courses from the first semester to be eligible. More information will be provided closer to when our students return to in-person instruction.
