CSHS Weekly Bulletin

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week

This week is Teacher Appreciation Week! And, I hope each of you knows how important you are to your students and the admin team. We have a beautiful school building, but that is not what makes our school great--YOU DO! Your passion for kids, your content area expertise, your fearless tenacity, and your competitive spirit help to define COUGAR TEACHERS. We will have a few surprises for you to celebrate all that YOU do as we go through the week, but please know that JEANS all week long are the first act of appreciation. (Remember that Monday is AVID College Shirt Day for Teachers, so please wear your college shirt with your jeans.)

I also wanted to share this article, "Six Things You Should Know About How Your Brain Learns." Items 3 & 4 in the list are about how sleep deprivation negatively impacts learning. The visual provided in the article of how lack of sleep impacts the body could be a very interesting conversation starter with an advocate class.

May you have a stupendous first week of May!

Clean up grade books

If you have any Incompletes pending for students (especially Seniors), please get those updated ASAP. Email Mrs. Starrett when you have completed any grade updates so we can ensure they are reflected correctly in the computer system.

Field Trips

We are no longer accepting field trip requests due to the hectic schedule for the rest of the year.

Hall Duty Between Classes

Make sure you are in the halls during passing periods. Your presence during this time of year keep many shenanigans at bay.

Have you sent a parent email lately?

Please continue to send parent emails (biweekly, at a minimum).

If a student is failing your class, make personal contact with his/her parents. Make sure counselors have been alerted regarding failing seniors as well.
