Please stand for the Pledge of Allegiance.
Good morning Coupeville Middle and High School and happy Tuesday! In person learners today, remember you are required to attend these same classes virtually tomorrow. (If you are a Wednesday -Thursday in person student we will see you tomorrow! And of course, full virtual remain virtual.)
Thank you all for being here this morning. Remember our health protocols are in place to keep you all safe and you are required to comply with them at all times when you are on campus.
All students please note, if you elected to attend school on campus, that means you are in person Monday and Tuesday or Wednesday and Thursday, you are required to come to the school everyday you are assigned. This is not optional attendance. If you opted in to in person learning, we need you here. We are responsible for you during this time, and we can't allow you to just choose to stay home or attend virtually that day. If you are sick, of course, have your parents call Mrs. Ford to excuse your absence. That applies to all students from 6th through 12th grade. Skyward will start making calls regarding in person learning. Thank you all for helping with this.
HS students, please refer to your emails regarding Academic Engagement classes. As a reminder, you need to attend those classes ONLY on the days you are in person. Remote learners do not need to attend...there is no Google Meet or Google Classroom for these classes. If you are in person today and have me, G Kappes, listed on your schedule, come to the office and we can place you.
Any HS students who need an option for the times between school and sports practice, please email me and we may have a place for you to stag.
And a reminder... boys if you are in grades 6 - 8 and interested in playing middle school basketball this month, check your emails to fill out the Google Registration Form and coach will be in touch. It starts today!
CMHS Dad Joke of the Day:
What do you call a fish wearing a bowtie?
Words of Wisdom...
This is Mr. Kappes with a few words of wisdom.
Former President Ronald Reagan once said:
There can be no greater good than the quest for peace and no finer purpose than the preservation of freedom.
As a young person, you can contribute to world peace by questing after inner peace. You can start to notice what makes you angry, what makes you afraid, what causes you to judge others. You can talk to someone you trust. such as a teacher, a counselor, or a faith leader, and discover ways to let go of your anger and prejudice and fear.
You can also contribute to the preservation of freedom by preserving your own freedom. Instead of making choices that imprison you . . . like the choice to be dishonest, or to take drugs, or to be hateful . . . you can make choices that ensure your freedom to be everything you are capable of being. You can choose to be an honest and an educated human being.
Today, what choices will you make? Take a look.
With something to think about, this is Mr. Kappes. Make it a great day . . . or not. The choice is yours.
