<ul><li><p>SEABREEZE HIGH SCHOOL December 2017</p><p>CRAB CLAUSE A cooperative effort of Seabreeze High School and the SHS PTSASeabreeze Sandcrabs are held to high ethical standards in our pursuit of academic achievement. As a student of Seabreeze High School, I understand that academic dishonesty defeats the purpose of education. Cheating, plagiarism, stealing, and lying are neither acceptable nor tolerated. Every task and accomplishment will be a true refl ection of my effort.</p><p>Dear Seabreeze family,What a first semester we have had! Another Hurricane, this one named Irma, and all the various challenges that event presented! I cannot complement our student body, faculty, staff , and community enough for their perseverance through these challenging mes. Here at Seabreeze High we have maintained our focus by providing great experiences for our students throughout the various </p><p>challenges. We had our special visit from London offi cially invi ng our Band and Orchestra to perform in the 2019 New Years Day parade. It was quite an event! In addi on, our AMT had another great performance with their rendi on of FAME! Congratula ons to Julie Wilson, our Teacher of the Year, for being named one of the fi ve fi nalists for Volusia County Teacher of the Year! On the Academic front, our Cambridge/AICE program under the guidance of Mrs. Gaines and our new Allied Health Academy under the direc on of Brian Eschen, are both doing well providing our students with more opportuni es to realize their dreams.</p><p>As we fast approach the end of this semester, please remember the second grading period will end on Wednesday, December 20th. Our winter break will start for students at the end of the day Wednesday the 20th and classes will resume on Monday, January 8th, 2018. Dont forget that due to the me lost during Hurricane Irma there will be no Early Release Wednesdays for the month of December. </p><p>Please stay involved with your childs academic progress. We need your support in our Superintendents con nued a endance ini a ve Everybody, Every Day. A endance is the key to success. In addi on to being here every day, being on me is cri cal. If a student is late 20 minutes or leaves 20 minutes early each day he or she loses the equivalent of 80 class periods. Access the Pinnacle Electronic Grade Book to keep abreast of your students development. If you are having trouble and need assistance with Pinnacle access, please contact Mrs. Tiki Pico at tdpico @volusia.k12.fl .us. Your students chances of success are greater when their founda on of support is strong. </p><p>The pathways for success are plen ful at Seabreeze High School. Our dedicated faculty and staff will work hard to ensure that your child will be given opportuni es to be successful and will always be treated with dignity and respect. Please have a safe and enjoyable holiday season.
