2016-17 Potential Bell Schedule

In preparation for a discussion at Tuesday's Staff Meeting, please take a look at what our bell schedule may look like for next year:

  1. Announcements will need to be in 2nd hour. Any sports or teacher announcements will have to be remitted by no later than 7:25 am to make it into that day's announcements
  2. I have made alterations to the 6th grade master schedule to accommodate this change. There will be no 2/4 ELA block.

Another point I would like you to ponder is switching 6th and 8th grade lunches. The question I have about our current practice is "why do we have our youngest, most immature group splitting up core classes?"

7th: May 19 (18 is Performance Task in classrooms; regular schedule); Student Schedule
