TEACHER OF THE SIX WEEKS

Congratulations Ms. Rodgers! She has been selected as the teacher of the 4th Six Weeks!

Ms. Rodgers is one of the most positive and uplifting teachers at NRE. She is always looking for ways to support her students and praise their efforts in common as well as unusual ways. She goes the extra mile to make sure students are engaged and learning. She supports some of the most challenging learners on campus and does so with grace and caring. She is my hero who I want to pattern my teaching style after. She reminds me that calm and collected is that best way to get and maintain student attention.

Answer the Question, Please!

Question? On the map showing the security check, why aren't the office doors marked as locked or unlocked?


Answer? The only doors that are checked are ones that can be used in a lockdown scenario. The office staff besides nurse relocate to a room designated by the principal. That door remains locked at all times. That's why the security officer is not required to check the office doors.
