Tardies- RESET 2nd SEMESTER- Revert to old policy

The new first period tardy policy has not helped the tardy issue. As a result, we will go back to our old tardy policy where all students have to report to attendance to get a tardy pass for ALL tardies in all classes.

PAPER PASSES ARE REQUIRED

Teachers have been given paper passes. These must be used for ANY students in the hall. Admin will be escorting kids without passes back to teachers not following procedures.

Passes must have:

Student's name

Time

Date

Where the student is going

Teacher's LEGIBLE signature

BUS CHANGE

The commons has become hectic at the end of the day. As a result, we will begin to announce the bus routes that have arrived at the end of 7th period. This will begin on Monday, November 20.

Security

Remind students to SAY NO TO THE DOORS. Everyone must enter through the front doors after school begins. Students caught letting people in the building should be referred to an administrator immediately. They will receive ISS the first time and be assigned OSS if any additional incidents happen.

INFORMATION FOR NOVEMBER 27- MONDAY WHEN WE GET BACK

Teachers this announcement is to help you with your planning. This is an upcoming event we would like to make you aware of:

On the Monday after Thanksgiving break, November 27th, we will be hosting Chad Crews. He is a magician/master storyteller. He will be performing his show "Authors of Mystery and Horror" four times for us that day in the auditorium. Each show will last for 45 minutes. We are going to try to provide the show to all of our students. The shows will be 1st period with the Freshman, 3rd period with the Seniors, 5th period with the Juniors, and 7th period with the Sophomores. Teachers will bring their classes to the auditorium to experience the show. Teachers with mixed classes will bring their entire class if the majority of the students in their class are that grade. If teachers want to learn more about the show they can visit this link: http://www.chadcrewsprograms.com/p/blog-page_17.html If anyone has questions, they can email or speak to the media specialists. It should be a great performance that hopefully inspires our students to read.

Connections on Wednesday, November 29

Connections Schedule- Wednesday, November 29

Our final decision for Connections after additional feedback is for Connections to happen as scheduled which will be every other week as it fits each month's events. Dates will be posted on calendars in advance.

Connections Decorate your Door Contest (Optional)

YOU MAY WANT TO START YOUR PLANNING IN CONNECTIONS!!! Decorating can begin when we return from our Thanksgiving break!!!


It's that time of year again and we will be entering the DOOR DECORATING season!! This year, our theme is "Celebrating the Holidays and Making Connections" and each Connections class (if you choose to participate) will design, create, and decorate the classroom door. You may extend beyond the actual door though the door must be included in the design. Please consider participating in the contest. The winning teacher and class will be rewarded.


Doors are judged based on three elements:

Celebrating the Holidays and Making Connections Theme

Creativity

Neatness


Doors must be decorated by Friday, December 8. They will be judged and the winner announced on Tuesday, December 12. Pictures will be taken and forms sent for voting.


Even if you don't want to be part of the contest, you could wrap your door. Just an idea :)
