HIGH SCHOOL AND MIDDLE SCHOOL
GREAT JOB, TITANS, ON OUR ELEPHANT COIN DRIVE!! High school students have so far contributed $100, and middle school students have given $140. This means we are only $60 away from our school goal of $300, so that we can continue our support of the six orphaned elephants we sponsored this year. UNlock and Key Club are extending the drive during lunch in the cafeteria through the end of this week. Last week’s drawing winners were Alex Wiggins in high school for a $10 Dutch Bros. gift card and Haziel Torres in middle school for a $10 Jamba Juice gift card. Please see Mrs. Goodwin for your gifts cards We will select two new winners this Friday from everyone who donates at least $2.
A reminder about 1st hour tardies, from The Family Handbook (You CAN be on time! Two more weeks!): “The school disapproves of the accumulation of unexcused late arrivals to school, irrespective of the circumstances. Persistent first-period tardiness is highly disruptive of instruction and undermines student morale. On the third occasion (fourth for Middle School) that a student has an unexcused first-period tardy in a quarter, a detention will be issued to the student by the first–period teacher. For each subsequent unexcused first period tardy in the quarter, another detention will be issued. When a student has received four detentions for tardiness in a quarter, then he or she may receive an in-school suspension for a duration determined by the administration.”
