It's noon on Friday and I'm more than ready to call the first week back a HUGE SUCCESS!!!! Students arrived Monday morning full of enthusiasm, excited to see friends and teachers. Students with a first period on B days made it on time at 8 a.m. with little to no complaining (I'm sure the free donuts didn't hurt).
Thank you to all those who have reached out to share positive anecdotes from your child's first few days. We love hearing your stories and feedback.
As many of you know, we make it a point to recognize students who exemplify Cypress' core values. We encourage our students to RISE by acknowledging them when we see:
Respect for Self and Others
All staff give out tickets to students when we see evidence of these core values. Every Friday we choose a winner and give them a $10 gift certificate to a local business.
This week's RISE winner was Red Jacob who received a gift card to Starbucks. If you are interested in supporting our acknowledgement of students, we would gladly accept donations of gift certificates/cards to coffee shops and restaurants or anywhere else teens are likely to patronize.
Thank you for a wonderful first week. We appreciate our Cypress community and are thankful you have chosen to send your students here. We take our commitment to nurturing and educating all students very seriously, and value the uniqueness and diversity all students bring to our campus.
Have a wonderful weekend!
