Changes to the last two weeks of school!

 

We have adjusted the schedule of online classes for the final two weeks of the semester due to the Memorial Day holiday and the end of school on Wednesday, June 3. On Friday, May 29, zero and fourth period classes will meet at 10am and 1pm, respectively, to compensate for the holiday on Monday. Please note that this will be the final day of activities for all zero period classes. It will also be the last day of online classes for all seniors. All class periods will still be one hour long.

 

The following week, June 1st 2nd and 3rd, all other periods will meet once for one hour during this short week. Please check the calendars posted below so you know when classes will meet during these last two weeks of the school year.

 

Finally, seniors and their families can check out our complete plans for a hybrid live and virtual graduation here

 

We are ready to support and celebrate all our Panthers as we finish the year strong, even during this pandemic crisis. Nothing can stop our pride!

 

Take care and Go Panthers!

Here is a condensed schedule for Advanced Placement (AP) exams. This lists only the exams that were being offered at Prospect.

 

AP Exam Schedule

 

As you may know, AP Exams will be administered online at specific days and times, but the start of Exams has been moved a week later to Monday, May 11. These will be 45-minute exams that must be taken at the schedule day and time. If you are planning to take any AP exams, make sure you put these dates and times in your calendar.

 

You can also download a copy of the AP exam schedule here. This file also contains links to get more details about the exams for each course, access review sessions, or learn more about test security.

 

 

We know this is all very new, and we want to make sure you are set up for success. You are not alone, Panthers. Regardless of the distance, we are still owning our future together!

 

Go Panthers!

Hello Panther families!

 

Although I’m sure most of us never imagined a week of Spring Break to look like this, I hope your entire family has stayed healthy and safe thus far.

 

I’m pleased to share with you two important schedules that you should refer to as we complete the school year through online learning.

 

Online Learning starting Monday!

Prospect will be shifting to a period-based schedule for online classes. As you can see in the graphic below, each period will meet once during the week, either from 10-11am or from 1-2pm.

 

Online Schedule starts April 13

 

 

We hope this makes it a little easier to plan your class time while at home. Your teachers will communicate the format for their class sessions – whether they will have a video conference or a text-based chat or some other online activity. Pay close attention to the messages sent by your teachers – check your e-mail, Schoolloop, and Google Classroom regularly to make sure you do not miss any updates.  

 

Attendance will be taken during this new phase of online learning. Students must show that they have engaged in the work for each class at least once a week. This can be done by submitting assignments, joining a live session with the teacher, or communicating via e-mail or other means.

 

You will also see several Study Hall periods in the schedule above. These are times where you’ll be able to connect with a variety of teachers. Don’t expect all teachers to be available in every Study Hall. Here again, pay close attention to each teacher’s messages so you can create your own schedule and connect with as many teachers as you can during these Study Hall times.

 

AP Exams

Finally, I’m also happy to share with you the revised schedule for Advanced Placement (AP) exams. This is a condensed schedule, listing only the exams that are offered at Prospect.

 

AP Exam Schedule

 

As you may know, AP Exams will be administered online at specific days and times, but the start of Exams has been moved a week later to Monday, May 11. These will be 45-minute exams that must be taken at the schedule day and time. If you are planning to take any AP exams, make sure you put these dates and times in your calendar.

 

You can also download a copy of the AP exam schedule here. This file also contains links to get more details about the exams for each course, access review sessions, or learn more about test security.

 

We will continue to send updates, tips and tricks, and other supports to help you navigate online learning. In fact, Mr. Pinza will frequent Instagram Live to take questions about online learning.  Check out his instagram or facebook page for more information about when!

 

We know this is all very new, and we want to make sure you are set up for success. You are not alone, Panthers. Regardless of the distance, we are still owning our future together!

 

Go Panthers!

May 3rd update: The final few weeks!
 

Hello Panthers!  I hope that you've found yourself settling into a routine that helps you stay organized and focused through all the online activities in your classes. And I hope you've taken the opportunity to connect with each other via social media or other outlets. It takes an extra effort these days, but staying in touch with each other as a Prospect community is crucial to maintaining our emotional health along with our physical health.
