Sunday Howl 9.20.20

PTO Meeting and committees- Thank you to all who attended our first PTO meeting!  We had a great turn-out and many parents want to get involved.  Our next meeting will be October 6th at 6:30 pm.  As of right now, we have formed 3 committees.  If you would like to join one or more of them, please sign up using this link  https://forms.gle/nWsXDnsfRvJ8G9aU9


Lunch ordering for week of 9/28 - 10/2 - needs to be submitted  by Thursday  9/24 - link


Tutoring - Please encourage your student to reach out to teachers to get help in classes they are struggling on. 

Parent Survey - Please fill out the term 2 survey for all of your students who attend Explore Academy. If Explore Academy resumes in person hybrid learning for Term 3 all students (hybrid and online) would resume the regular bell schedule from 7:40am to 3:11pm.


Explore Academy is still weighing the decision to resume in person hybrid learning for the Fall based on Covid 19 numbers in the state, mandates from the Governor's Office, the Department of Health, and the New Mexico Public Education Department (NMPED). NMPED at this time has not released students in either Middle or High School grades to come back for in person hybrid learning.


Parent Access for Google Classroom - At least one  parent of each new student will be receiving an invite for access to Google Classroom, via email, by Tuesday 9/22.  If the invite doesn’t arrive, contact your child’s 2nd period teacher  for follow up.  If your child doesn’t have a 2nd period class, contact one of the other teachers.  


PowerSchool Access - A parent of each family, as well as each student, should have a  PowerSchool account.  This website is vital for keeping track of attendance and grades.  Email about this has already been sent to each family (but may be in spam).  Email Newell Ramsey, IT@Exploreacademy.org, if any questions.


Term 2 Exit Exams: Exit exams for term 2 and the end of the first  quarter for middle school will be on Tuesday and Wednesday, October  6 and 7. Please make sure your student(s)  is in class for these days.  Term break days will be Thursday and Friday, October 8 and 9.  


Terms 3 and 4 Scheduling - For all 8th graders and new 9th graders, please fill out the terms 3 & 4 flavor form. If an 8th grade student tries to register using the high schedule form, their response will be deleted and a new schedule will be built from their responses on the flavor form. For returning 9th grade students, and 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students fill out the Terms 3 & 4 scheduling forms. These forms are required to be completed by Wednesday, September 23rd. Please be aware if your student chooses classes that they already credit for or do not have the prerequisite for, they will be rescheduled for classes they need. Also remember to schedule a lunch flex in periods 3, 4, or 5, and a study hall flex for 1, 2, 6, or 7 periods. 

School Lunches:

The National School Lunch Program is being extended into the fall for all public schools.  This means that school lunches are free at this time. Check the Howl each week for the link that provides the weekly lunch menu.  These menus are posted a week in advance. 

  1. Place your order by Thursday of each week for the following week using this link: https://forms.gle/Kmxttpk15Dye5edGA

  2. Pick up weekly lunch order on Monday’s at the Explore Academy  Masthead location. 

If you live too far from Explore we are told that APS and RRPS are also offering seamless meals as long as your child is between 1 and 18 years of age.  Parents / guardians can contact the school closest to them.
