Bally Staff Site 20-21
Room Close Out
CHANGE: The entire 7th grade will move downstairs. The entire 8th grade will move upstairs. This is a change from the original plan and addresses some of the concerns that you had about stairway transitions, bathroom usage, etc. Exact room assignments will be communicated after the building is fully cleaned.
Clubs for 20-21
1. If you want to sponsor a club, the SBDM can pay for your sponsor fee. You need to be hired for this position through the district. The pay is approximately $250. The commitment is that you need to be CPR certified (I'd really prefer this not happen during a normal school day because if so I have to pay $130 for a sub) and agree to meet with your club at least monthly.
2. If you KNOW you have a club you want to sponsor, please let me know. Once I have the full list, we'll determine which ones SBDM is committing to for the upcoming year.
Thank you to everyone who hosted clubs last year. The kids love staying after school for fun.
