|A Note From Headmaster
I hope to remind you in this week’s blast about the recent announcement of an Arizona Great Hearts K-8th grade online school. Our network is very hopeful this new online charter school will gain approval in April so that current Great Hearts students and new students can receive a quality classical online education. It is important for you to know that Glendale Prep will not be serving any distance learning students next school year, so if you are planning for your child to continue as a distance learner, you will need to apply and transfer to this new Great Hearts online school. Our network will send out instructions for this transfer process.
For those of you who will have children in 9th through 12th grade next year, please know that our network will not have any online high school option, so if you are desiring to continue with online education, you will need to enroll in a school outside our network. Again, more information will come out in April but know you can share your interest in the Arizona Great Hearts K-8th grade online school, if you have not done so already, during the re-enrollment process.
Re-Enrollment is HERE!
Re-Enrollment is an easy two-step process:
We are looking forward to the 2021-2022 school year together!
Glendale Prep Robotics Teams
Videos of the matches will be posted on the combined YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1zupSXAAylFyCJVwZbn-2w
If you would like to support the GP Robotics Teams by donating an older desktop computer or by volunteering as a mentor, please contact Mr. Roper at email@example.com.
Senior Thesis Defense Panels
Next week the following students will have their panels:
6th Grade Study Skills Workshop
While the workshop will be directed toward the students, we encourage parents to be a part of the session as an observer so they can help reinforce the techniques and strategies at home.
This workshop will cover:
Students are asked to attend the workshop with at least one parent. The cost is $15 ($25 for 2 or more siblings/parent teams). Space is limited to 25 students, so please sign up right away on the Payment Portal to secure a spot. Registration ends Monday, March 22nd.
Great Hearts Virtual Career Fair
As you might know, we partnered with Raptor Technologies to screen our volunteers and visitors on campus. A volunteer screen is more in-depth than a visitor screen as visitors are always with a staff member when on campus. Therefore, if you volunteer or plan on volunteering and have not submitted a volunteer application, please do that now here: complete and submit a volunteer application. Upon approval, you will receive instructions on the next steps.
If you have questions, please reach out to Mrs. Hayakawa.
Prepared for the Day
Call or email the attendance line, and students will be marked COVID Quarantine Excused Absence as long as details are left in the message so the office can excuse the absence. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 623-889-0822 ext. 4.
