Update: week of December 15th

Only Five More Days!

The countdown to break continues! I wish all of you a calm and peaceful week. Don't forget to stop in and grab a cookie (or two) from the faculty room.

A few housekeeping items:

  • Since the faculty meeting was canceled, I will make myself available after-school on Monday and Tuesday to answer any questions you have about the new budget process. I will be in my office from 2:45-3:30 both days, so please stop in with questions!
  • Please remember to provide me with any changes to course descriptions by the end of the week. The booklet will be finalized over break.
  • Draft #1 of the Regents Examination Schedule will be out by the end of the week. Please review it and let me know of any conflicts or concerns.

Good luck this week!
