Principal NoteLobos Family, 

I am excited to announce that STRIVE Prep – Federal’s Principal Fellow, Mrs. Bye, will be leading the school from January 3 until March 25. This is Mrs. Bye’s third year at Strive Prep – Federal. This planned interim principalship experience is a core component of the principal licensure process. Know that I will continue to support Mrs. Bye and the entire school community from beginning to end. 

Somos Lobos!

Verbals + Semester 1 Final AssessmentsNext week is the last week of semester 1!

On Tuesday, December 14th, all middle school students who take a Science class will be completing their verbal exam. Tuesday through Thursday, students in World Studies will be completing final presentations or exams. All week, students in Speech and Debate will be performing their final pieces of the semester and students in English Language Arts (ELA) courses will be revising and submitting their final essays. It will be a big week! Please support your students by encouraging them to sleep well and arrive on time each day.
