• I CAN. I WILL.  I AM PEREGRINE.


    Pursue EXCELLENCE


    Peregrine Welcome to the Peregrine Wing, class of 2017! Peregrine students are identified by their maroon polos, but what IS a peregrine, exactly?

    A peregrine is a type of falcon, and it is one amazing bird. Falconers (people who train and use falcons to hunt) prefer the peregrine because of its spectacular high-speed dives. These powerful birds can reach speeds of up to 200 mph or more as they dive for their prey.

    The scientific name comes from the Latin words falco (hook-shaped) and peregrinus (to wander). 

    The peregrine falcon can be found on every continent except Antarctica and lives in a wide variety of habitats, including deserts, tropics, and tundra.

    The falcon that represents the Peregrine wing is unique and extraordinary -- just like our students.

  • Tardy Policy for Peregrine

     
    Being to all classes on time is a key component to success.  When students are late to class they may miss daily Bell Ringers (assignments which affect their grades) and instructional time.  Late entries to class affect instructional time for all students including those who were on-time. 

    The following Tardy Policy (revised from the Fall Semester) is in place for this Spring Semester:

    5 Tardies   = Detention & 1st Parent Contact
    10 Tardies = Detention & 2nd Parent Contact
    20 Tardies = Extended Day & 3rd Parent Contact
    30 Tardies = Administrative Discretion (could include ISS or OSS)
    40 (+) Tardies = Administrative Discretion

    Being On-Time (or late) is a HABIT!!!!

  • Counselor Corner by Mrs. Christodoulou 

     
    THE END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR IS RAPIDLY APPROACHING!!  EOC (End of Course Exams) are just around the corner.  NEVER GIVE UP: It is not too late to work hard and pass each class. Therefore, it is important that students focus on keeping their grades up. 

    3 Keys to Success are:
    Come to school everyday
    Be on time for all classes
    Focus and be Engaged in all classes

    Information on Summer School will be coming in early May.  Stay tuned...

    So why the focus on GPA??

    The big buzz word this year is GPA or Grade Point Average.  Mrs. Lee and Mr. Leonard (ACT Prep teachers) are once again having students caluculate their GPA from their current grades.  Students are documenting this GPA on the same sheet they used last semester and are able to track their progress over the school year.  This is an important step in College and Career Readiness.

    As always, please contact me if you would like additional information or assistance.
