Cleanliness is Next to Happiness!

Our custodians continue to do an exemplary job in keeping our school and grounds clean and safe for instruction. They still however need your help! Spending additional time in specific classrooms take away from their schedule and overall maintenance of the school. This is why we have charged our Custodial Team with rewarding classrooms with a 3 for exemplary maintenance by the students. Classrooms that have visible paper, pencils and trash on the floor as well as unkempt desks will receive a 1. LET YOUR ROOM SPEAK FOR ITSELF! Empower students to take ownership and responsibility for their learning environment! What score would you give the classroom below?
