What's New?

  • The 10 Non-Negotiables poster is to be posted in all classrooms, near your planning area. These posters are important for you to review when lesson planning to ensure the 10 Essentials are used in each lesson. They are not intended as a room decoration. They are a reminder to include ALL 10 in every lesson. Therefore post them near your desk or planning area. Administration will come by all classes and check for posters on Monday after their PLC. If you do not have a 10 Non-Negotiables poster, please let Ms. Brayboy know. This is an easy "A"....
  • The SCS College and Career Readiness bulletin can be viewed here: https://www.smore.com/umayh. There's lots of good info and teaching strategies!
  • The Teacher Loan Forgiveness Program is intended to encourage individuals to enter and continue in the teaching profession. Under this program, if you teach full-time for five complete and consecutive academic years in certain elementary and secondary schools and educational service agencies that serve low-income families, and meet other qualifications, you may be eligible for forgiveness of up to a combined total of $17,500 on your Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loans or Federal Stafford Loans. If you have PLUS loans only, you are not eligible for this type of forgiveness.

  • Teachers, please try to ensure that your All-County Choir students use their time wisely and practice the music using the YouTube channel. Please encourage students to follow this link and listen to the music with headphones (the lyrics to the songs are shown on the video). We did not make CD's for every student. Some teachers are making CDs on request for students who do not have internet access outside of school. We would like to encourage as many students as possible to use their time wisely (computer lab resource time, 7:30-8:00, or end of the day) to practice and learn the words.
