O’Gorman Junior High utilizes a school-wide program called the Intensive Care Unit, or the ICU. The goal of this program will be to provide extra time and extra help for students who are missing assignments from their classes. By utilizing this program, we intend to help students get back on track to being responsible independent workers and learners. Parents will be notified on Monday or the first day of the school week if their child is on the ICU list. Students will be required to attend ICU beginning at 7:50 in the morning on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday morning. Please see that your child is here by 7:50 a.m. if they have been assigned ICU so we can provide adequate help to get them back on track. If it is not possible to have them here at that time, please contact the office prior to their arrival. Students will also be required to stay after school on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 3:15 to 3:45 if they have not completed their missing assignment(s). Whenever the missing work is completed and turned in during that time span, the students will not be required to attend the ICU for the remainder of that week. We may utilize this program if your child was absent for any reason in order to help get them caught up as soon possible. If you have any questions regarding the ICU program, please contact Mr. Charron.
Second Quarter Mid-Terms
We will be sending mid-term reports home with your child on Thursday, November 19. There will be a sticker in your child’s planner that you will be expected to sign to show that you have seen their mid-term report.
November School Service Project: Student Hunger Drive
The Student Hunger Drive is off and running! We will continue to collect non-perishable goods or money (preferred) until Tuesday, November 24. The response to this effort has been outstanding with over $4,300 donated and numerous non-perishable goods. Absolutely amazing--thank you!
A reminder that we dismiss at noon on Wednesday, November 25. We ask for your patience as our traffic tends to back-up some on early dismissal days.
