7th Grade Weekly Memo

Reoccurring Information

  • Please refrain from sending students to the bathroom before 1st Core begins.
  • Effective 9.28.15  ALL student book bags are required to be in their lockers. Drawstring bags containing P.E. materials are the only bags permitted in classrooms.
  • Update class rosters for Fire or Lockdown Drills
  • In the event that you need to run off campus please be sure to notify Ms. Douglas and me before leaving.
  • PowerSchool needs to be updated weekly
  • If you need coverage for a classroom break please call me or a teammate to supervise your class. Leaving students unsupervised in a classroom is a dangerous professional practice that we cannot continue.
  • Ms. Douglas has made mention about the number of unsupervised students sitting or standing outside of our classrooms. Going forward if a student needs a place to work on an assignment, consult a team member and send the student to their class. In the case you need to speak with a student outside your class please do so in a timely manner and transition the student back into class.
  • Starting 3/7/16 – All students are to remain off the hall in the morning. (We are experiencing a high number of students wandering the hall aimlessly)  All 7th Grade Tutoring students must produce a pass to gain access to the hallway. Thank you for your support.
