  • 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.
  • 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)
