1. Before you come for your Goal Setting Conference, please fill in the "how I will get there" part. Please feel free to talk to those who selected the same area to brainstorm ideas on how to grow this year in your goal.

2. Please be sure you are completing your daily attendance CORRECTLY! During an audit, we must have accurate records. Attendance MUST be taken each day NO LATER than 8:15am. If a student comes in after you've taken roll and before 8:30am, then YOU are responsible for changing the absence to a tardy. Any student who comes to school after 8:30am, their absence will be changed in the office. Remember that absence notes must be sent to the office when a student returns to school. If you have any questions, please let me know.

3. We will wear jeans on Thursday of this week since Friday is Grandfriends Day. Please plan on wearing professional dress on Friday in honor of our special guests that day.

4. Check the bathrooms before and after you take a class break. Learners should go with a buddy to ensure responsible use while at the restrooms.
