Open House Information and Schedule for October 2

Schalmont High School will hold its open house on October 2. This is a great night to meet the teachers, learn more about the curriculum and syllabus, and it will be an opportunity to learn about the other programs we offer as a high school. We will begin the night at 6:35 p.m. in the auditorium where there will be a short introduction by the school administration. Following the introduction, parents will follow their child’s schedule, which they will receive in their first period class  If you don’t know your child’s first period class we can help direct you, but it’s very helpful if you know that information at the beginning of the evening. view schedule (pdf)

Math department encouraging students to purchase graphing calcuators now

Summer sales are in full effect. Teachers want families to be able to take advantage of them, especially for a calculator with a high price point. Any new student/students without a calculator enrolled in a high school math class needs to be prepared with a graphing calculator. The following are the recommended calculators: TI- 84 and TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition (no batteries are needed). Other versions of the calculator can be used for math courses. These latest models have features that make it easier to interpret and calculate data. These calculators will be the ones the math department is moving toward. If you decide not to purchase either of these, please ask your teacher about the calculator the first week of school.
