News and Reminders
10th Period Survey: Thanks for all of your feedback for the survey. I hope to edit it this weekend and get it on our internal computer survey tool this weekend for administration during social studies classes later this month.
Building Safety and Security: We plan on locking the doors until 6:55 AM to limit access to our swipe cards starting January 19th. Please check your card to make sure it works if you are an early bird and let me know if you have students come earlier than that time so we can make arrangements for them. Lisa Hartman can help with any problems related to your swipe card. I am also meeting with Lou Alaimo and John McCabe Tuesday next week to look at our parking lot issues and how to best address them along with any other building security issues.
Faculty Meeting: Please let me know if you have a student or group you would like to showcase in February. I would also like to start hearing from interested departments who would be willing to share program highlights, methods and other topics of interest. Thanks to Marlene for taking minutes at our last meeting. They are attached to this Update and will be stored in the TCMS Shared Drive (S) under Instructional Staff in the Faculty Meeting folder.
