SHOUT OUT to our AMAZING Teacher of the Year, Mrs. Behrens! Thank you for all you do for our Tigers and always representing us well!!
Can a student take an exam early?
Reminders for ALL Staffulty from Mrs. Diaz
I would like to reiterate our expectations regarding classroom management as we have had a few things happen this week that could have and should have been avoided if we are all following procedures.
1. When students leave your room they should always have a pass. Students should not be allowed to leave class to wander the building.
2. If students have off periods – they are NOT allowed to stay on campus. They know the expectations given to them at the beginning of the year and they are to follow them. If there is a request to stay for some reason – that request must be approved in the senior office – by Mr. Bassett or Mrs. Herring.
3. If a student is not on your roll – they should not be in your class.
4. Advisory is included in truancy reporting. If you have a student who is not showing up for you advisory – please let your grade level principal know. No one should be keeping kids through advisory. Again, see #3.
Thank you for following all expected procedures. These are not suggestions J
Bring a new, unwrapped toy to the front office for Toys for Tots and wear jeans from now until December 21st!

A Few Reminders....
There should be NO passes during Advisory! Be mindful of the 10/10 rule in ALL classes. Be aware of students that ask for passes out of class often - this should not be allowed. We have TOO MANY students in the halls - especially during the afternoon classes. We appreciate you keeping them fully engaged in the classroom!
All teachers should be visible during the passing periods at their door! We appreciate your attention to this as it makes a significant difference in our hallways!
Everyone must let their supervising administrator know when you leave campus for ANY reason during the day. You may do so via text, email, or phone - but you must let them know!
This form is required to be completed by all teachers for each student that failed T1.
POSITIVE OFFICE REFERRALS!
