Dear Hornet Families, Having our students back on campus has been great because we have the opportunity to connect with all of them on a deeper level. The ability to deeply engage with peers as well as classroom teachers creates authentic classroom interactions that are powerful drivers for a rich educational experience. Maumelle High staff intends to use this time with our students not only to do better than last year, but to push ourselves beyond even our own high expectations as we strive for excellence. We have Parent-Teacher Conferences on September 15, 2021 from 12:00pm-6:00pm. Due to the surge in Covid-19 cases, we have decided to hold our conferences virtually for multiple reasons (not having to have too many bodies in the building and flexibility to accommodate more families). Each teacher will provide a ten-minute window per student. If more time is needed, please schedule an additional conference at a later time with that specific teacher prior or after September 15th. Teachers will be sending out a google form for you to sign up for a time to meet with them either by phone or Google meet. As our students get adjusted to coming back to school and having face to face interaction, we are working hard to teach expected behaviors. Please engage in conversations with your student about how things are going at school and ask open ended questions that go beyond yes and no answers. We are challenging students to take it one day at a time, but improve each day. Lastly, we are proud of our students who are participating in extracurricular activities. This is a great opportunity to meet friends, work on shared goals, and develop leadership skills. Way to go Hornet Nation!!! Thank you, Maumelle High Administration
