"Although no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending" -Carl Bard

Instructional Resources

Please make sure you have updated your remind 101 for information about our school community for this school year.


As we approach the end of the first semester please review expectations and procedures with our students. To support what the deans will be communicating in our mid-year resource discussions.

Please review the PBIS Matrix if you need additional resources please go to our PBIS Google Classroom. Also, please continue to give out RAYS to our students and colleagues.

Please remind students that we have cafeteria and hallway expectations. Teachers please remind students to walk in an orderly and quietly fashion. Instruction is still continuing in House B and other areas of the school. Seventh grade teachers please walk our students down to the cafeteria. When students are dismissed from the cafeteria teachers should be standing outside their respective classrooms to greet students back from lunch. Students should not be immediately going to their lockers or restrooms, unless there is an emergency. Students should not be extremely tardy.

Please continue to review cafeteria expectations with our students. They need to continue to yield at the cafeteria entrance signs in a straight line. They need to continue to keep the cafeteria clean and neat.

Remember 7th graders eat Lunch B shift, C shift, and D shift!

If there are any questions, comments, or concerns please see me.

Please continue to be visible in the hallways during all bell changes. It does make a difference and it presents opportunities for us to connect with our students. Our students enjoy seeing us during instructional times and non-instructional times, so please utilize these opportunities: in the morning during arrivals, in between classes, during lunch processionals, and in the afternoon during dismissals.

Thank you for taking the time to read these announcements!!!

Please if you have any questions, comments, concerns or ideas please reach out to the House B team (Patti, Bonnie, Leslie or me)
