CONNECTIONS SECTION

IMPORTANT CONNECTIONS INFORMATION:

  • Mrs. Brundage has a Connections class in the MC each Wednesday so it is not open w/out a pass from a media specialist.
  • Students should not be sent out of your room during Connections unless they have secured a pass from another teacher or the media center PRIOR to your Connections class. There will be a limited number of passes available each week for the media center. They may secure them before Wednesday's Connections.
  • Please email Mrs. Duncan if you think you have an at-risk student needing some follow-up. We need to track how we are serving the at-risk students. Mrs. Duncan has offered to compile the information instead of using another form. Thanks, Mrs. Duncan!!!
  • We will hold in Connections on October 11. We will test on the 2nd floor and the main blue hallway. If you do not have a 10th grade Connections and you are in one of these locations, you will be displaced. If you plan on showing a movie, make sure you have completed the movie request form and made sure group viewing is a legal option with the film. Movlic is a great resource. (library.movlic.com)

Connections Notes for ALL Levels:

Gallup Poll Letters- Send Home with ALL students- They will be placed in your boxes on Tuesday afternoon. The form is returned to you ONLY if the parents DO NOT want the student to participate. You will keep the signed form so you will know who NOT to let complete the survey.
