Basic Best Practices *Thanks to everyone for working together to follow the "norms" that were set for our school and signing planners when students leave class. *Thanks to everyone for continuing to develop best practices by displaying Essential Questions and Language Objectives for students.

Celebrations and Hot Tamales *Allison has a Tardy Log that students have to sign if they are tardy. This is a great strategy to monitor tardies and help students take responsibility for their behaviors. Others are probably doing this. I just happened to notice this practice in Allison's room. *Mandy, Chandra, Lee, Makenzie, Natasha, and Linda did a great job representing our school at the Board meeting last week. Way to go Vanessa and Jill for organizing a successful Book Fair for our school. Way to go Coach Gary on a great victory. Also, thank you for being the kind of teacher/coach who brings his "A" game to the classroom as well. Thanks to April, Mandy, Makenzie, and Janice for making sure our AVID students had a great OPTED trip on Friday.

A picture is worth a thousand words.
