**We will be hosting approximately 35 - 40 out of town guests who are interested in seeing the Digital 1:1 Initiative in action. The majority of our guests are from school districts in Tennessee, Mississippi and Georgia. The main objective for their visit is to learn about the Digital 1:1 curriculum and to see it demonstrated in classrooms at all grade levels and subjects.
Please plan a lesson that incorporates effective, engaging use of technology. The guests will be divided into groups who will tour the building and visit classrooms.
**Faculty meeting @ 3:20
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 18th
**Make-up faculty meeting @ 7:15 in the AV room
FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 19th

the faculty meeting next week (2/24).

You will bring all student conference forms to the faculty meeting next week (2/24).
Note: You should also have a follow-up conference to discuss their progress at the
middle of the 3rd nine weeks.
I want to again thank you all for your diligence in being visible in the hallways, as well as, following the hall pass procedures. I know it's difficult and may seem like such a small task, but it has a tremendous effect on the culture of our school. Thank you!
