  • Please help the custodians keep your rooms clean. Encourage students to eat breakfast before they come to your room. All breakfast trash should be put in the trash cans in the hallway, rather than in your classroom trash can. Should you have a spill in your classroom, please call immediately for a custodian.

  • Grade level Restrooms: Please reinforce the use of grade level restrooms. If there are any questions or concerns, please see Mr. Smith.

  • PBIS Reminder: Homeroom teachers please remember that students can earn 5 tickets for perfect attendance each week, and they can also earn 5 tickets for using the Word of Week in a sentence or if they can give the correct definition.

  • Teachers, please remember to take you AESOP information home with you just in case you need a Sub.

  • At dismissal time please stand at your door to ensure students make it safely and quickly down the halls to their cars and buses.
  • Broken objects (pencils, etc.) still pose a safety hazard on the soccer/football field. The Safety Committee ask that teachers have students leave items in their backpacks and for backpacks not to be carried out on the field during TLC or PBIS events.
  • Teachers in an effort to keep students safe and monitored please ensure students have a pass when they leave your class for any reason. The pass should include their name, the date, and the time in which you have written the pass.
  • Science Olympiad is fundraising with Fun Pasta Fundraiser. Our group link is on the school website. Please help supports us! :)

Lung Cancer Awareness

"November 17 is designated as a day to raise awareness about the dangers associated with tobacco smoke. In an effort to support healthy lungs and to discourage teen tobacco use, we are asking students and staff to wear a white ribbon (which is the ribbon color for Lung Cancer Awareness) or something of their choice that day."

Discipline Procedures

Minor Incidences: Make sure that you enter minor discipline referrals and document interventions. Bounce is not the only intervention!

The link to PBIS world is in the google Standard Protocol Procedures that was shared with staff by Mr. Smith and it is full of unique interventions.

Tips: If you send a student to the office for discipline; you must notify the office so that they know why the student is there. Students must have a note or pass to be in the hallway. Limit time outside of class; remember they learn best when they are with you!

Classroom spelling bees should be done by Friday, November 18th. Our school wide spelling bee will be held on Monday, November 21st at 2:00 pm in the Media Center.
