Bearcat Brief

March 18, 2019

Notes from Niki

  • It's beginning to look and feel like spring. Next week, spring sports will have their first games/meets/matches and then things will really start to fly.
  • I sent an email out just a few minutes ago canceling tomorrow's faculty meeting. We will meet next week and work on new RTI groups.
  • We have 8th grade Principals of the Day this Thursday and a 7th grade next Thursday so we will likely have "recess" for those respective grades during Bearcat Time. Please make arrangements to combine homework rooms for supervision like you did last week. Thank you for taking care of that!
  • The Bracket for HMS March Madness is attached below. We will start the challenges this Wednesday before school. If you are not going to be here you can arrange with me and your match to do it ahead of time, but we need to get them in by the end of the day on Thursday so that we can proceed with the next round. Games 1-8 will be considered Round 1.

Report Card

A friend showed her grandmother's grade card from the turn of the century. I thought you might get a kick out of this.
