Our SCHS trimester schedule involves a textbook exchange at the changing of trimesters (instead of keeping the same textbooks all year long).
From 12:20-2:30, on Nov 21-22, students should bring in the textbooks that they will not need for the upcoming trimester and exchange them for their 2nd Trimester books.

To satisfy the “e” requirement of the “a-g” requirements a student needs to complete a minimum of two years of study of the same world language. Spanish taken in middle school can count toward completing this requirement.
