same as Pebblego.

The second way is easier because you don't have to put in a login and password.

GIVEAWAY--2 Bookcases. If you want them they are outside Justin Tillich's classroom.
PBS Tickets

When handing out PBS tickets, please write their full name and the reason on the back and explain to the student why they are getting a ticket. During the drawings the students are asked why they received a ticket and some have no clue, some say for finishing my homework, for being good, for walking quietly. These are things that are expected of our students. Tickets should be given to students who have gone above and beyond daily expectations. Also, we've notice some teachers haven't given any tickets because when we are drawing we try to draw one from each classroom and can't find certain teachers. So please be consistent.
Thank you,
PBS Team

Happy Counselors Week

to Peggy K. and Brenda W. Thank you for all that you do for the students, staff and parents.


Thanks again!!

Reminder – Vision and Hearing must be checked before or as soon as you start interventions. It is very important that you rule out whether a student has a problem with being able to see and/or hear instruction. I will be checking SPRINT folders starting the week of February 29 – March 4, 2016, to make sure this is done. In the past I have not given insert pages or SPRINT folders until this was done, I hope I don’t have to go back to this practice. I have visited with the Speech Department and Nurse Stacey they are aware that there will be students coming to get hearing and Vision checked. Please let me know if you have questions or need assistance with folders. Thank you. Barbara Delorme
