If you have an important message that MUST get to me before the end of the day, please make sure you speak directly to one of the people in the office. This will ensure that your message will get to me, as I do not always get a chance to check my voicemail messages in the afternoon. Thank you!
Book Reports are not graded, but the students are encouraged
to complete them to get a certificate at the end of the year.
The recommended completion guideline is simply to help the students "stay on track"
so they don't get overwhelmed trying to finish them at the end of the year.

Respect school and personal property.
Follow directions the first time they are given.
