Department heads will need to verify grades for each of your classes; print a progress report for one student per class and have your department head sign off that it is correct.

Out of Office
I was out last week for district tennis. When I returned, it sure seemed as if the kids decided to party (get themselves in trouble). Don't get me wrong, if you need to refer a student, please do. Please contact parents when you have students who don't want to work in your class, behave, or refuse to follow your directions. It is easier to follow through with consequences when I can tell parents that a teacher is continuing to have problems with his/her child and a teacher has indeed called.
As we all know, we still have a lot of time before the next round of testing. Students need to realize that there is much to do to get them ready. Some of the problems we had with students last week were in part because as one student put it, he was bored. He and others in the class claim they didn't have enough to do when they had a sub.Please make sure that you leave plenty for students to do. Many of you are doing a great job of helping the kids get ready for the upcoming tests, but I have walked the halls during PRIDE and have seen some wasted time. Remember, we are in this together; we still have two months of school left until summer break.
