PowerHour-Suspended

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
Parents:  Below is the announcement given to the students on Tuesday morning:

Students and Staff, good morning.  As many of you may have already heard, we have a change in our daily schedule for the rest of the week we would like to take the opportunity to explain.  PowerHour was designed a time to improve academically, get more involved in school activities, and to build relationships to help improve your educational experience.  While a majority of students have utilized this privilege in a positive manner, there is a growing number of students who have not utilized it wisely or in a positive manner.  This number has reached a unsustainable level where we must suspend it. While it saddens us to take this step, all student must realize and consistently meet the expectations of this privilege.

The main issues currently with PowerHour are as follows:

PowerHour is not a time for students to seek out and either verbally or physically confront other students over disagreements. While several students have lost PowerHour for the semester or year, students continue to engage in these behaviors too frequently.  Students should learn how to use social media appropriately, how to speak and interact positively, and how to avoid confronting others in these negative ways.


PowerHour is not a time to move throughout the hall with no academic purpose.  Students should not move in and out of the cafeteria multiple times within a lunch period or walk through the halls just talking with friends.  Students should move only with an academic purpose.  You should think ahead and know where you are going and only move if you are headed to a specific classroom.  Students should remain in their current location during the last five minutes of each PowerHour.

PowerHour is not a time to leave your trash wherever you feel like it or to laugh & scream repeatedly at a volume that is unacceptable.  Students should learn to pick up after themselves and remind their friends to do so as well.  Students should be respectful of each and be aware of how their actions impact those around them.

PowerHour is not time to decide which rules you will and will not follow.  Students should report to detention in J100 if you are assigned a detention.  These detentions include those assigned for students who arrive unexcused after 7:45 am.  Students should take responsibility for themselves and attend required PowerHours.


Thus, these are the expectations of PowerHour that are not consistently being met.  

We will eat by floors the rest of the week, at a minimum.  Students in detention will be dismissed by a chime 2 minutes before each lunch and should get their lunch and then report directly to J100 for lunch detention.  C-9/Co-op/Internship students should see Mr. Bruns or Mrs. Busch to set up their detention time. C-9 students will be dismissed by a chime at 11:08.

We thank the majority of students who have been using PowerHour wisely.  We ask those students who have not to change their ways, and help earn back this privilege.  Students should demonstrate positive leadership and be a caring friend and help others make better decisions by modeling appropriate use of PowerHour when it returns.
