Dear ISA Families,
Tomorrow, Monday, February 16, is a student holiday for all NEISD high students and a professional development day for faculty. The ISA faculty will spend the day continuing a book study about assessment and grading, learning advanced features of our new SMARTBoards, exploring possible benefits of Google Classroom at ISA and preparing for Freshman Orientation (Class of 2019) & Choice Slip Night at 6:00p.m. in the Lee Campus cafeteria.
Our new freshmen, along with our rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors are invited to participate in Summer PE Camp 2015, and registration is now open. Students are asked to complete the registration, linked above and posted in the ISA Bulletin, by Friday, March 6. Space is limited for this very popular summer program, so we encourage students to register as soon as possible and to drop off payment in the ISA office to guarantee themselves a seat.
Necol Harness and Julie Magadance, ISA counselors, asked me to share that registration for Advanced Placement (AP) exams will open on Monday, February 16 for ISA sophomore, junior, and senior students who will be taking AP exams in early May. In order to take an AP exam, students must register through the NEISD Parent & Student Portal. Although the actual cost of an AP exam is $89, students attending an NEISD school will pay only $20 per test because of district support. Additionally, if a student qualifies for the Free and Reduced Lunch Program, the fee is lowered to $10 per test. The online registration runs through 2:30 on March 20, 2015. However, we highly recommend and ask students to register before they leave for spring break on Friday, March 6, because once the deadline passes, we will be unable to add additional students. The on-line registration accepts Visa and MasterCard; students may also bring cash, a money order, or a cashier’s check to the ISA counseling office to register. If you have any questions, you may email Necol Harness at email@example.com. The complete AP testing schedule can be found HERE and on the ISA Calendar.
Finally, this Saturday, the Sophomore Team will hold a Saturday School from 9 a.m. to noon for students who are asked to attend by one or more of their teachers.
Have a wonderful week!
