Meet the Teachers

Don't forget that Meet the Teachers is tonight at 6:30. Please gather in the auditorium by department no later than 6:15.

Please have each parent sign your contact sheet. It would be nice if you could have a copy of your syllabus or a card with your email address on it to give to parents when they stop by to see you.

Remember that this is not a time to discuss grades. If a parent wishes to do so, please have them schedule a parent-teacher conference through Nelda Garcia.

Pep Rally Thursday!

Due to the inservice on Friday, we will have our pep rally on Thursday and we will follow the pep rally bell schedule. There will be no PowerPeriod.

Friday's Inservice

We are very fortunate to have a presentation entitled "Worksheets Don't Grow Dendrites" presented by Dr. Marcia Tate from 8:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.

From 12:30 - 4:00 you will work on lesson planning in your content areas. Keep in mind that six weeks' tests are fast approaching.
