A message from our counselor, Pam Miller
I have started visiting some of the PIP classes to answer questions on tran-scripts and grad plans. If you would like for me to come to your PIP this week, please let me know. I can also combine a couple of classes if need-ed.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, May 19th and 20th, final exams will be ad-ministered to your seniors during regular class times. The grade posting window will be open for them on those 2 days and then it will close until the weekend. Please make sure all senior grades are posted and hard copies sent to me so I can finalize all senior grades for graduation. NO Incompletes!
On Thursday, May 21st we will have our Senior Celebration in the Audito-rium at 11:30am for the entire student body. We will adjust our class schedule for this assembly.
On Friday, May 22nd, all graduating seniors will meet in the Auditorium at 9:30am for MANDATORY graduation rehearsal and will be there until lunch. On Friday evening, the seniors will report to the cafeteria at 5:30pm to prepare for graduation beginning at 7:00pm. (Mr. Farr will be sending out a sign-up sheet for volunteers to help.)

Mr. Farr & Mr. Darr – Just a note to express my thanks for the helpful assistance our Shannon EAs have given to me today. Chris is out without a sub. Erika was running late. Of all days, I left home without my badges and keys. So I was trapped like a rat until I could get help. I wasn’t able to leave the room or get into the cafeteria or back into the building without a badge and key. Suzanne Rubio came to my rescue immediately and went to the cafeteria to get breakfast for my students. They are used to eating it at their desks when they first get into our classroom. A change in their routine is very difficult for my students to handle. She offered to stay with me, if needed, to help out in the room – but I was okay without that. JGE always needs someone to go onto the bus to get him and then to walk him to our classroom. Daniel handled that for me. Daniel also volunteered to take our boys to the restroom when needed today – and I very much appreciate that. Monica Dean always helps out each day by escorting at least one of my students to the classroom. I’m sure we have other EAs who help us out regularly in escorting our students to the room. I’m always in the room to receive our stu-dents and don’t go to the buses. Billy Leach also came to my rescue by letting me borrow a room-specific key today so I can keep our door locked & still get in and out. Hopefully this will be the only time that I leave home without my keys & badges. I certainly appre-ciate the help our EAs have given me today & always. Great teamwork!
That is shwat Special Ed is all about! Flexibility and Great Team work! Way to go everyone!
