Another big thank you to all staff who have worked track, soccer, softball and baseball games and to our coaches!! Our events are well run and we thank all those involved to support athletics and our Orioles!!


Just a reminder Documentation Log's are due today, May 1st.

End of the year SLO is due May 15th.

If you need any help or have questions please let myself or Melanie know.


In looking at our student handbook here are a couple of items I would ask staf to please give input on.

1. Any changes in cell phones or electronics

2. First hour and other tardies-are staff assigning detentions, are things working or are there other suggestions?

3. Backpacks or the string bags-currently the middle school allows "string' bags. What are our thoughts?

4. Any others??

Thoughts for next year

Just as a reminder for our May faculty meeting would like to discuss the following:

1. Thoughts on Oriole Time and suggested changes

2. Schedule-anything to look at or talk about next year-will take next year about still adding a zero hour in future due to conflicts with advanced classes. Also conversation about 8:00 start time as a discussion for next year.

What else do you guys think? Is our schedule working? thanks for ideas/thoughts

3. How can we improve Oriole Way with us in order to impact students?

4. Others
