“Oh! Yeah I have to go to work on Mondays and yes every one hates Mondays. But I look at it a little differently. I don’t have to work, I GET to work. I am blessed to have a job while many don’t have one.” Dinky Manuel

I'll just state AGAIN:

Please DO NOT park in the parking lot behind the Greek Store/ Mrs. Baird's. Mrs. Villegas was called this week in reference to your cars taking up spots. Those spots are needed for customers and attendees of "meetings". You are taking up places and forcing others to have to park elsewhere and awkwardly... (As this request and expectation has been stated several times, I have covered my bases. I did tell Mrs. Villegas to apologize for you and to give the blessing to commence towing if they deem it necessary...)

Huge thanks to all who’ve helped recruit and interview potential AVID students:

Shannon, Mike, Travis Kidd, Robin, David, Angelique, Liz Speaks, Lynn, Mary, Josh, Matt, Travis Irish. Special thanks to Thalia for interviewing, cajoling, promoting, and tedious data-mining. I am blessed to have talented, generous colleagues. ~Margaret~

Shout out to Wesley Eidson!! He's been awesome to work with in my inclusion class. The other day, I had to step outside briefly to talk to another teacher and student. When I was done I went back in expecting to pick up where I'd left off, but he had already finished what I was doing with them! He's truly a self-starter and jumps in wherever he sees a need. The kids already really like him, too. I almost don't know what to do with a true partner teacher! Yay! ~Colleen Zitzman~

Travis Kidd, you da bomb! Thank you for picking up my bench!!! ~Sugey~
