End of the Year Checkout: READ CAREFULLY
Resources that belong to you personally will need to be labeled and boxed this year in order to checkout. If you have extra office items or student supplies such as staplers, post-it notes, paper clips, etc. that you have not used, please do not leave them in the classroom. Return them to the office for next year. With extra resources, extra text books, extra supplies out of the classroom and your personal items gathered into boxes, check out will be completed when all closets, cabinets drawers and desks are clear of all items.
Word from the Wise: If you begin taking down bulletin boards too soon, students will begin to act even more that summer is already here! Save your bulletin boards for the very end with the exception of student work.
A more extensive checklist for checkout will be provided to you at a later date. The tasks above are more time consuming and you may want to complete them while students are here to help you.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
