March-ing on!

The end of the quarter is in sight. I’m sure you’re all looking forward to our March break. This week in HSD…

- EARTHQUAKE DRILL: We will be having an earthquake drill with full evacuation on Monday, March 7 at 7:45 am. It will span the end of 1st period and the beginning of 2nd period. IMPORTANT REMINDER: Please make sure you bring the class attendance folders down to the field. These are located in the red Crisis Manual holder by the door of your classroom. These need to be returned to the same place after. For earthquake drills (and the real thing), each teacher is responsible for taking attendance of his/her own class. Please study details in this note sent by Peter Winslade.

IGCSE internal exams: IG internal exams begin this week. Please release your students 10 minutes before their  scheduled exam. (For the external IGCSE exams it will be a little earlier) Thank you for your help.

- QUARTER GRADES: Grades need to be in by 2:30 pm on Tuesday, March 15. Both ACHIEVEMENT and DEPORTMENT GRADES need to be completed as well as comments (for those with grades lower than B-).  Remember that comments are filled through the Grade Posting page and that they should be limited to 160 characters.

- INSTITUTIONAL GOALS: Time has been allotted during ASERT days for everyone to work on Institutional Goals for the year (primarily work on Curriculum Trak elements). Important dates related to Curriculum Trak work are listed here. If you have any concerns about what you need to do on Curriculum Trak either procedurally or content-wise, you can talk to either Brian Foutz or myself. By Tuesday, March 8, ‘unit structures’ for your classes should be complete. This should not take too long.

- SENIOR TRIP: Our Seniors and some staff (chaperones) will be leaving for Siquijor next Sunday, March 13. There will be no Seniors in your classes from March 14-16. Please keep them in your prayers as this is a time when their closure activities begin in earnest.

- ORDERS for SUPPLIES etc.: Just a reminder that all orders placed for classes (e.g. books, posters, special supplies etc.) need to be signed off by the HSD principal before orders are placed, especially if they need to be shipped from overseas.

Have a great week!
