14th Edition 12.11.15

Opening Thoughts

I have to begin with a huge THANK YOU to everyone for an amazing testing week. This week takes a total team effort - THANK YOU to everyone for helping students get to the correct testing room, preparing and delivering lunches, preparing testing rooms, proctoring the tests, covering classes, and so much more! THANK YOU!!!!!

It is great to see the holiday spirit popping up all over the building - if you have not walked the halls to see the great decorations - you are missing out! Please take some time and check out all the different decorations! I am not sure I have seen this much in previous years! I hope the Fire Marshall does not come next week, if he does - I am taking you all down with me!!

We have one more week before the holiday break! Please keep the students in your classes and limit the time and opportunities they leave class - students must have a hall pass when they leave. Be visible and monitor the halls. Continue to push the learning experiences and enjoy the journey!
