This is a friendly reminder that Advisory Time is not Media Center Time. Students need to be in classrooms participating in structured Advisory lessons. Please use Advisory Time wisely. This is the PERFECT opportunity to have conversations with your students to help with the Social and Emotional pressures of Middle School!

Message from the Boss...


7 days til another break...but who's counting?? ME!

Again, let be sure to remember our patience in the last few days of the semester. Don't let frustration kick in. All you have to do is ask for help or assistance.

Love you,

Casey Hanna

ALL grades MUST be entered, uploaded and saved by the end of the day on Wednesday, January 2nd. No exceptions.

Report cards will be printed first thing Thursday, January 3rd.

Much Thanks!

Semester Reporting Deadlines

The grading schedule for marking period 2 should be as follows:

December 18th- End of the marking period

January 2nd- all grades/scores entered into the gradebooks and loaded by the end of the day

January 7th- report cards will be sent home for grades K-12

Money, Money, Money

Please turn in any and all money in the mornings. Please make a habit of asking students during 1st period to turn in any money.

Money turned in at the end of the day has to be counted, cash count completed, verified twice and taken to the bank... this is such a long process for end of the day.

** With recent audits, changes are being made on how we handle accounts, money and budgets. As a school and a district we HAVE to follow the rules and guidelines that the STATE AUDITORS set for us. No Exceptions! Thank you for your understanding and corporation.**

R.E.A.L. Panther Teacher/Staff Nomination Form

Here is the link to be able to nominate teachers and/or staff members for R.E.A.L. Panther!


Cooler weather seems to have arrived, and cold weather will soon be the norm. Keep a watch for students that are coming to school each day without an appropriate jacket/coat, socks, and/or shoes. Please make sure that you contact Mrs. True, Mrs. Terrell or myself to get proper weather attire.


Please remember to notify the cafeteria manager of any field trips that will be taking kiddos out of lunches so I can make the appropriate changes to our counts.

Also IF sack lunches will be needed the cafeteria manager needs to know approximately how many will need a lunch- including bus drivers and teachers at least 3 weeks before the field trip to order in sack lunch foods.

The morning of the field trip or the day before a field trip a final count and the names of those receiving the lunch will be needed. This is for accounting purposes and allergies.

Thanks so much!


Field Trips have been opened up. There is a limit to the number of busses that can leave for the day, so dates are on a first come first serve basis. Here are a couple of guidelines:

**Field Trips need to be requested as normal. Please make sure the correct date format is used. For example, 01/01/2019. We need accurate counts for students and teachers. Please do not estimate. We need to be notified at least a week in advance of any changes to the number of riders.

**We are only able to provide five drivers per day. Once we have reached our limit for a particular day, field trips will be closed.

**Trips should be scheduled to leave no earlier than 8:30AM. ALL trips should return to the school before 2:00PM. These times will allow for potential traffic delays.

**Incidental fees (i.e. Entrance or admittance fees) for drivers will be be covered by the school or a receipt(s) from the driver to be reimbursed will be sent to the building principal for processing.

**If more buses are requested than are needed and a driver has already been scheduled for the trip, the school will be responsible for the pay of the extra driver.

**Teachers/Sponsors are responsible for the behavior of the students while on the trip. Students and staff need to remain seated while the bus is moving.

**Teachers/Sponsors need to check the bus at the end of the trip to make sure their students have not left personal items, such as backpacks, instruments, cell phones, or trash on the bus.
