QUOTE OF THE WEEK!

“I realized that I didn't treat people the way they deserved to be treated. In class it just came to me, ‘Wow, everything would be a lot easier if I was just a little bit nicer to everybody”

WEIGHING IN!

The Results Are In!

Congratulations to Leslie Arsenault, Julie Bosworth, Meagan Eads, Bill George, Tracy Hickmon, Ellen Loving, and Mandy Newton! They split the jackpot and will each receive $45.71.

TECH TIPS

eCLASS Lockers

Remember to tell you students to use their Lockers as a way to take work home to work on without the need of a flash drive. This is an awesome tool, but it has a storage limit and students need to make sure that they keep these cleaned out on a regular basis. They will need to clean it completely out by the end of the year, or lose their files!

ENCOURAGING POSITIVE CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT
