      REMINDERS FROM LAST WEEK:


      • PBIS: Remember, when a student is bounced a phone call should be made to the receiving teacher so they are aware that they will be getting a student. Please go over the bounce form with your homeroom (especially 6th grade) so they know what to do.

      • STUDENT MOVES - Please see an administrator if you would like to move a student on your team or from your class. This must be approved first.
      • NON-NEGOTIABLES - (teach on your feet unless you are conducting small group instruction, cell phones away while students are in your care, while on duty and/or during professional meetings, Praise in public - reprimand in private, SHMS is a no yell zone, students should be supervised at ALL times, the Friday Review and all emails will be read in a timely manner)
