Check PowerSchool Attendance Weekly

Parents, please remember to check your child’s attendance on PowerSchool weekly, or after you have sent in a note. We have a very small window of time for making corrections, and we want your child’s attendance record to be 100% accurate. Sometimes notes don’t make it to the Attendance Office for one reason or another.
Emails (to,, or are always a good way to send a note or follow-up on a written note. Weekly checks will hopefully prevent situations at the end of the grading period, the semester, or the year, where we have inaccurate information and lack the ability to make changes.
Students, you can also monitor your attendance on PowerSchool and let us know about errors. This is good practice for second semester when you want to remain eligible for exam exemptions at the end of the year.

Principal's Message

Monday, July 31, 2017
I had the privilege of meeting about 400 of my new students this past Friday at our fourth annual Panther Camp. It was good to have students back in the building after a long quiet summer. A great time was had by all, and we are looking forward to a great year this year with the Class or 2021.
We hope to see all our Freshmen and their parents at the Academy this coming Tuesday for B Ready Day. We will open the doors at 8am and be available until 3:30pm. Come pick up a copy of your child’s schedule, tour the building and walk the schedule, meet teachers, and check out the new 2021 spirit wear.
We are excited to get started and look forward to working with this class to get a good start and and establish a solid foundation as they begin their high school experience. Thank you for sharing them with us. Let us know your concerns and feel free to ask us questions. You are our partners for the coming year. Together we can build for their success the next four years and beyond.
John McDonald, Principal

Freshman Artist Wins Best of Show!

Each year, The University of Memphis’ Art Education department has a unique art exhibit featuring the work of Art Educators and their students. Teachers submit one of their own artworks, and an artwork of a male student and a female student, that represent the concept of “Reflections”.

I chose Claire’s self -portrait to represent us in the exhibit, and she won BEST IN SHOW out of 18 schools represented!!! I plan to share this news today in class.

There is a reception and ceremony to honor Claire and all students who participated. The reception is this Tuesday afternoon at 4 pm at the University of Memphis’ Fogleman Gallery. Your family and friends are all invited to attend.

The Gallery is located inside the Art and Communications building, which faces Central Avenue. You can park in the student lot across the street, or in the garage (for $3 an hour), which is located on Innovation St., right off Central.
