Each of our four grades have specific activities, fees, and information that they need to be aware of. Please keep up-to-date by reading the information below or emailing the specific faculty class sponsor.
The Big Read: Glen Oaks Magnet High School started a new school tradition during the Fall 2018 semester with “The Big Read.” Students in each grade were responsible for obtaining and then reading a book that belongs to an overarching theme during the first days of school. Throughout the semester, activities have be planned and all content teachers will teach material from the books. During our first Big Read, our students and staff investigated the current debates and concerns related to police brutality. Students have been examining the issue from all angles; math classes have examined statistics, science classes have discussed how forensics work, etc. The students attended a special assembly where they listened to police officers discuss how the public and police force should properly interact with each other. Many of the students will also take a field trip to see the new movie, The Hate U Give, when it is released into the movie theaters. Our students and staff have been extremely excited about this new effort, and we look forward to another Big Read soon! The books that the students read during the first six weeks are the following:
9th grade: Dear Martin by Nic Stone
10th grade: Tyler Johnson was Here by Jay Coles
11th grade and Advanced Placement: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
12th grade: All American Boys by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely
Junior Class: Our junior class is set for an exciting year in 2018-2019. The class sponsor continues to be Ms. White, our art teacher. Students can look forward to traditions including, but not limited to: the Junior-Senior Prom, which the junior class sponsors, a ring ceremony at the end of the year, the Junior-Senior Lock-in, and the Junior Take-Over Event. Students are expected to pay their junior fees in a timely manner if they wish for these activities to take place; fees can be paid all-at-once or in installments. Please see Ms. White with any questions or concerns.
Senior Class: Our seniors had a wonderful time participating in the junior traditions, and they are especially looking forward to the traditions of their last year of high school. The class sponsor continues to be Ms. LeBlanc, our English IV teacher. Traditions for this special year include, but are not limited to, the following: the Junior-Senior Lock-in, Prom, graduation-day rehearsal, graduation, selecting and ordering graduation supplies, and voting on senior superlatives. Seniors need to pay attention to when meetings with Herff Jones and Career Compass are scheduled! Students are expected to pay their senior fees in a timely manner if they wish for these activities to take place. They also need to remember to pay off any old, outstanding debts as well. See the graduation page for more details.
