We have a faculty meeting this week. I will review our SIP meeting. If you have any topics you would like discussed at the meeting, please send them to me tomorrow. (Tuesday). I appreciate your patience during our soft lock-down on Friday. We had a medical situation with a student and needed to keep the hallways clear for her privacy. I hope you had a nice long weekend.

Bullying, NO WAY!

Bullying, NO WAY!

Message to students- When you see someone being bullied, let them know that they are not alone. Reach out to peers who are being bullied rather than standing by and doing nothing. Take a pledge to stick up for kids who are being picked on. If you walk away and get help, you are part of the solution, if you stay and watch, you are part of the problem. the best thing you can do for a kid who is being bullied to be their friend, There will be a banner in the cafeteria for students to sign during lunch. I am hoping to have it up by lunch on Wednesday. Students worked on creating it on Friday but were not able to finish it. If you have a student or two who would like to help finish creating it, please send them to the office at the start of study hall on Tuesday. If we have too many, we will send some back.



If you find any good video clips, please send them to me.

Thank you
