Thank you for writing shout outs! Please continue to do so. We took down all of the February shout outs and selected two winners at random for dinner on us! Congratulations to Rachel Roehm and Becky Entry! We will have something for you Monday!


Let's get that board filled back up during March!

QR Code Labels

I have been speaking to several parents lately that say they are not informed and don't know about the weekly memo. I created small labels with a QR code to our school Facebook page. I will do a raffle (random number generator) this upcoming weekend and reward the students that are selected. There are labels in your mailboxes. Please put these in students' agendas Monday and encourage them to have their parents like our Facebook page. Thank you!

Lost!

I attached a picture of an air pod case. I have it in my office; if your students mention it, please send them to me. My understanding is these are pricey.

Chromebooks

Please have students shut their chromebooks down (properly--actually selecting shut down) every Friday. This will ensure the devices receive appropriate updates. Thank you!

**Individual grade levels are responsible for their incentives for students.

Marking Tardies

If a parent drop off student arrives to your class after 8:10 (within a few minutes) and does not have a pass, they are present. We close the gate at 8:10 am. As long as they are on campus by this time, they are present. Students that arrive after must enter through the office and receive a pass. This will help you distinguish which to mark present and which to mark tardy.
