URGENT! Facilities Update for QSAC

QSAC will be checking our school on Tuesday. I have issued "Tickets" to many teachers about their rooms. it is imperative that your room is clear of violations when you leave on Monday.

If you are unsure if something is permitted, contact me or Mr. Espenberg.

When in doubt, take it out!

Technology Reminder

Please DO NOT send students to Mike Irwin's office under any circumstances.

Mr. Irwin's position requires him to be out of his office or on the phone much of the time. Further, all repairs and support items must be tracked through a ticket and reported to the BOE.

Mr. Irwin has kindly sent this request out several times this year.

Continued disregard of this policy will be brought to my attention immediately.

PBIS News for this Week

Hello all,

Our PBIS event for the month of December is the Jingle Run!!! Pre-K and K will be running around the gym and 1st - 8th grade will be doing the run up Old Egg Harbor Road. The run will start in the bus loop and we will be calling out the grade levels around 8:45 to line up. Middle School will be in the front followed by Primary. We will have a shortened turn around for the younger kids. Once we are done, we will head into the gym and announce our Leaders of the Pack and they will stand up when called. They will be receiving their certificate and shirt in their homerooms. At the end of the assembly, Middle School Leaders of the Pack will meet in the Middle Office for a picture and Primary will meet in the Primary office for a Picture.

Mr. Curll will be around next Thursday to collect each grade levels Coyote Cards for December's drawing. We will do the drawing Thursday and then announce the winners Friday to save time. The Primary winners will be receiving an extra Gym Period one day next month!!!

Then we will start our holiday sing-a-long!! We will sing a few of the popular songs and then ...... Back by popular demand ....... The 12 Days of Christmas!!! Each grade level will be responsible for one of the days(see below). Mr. Smith will be making a sign for each grade level to have during the song.
