It seemed weird to write "11/4-11/8" in the header this week. Hard to believe that the 1st Quarter is complete and we are into the month of November now. Time tends to move very fast over the next couple of months with Parent Teacher Conferences, the Thanksgiving break and then the Holiday break in December. 

Focus in, Stay on task, Monitor progress, and continue to have High expectations for ALL. 



Few Things:

*1st Quarter grades will be locked in at 9am on Tues, 11/5

*All grade changes after 9am on 11/5 need to be done directly through the Counseling Dept

*No school for students on Tues, 11/5

*Full day of PD for Staff on Tues, 11/5

*Your PD Schedule will come in a separate communication
