Rincon Weekly Update

March 8-March 21

This is the final week of Quarter 3. Please make sure your students get all make-up work turned in by Thursday, March 12th.

NO SCHOOL: March 13-March 22

Once we return from Spring Break, we will be approaching our “testing season”. As you know, state and college testing are extremely important. For this purpose, we have to adjust our bell schedule to afford students with an optimal testing environment. Please talk to your students and encourage them to try their best on all of the upcoming testing, as their performance has bearing on their future, as well as Rincon’s performance ratings. We all want our school data to continue to support what we already know, which is …Rincon is one of the best high schools in Tucson!
