Arts Update

  • COMING SOON!  Fall 2022 Artist Interviews!



  • Semester 1 Incompletes & Credit Recovery: Students who did not pass one or more Semester 1 courses with a 70% or higher received a Summer Learning Registration Letter with Q4 Progress Reports.

    • Summer Learning is required for any student with one or more incompletes, including arts courses from semester 1 or semester 2. 

    • Each course is required to graduate and earn enough credits.

    • The initial deadline for Semester 1 make-up work was 4/17. Students who did not meet this deadline can still reach out to their teachers or mentor to create a plan to make-up missing work.

  • HIGH SCHOOL ARTISTS AND FAMILIES - Please keep in mind that High School Arts Classes are the first and second period of school.  It is imperative that your students arrive at school on time so they do not miss Arts Instruction.  Their Arts classes are graded and if they are not completed they will be required to participate in Summer Learning.

  • ALL ARTISTS AND FAMILIES - Please remember that in every Arts class participation is 50% of their final grade.  This includes participating in class discussions, accomplishing all classwork and tasks and practicing a growth mindset.  If you have questions about how that specifically applies to your Artist’s Arts Class, please reach out to their teacher!


Did you know you can check your student’s art grade on Synergy StudentVue/ParentVue?  Make sure to check it regularly for the most up to date student grades!
