Brittany's Corner

Hope everyone had a peaceful, relaxing weekend! I got to meet Lance Armstrong and "ride" with him! Regardless of his infamous background, it was a super cool experience.

I wanted to say THANK YOU from the very, very bottom of my heart for everyone's help and cooperation this past week. I am glad it's all behind us and I couldn't do it without each and every one of you! Y'all make me SO proud to be a Bobcat!

Schedule for Next Year
Ok, so the time is near... The time we put this year behind us and start thinking ahead for next year. At your next grade level meeting, I would like for y'all, as a team, to complete the form below. This form let's you express your preferences for next year's schedule:
*Just one form per grade level needs to be submitted.

In addition to the form, I would like a few staff members to help be a part of creating the schedule for next year. If you would be interested in serving on the "scheduling committee," please let me know. We will meet before the school year ends.

Textbook Inventory
Just wanting to give you a heads up for textbook inventory. I will need to come around and count each of your textbooks for inventory purposes. This will most likely not be until the last week two weeks of school.
  • If you know a student has lost a textbook, please let me know this week.
  • When I do come around to check textbooks(not consumables), I would like them to be on your shelves in groups of 5 (5 vertical, 5 horizontal, rinse, lather, repeat). If you do not have shelves, please place them in groups of 5 in a place that is easy for me find/access.
  • Again, just giving you a heads up. You do not have to get your books ready just yet as I know some of you are still using your textbooks daily.
