BOYS' BATHROOM ISSUES have continued this week. Please refer to Rod's email on Friday and reinforce appropriate bathroom etiquette with your students. Also, if any students report bathroom issues, please alert Rod or me right away. Finally, please be sure to use a sign-in/sign-out sheet when sending students to the hallway bathrooms. Thank you for help and support!
TEACHER WEBPAGE REQUIREMENTS During this process of updating the BASD webpage we have found that some teacher pages may need to be updated as well. As a reminder the district does require all teachers to have the following items on their district web page.
Contact Information (phone and e-mail)
Subject Specific Information
(This could include general information about the big ideas you teach throughout the year.)
In addition the following items are encouraged:
A picture of yourself
Some type of background information including such items as the school you went to, hobbies, or interests
A link to your monthly newsletter (if applicable)
For those interested additional pages can be created through School Wires. Additionally, if you want more flexibility you can link your page to Google-sites as well. For those of you who may need to make changes or additions please do so by the end of the semester (January 19, 2017).
UNITED WAY Please be sure to hand in your donation card to the office by the end of the month. Thank you for considering a donation to this worthy cause.
