19-21 March - End of the quarter

Our seniors are gone on Senior Trip this week. Pray for their safety and that they will make good use of their time as a class before their final quarter.

Tuesday after school in the staff lounge we will have a discussion about student device use during school. The discussion is completely optional, so feel free to opt out if you have something else to do. 

Wednesday during lunch, we'll have our annual high school chili lunch! 

Before you head off to break, clean your food out of the ref in the staff lounge.

Also, make sure your grades are up to date this week so parents have a gauge of how their children are doing. If you think it is more appropriate, you can overwrite a student's letter grade with an I (incomplete) in Grade Book > Grade Postings if he or she is missing significant work.

Our first day back after break, 3 April, we will have a celebration for Tine and Jan's 60th anniversary at Faith. Classes will be shortened so we can finish the school day at 1:00 and have a shindig in the newly-rededicated gym in their honor.

The first two weeks of quarter 4 will be 4-day weeks. We will run a normal bell schedule those two weeks. The first weekend - 7-9 April - is Family Home Weekend, so don't plan on assigning work over that weekend.

Beginning 16 April, we will return to double double block weeks. Several of you told me it was difficult to finish weeks without the single blocks on Friday for unit wrap up activities and assessment. So since this is our year of experimenting with schedules, we are going to switch the single block day to Friday. This means that there will be even double blocks on Mondays and students will need to remember that they will start the week with period 2. 

Thanks for all your work on behalf of students this quarter. I hope your break is restful and you are able to return energized to finish the school year.
