  • Friday will be an "A" day. We will have a regular dress down day for students.

Please read Laura's email thoroughly and in particularly look at the Bring Back piece to include stacking your student work into High Medium and Low with ONE class. Vickie will meet with us after Cluster to review or go over intake conference process for Saturday.
  • We asked a few of you to provide your SLO for program review. If it is in notebook form, I will need it tomorrow to make copies and will get back to you prior to Friday's Cluster.
  • Progress reports: grades are to be completed by noon on Thursday, Feb. 18. You do NOT have to print a verification. Progress reports will be distributed on 2-19 during Blazer Block.

This event is for our future 9th grade students and parents. We will do this in one session starting at 8:30 a.m. so you will have the rest of your Saturday!
