I just added photos from our 4th hour stations with all three classes.
Have a great Valentine's Day weekend. Remember, no school Monday!
As a reminder, EVERY STUDENT should have earbuds/headphones with them for EVERY CLASS!!! This should be a supply students keep with them throughout the day. Class time is wasted when students do not have them with them and have to go to their locker.
If your student does not have earbuds, the office may still have them for sale for $2 and I have seen them in the dollar bins at Target and at the Dollar Store.
I'm so excited to be back in the classroom after my nice, long maternity leave with Reagan. A little update on her...she's 3 1/2 months old and almost 15 pounds. She has a full head of crazy light brown hair and blue eyes. She's an awesome baby!!
Mrs. Smith did an AWESOME job in my absence!! I was able to relax and spend as much time as possible with Reagan knowing my class was in great hands. There were very few issues while I was away. She is very much appreciated!!
A few updates...
I truly missed being with the kids every day and am happy to be back. As always, please don't hesitate to email me should you ever have any questions/concerns.
Well, my original last date of work was next Friday, October 24th, 2014. I informed all students of this yesterday. I had an appointment yesterday and moved my last day of work to this Friday, October 17th. I will be having the induction talk with my doctor on Monday the 20th and it's looking like I'll be induced on Thursday the 23rd. Please email me if you have any questions or concerns--I have told all my students I will still be in contact with them and my sub throughout my leave. I'm confident they will be just fine. :)
Make sure you check out the photos from our fun Friday in Writing today. Every kid needs candy before lunch once in a while, right?? :) Don't worry, it was for a writing assignment.
Spirit wear was delivered during homeroom today. There was an overwhelming amount of orders this year (and orders still coming in) so your child may not have received all of their order. Behind the order form attached to the bag the clothes came in is a note saying what you are missing if your order is not complete. PTSA is hoping to have the rest of the orders here next week. Thank you for your patience. We are going to look good on spirit days!!
Tardies: Please review the tardy policy in the BJHS handbook (page 19). Remember: after the third tardy to any class, a student will receive a penalty hall from that teacher. All students have 5 minutes between classes to get their materials for the next class and use the restroom. I do not allow restroom breaks during class (unless the school has a written note from a doctor on file).
Have a great weekend!!
I have had 4 students ask me so far today when the end of 1st quarter is. The end of the quarter is Thursday, October 30th. Students do not have school on Friday, October 31st as it is a professional development day for staff. I will end AR before the 30th so I can get grades finalized by Thursday. I am going to talk to other teachers to see when they are ending their AR and will tell all students when this date is. Have a good week!!
What a surprise-a 3 day weekend! Students worked hard all week reviewing for their Chapter 1 SS test that was supposed to be today. Now, they get a few more days to study! I sent an email to all students stating that the test will be on Monday. Have a great 3 day weekend!!
As I'm checking planners for homework and signatures every day, I have noticed there is still some confusion regarding signing nightly. I stapled this note in all planners today. Please read & sign/initial on the line. If you have any other questions or want to clear up confusion regarding planners, please
