Harvest and ISS Student Work


I want to thank you for making it a priority to give the students in ISS and Harvest current and relevant work. Please be on the look out for notification emails from Monica Thompson, Christy Barrett, and/or Ebony Alexander.


Many departments raised the concern about the representation of teachers and supervision of students during the assemblies.

As a reminder:

  • All teachers including floating teachers are required to be in the assembly
  • Teachers must sit with their houses. More specifically, teachers must sit with their advisory classes. Floating teachers please sit with the students who have split advisories at the top of the bleachers.
  • Starting next week, we will have the bleachers labeled with teachers names and Houses. (We will have Salubritas in the middle to make more room for faculty to sit with their houses).
  • While in the assembly, you are still in charge of all the members of your class. If there are any behavioral issues, please have your student move to come sit by you. Proximity is extremely effective.
  • Deduct or Reward points to your class members for behaviors during the assembly.
  • If behaviors are not what they should be, contact parents to reiterate school expectations.
  • Make sure students are not using their electronic devices.
  • Reinforce school dresscode expectations.

Dresscode Checks

We are developing a reward that will occur in Fridays if students follow the dresscode expectations.

The department chairs and team leads developed the following plan to make sure we can accurately track and reinforce dresscode expectations:

  • The MM teacher checks dresscode daily during morning announcements by walking through the classroom and observing student uniform.
  • If a student is wearing an item that is out of dresscode that can be removed, take up the item and give the student a pass to return to pick it up at the end of the day.
  • If the student is out of dresscode and the item cannot be removed, complete the pink dresscode detention slip, and turn it into Ms. Sentena by lunchtime.
  • Ms. Sentena will enter the student information and contact the student's parents to let them know about the infraction and required one hour after school detention the following day.
  • The total number of infractions will be totaled and an announcement will be made if the students have earned the reward that will take place the following week.
