Mock ACT on December 13th

On Tuesday, December 13th, all juniors will take a mock ACT using the math/science wing of the school. Watch for an email from Mischa Brainard for a schedule of teachers who will be testing, are displaced, and/or need to cover a testing teacher's class. There will be a short training after school on Monday, December 12th for all ACT proctors in the library.

Youth Mental Health First Aid

It is a requirement in our district that ALL staff must be trained in Youth Mental Health First Aid. The training will be provided on the iLearn days this year, located at Northern Middle and Southern Middle in their libraries. The training runs from 8:00 - 3:30 and will hold up to 36 people. If you haven't attended this training, please email Lori Price with the specific location (NMS or SMS) and the specific iLearn day (Day 1, Day 2, or Day 3) and carbon Ms. Ellis when you send it.

November/December

As mentioned at the beginning of the school year, our monthly Faculty and PLC meetings will not be held during the months of November and December. We will have Department meetings during these months, on the 2nd Wednesday. The dates for those meetings are 11/16 and 12/14 (not the 3rd Wednesday, schedule change due to Christmas break).

Each teacher will bring graded On Demand student writing samples to their December department meeting to discuss, so remember to practice with a prompt in at least 1 class of your choice sometime between now and the December meeting.
