October Festivals

Hello Everyone, Happy Fall! Time to cool off from the summer days. Fall is a great time of year, right after the long hot summer and before long winter days. Oh, I forgot, we are in San Antonio so we usually skip winter in South Texas. What we don't do is skip the opportunity to help our students be successful in their goals! There is much to do over the next few months to get your education in the right gear. ABE/ASE students will be taking their GED test this month. If you feel you need more time, talk to your teacher about taking an Official Practice Test (OPT) first. If you began the semester in August, it is almost time for you to take a Post-Test. The Distance Learning teachers will notify you when you have completed hours to test.

Please keep the following dates on your calendar:
October 2 - DL New Student Orientation
October 4 - DL New Student Orientation
October 8 - DL Closed, Columbus Day
October 16- GED Writing Workshop (11AM - 12PM or 6PM - 7PM)

A reminder to all students:
 In order to remain in Distance Learning, a mimimum of 6 hours of online work is required per week. If you are unable to keep with this schedule or do face-to-face visits with your teacher, please contact the office. We will work hard to assist our students in meeting their educational and career goals. Take advantage of the free workshops and online learning opportunities available to you for free. I hope everyone has a fun fall season!
