Those of you off campus on February 2, be sure and print your grades and put them either in the box in the office, CT 62 or in my box or in my hand in B201.

Let me know if your numbers are too high in a class or unbalanced (low in one class and high in another), as the counseling office is trying to work on getting things better balanced. Keep in mind though, that early senior release has made some classes low in numbers in the afternoons, In addition, all changes have a cascading effect, so classes will be looked at, but changes may or may not happen.

Book Study: Engaging Students with Poverty in Mind

If you are interested, there is still space to join this book study. The first session was very good, and teacher choice hours are available if you need them. The strategies covered in the book are for students in poverty, but work well for all students. Consider signing up in Eduphoria.
