Veterans Day- Tuesday, Nov 11th. quote by Dan Lipinski;
Greetings Parents and
Families of Steubenville High
School,
It is hard to imagine that
November is already here and
the 1st quarter is about to
close. The school year is
passing by quickly.
We are starting a tutoring
program in the school. It's
called the Big Red S.T.A.R.
(Student Tutoring and
Resource) Program. We are
hopeful that the STAR
program will benefit those
students in need of
intervention.
Also coming,
November 4th is our Open
House from 5pm - 8pm. I
want to remind families that
these conferences are a
powerful tool in better
understanding the needs and
strengths of your
daughter/son. The more
parents choose to participate
in these discussions, the more
knowledge you will gain.
Please feel free to bring a list
On this Veterans Day, let us remember the service of our veterans, and let
us renew our national promise to fulfill our sacred obligations to our
veterans and their families who have sacrificed so much so that we can
live free.

of questions that you may
have regarding your
daughter/son or the academic
program that is being offered
in your child's classroom.
Write down any questions
that you have. Your child's
teacher wants you to become
more informed about their
education and what you can
do at home to help continue
their academic success.
In order to continue our great
start here at school, it is
important for our students to
be constantly motivated and
to work hard throughout the
school year. Please check with
your child daily on homework
assignments and be sure to
follow up on Progress Book to
verify assignment completion.
A student prepared for class
each day has an excellent
chance for high achievement
in the classroom. I would also
like to encourage parents,
guardians and family
members to attend as many
student-related functions as
possible in order to show your
support towards your
daughter or son.
If you would like to contact
me, my e-mail address
is [email protected]
can also reach me by phone at
