ANNOUNCEMENTS

MS Behavior Reminder Visits

Mrs. Pope and I would like to make a visit to each homeroom at some point this week to go over behavior expectations again with MS students. We will also be re-sending home the parent/student compact. As you know, the student behavior issues on MS have recently escalated and we want to be proactive. We will come by some classes during homeroom and others may be throughout the day. We apologize in advance if this disrupts instruction -- if there is a time that is absolutely off-limits, please let us know. We will also keep in mind the Performance Task schedule before popping in. Hopefully the talks won't be more than 15 minutes long.

Student Retention Lists

If you have not already, please go ahead and submit the names of students you are considering retaining for next year.


1) Each teacher may retain 2 students only (unless there's a reasonable argument for more)

2) Any student up for retention must have an SST
