What are you currently reading in SSR? How many pages are you reading a week?  Help your SSR class win a bagel and donut party to celebrate your success! Here’s how the competition works:

For the two week period of March 12-23rd, teachers will track how many pages are read by their SSR+ classes (in class only!) and complete a google doc form that will be sent on the 23rd.  Class size will be taken into consideration, and the class with the highest average will win!  

In addition, a second contest will take place in the library each week during the same time period: 

Match the book to the reader! Visit the library beginning next week and pick up a matching form that asks you to match the teacher to the book he/she is currently reading.  Submit your completed form to the box on the library counter.  There will be several prizes such as gift cards/food awards, and a winner will be drawn for each week. Best of luck, and enjoy your reading!

With the institution of School Wide Positive Behavior Intervention (PBIS) Support, any infraction that occurs requiring an assigned out of school suspension is considered a major offense.  Any student that causes a major infraction resulting in an out of school suspension will not be allowed to participate or attend any school function.  It is our philosophy that school events are designed for students that have not broken the rules and are in good standing academically and behaviorally.  These events include all dances including prom, any celebration of achievement, and the senior barbeque.   If a student is out of school suspended they are not allowed on school grounds or at any before or after school sponsored event while on suspension this does include away sporting events.
