CLASSES RESUME on January 3, 2019. We will be implementing a White Day Schedule. Students, please check Infinite Campus to confirm your schedule for the 3rd quarter.
Happy New Year
A New Year. New Opportunities. At the beginning of anything new, we have the opportunity to reflect on moments from the past year and make meaningful resolutions for the upcoming year. In order for any resolution to come to fruition, we need to make changes to our routines or habits. Research states that it takes 21 days to create new habits. Creating new habits, or breaking old ones is challenging but the outcomes can be transformative to the person making meaningful changes.
Often times, we make resolutions for our health and by the time that Spring Break rolls around, we are back to our old habits. This year, I challenge everyone to look at one way that you can make an impact on your life. For students, it could relate to organizational effectiveness--study habits, homework, test prep, etc. It could also connect to putting down technology each night at a certain time. For Parents, it could relate to wellness, or it could relate to scheduled dinners, or even putting your work away at a certain time to be with your children. For staff, it could relate to trying something new within instructional practices each unit, or finding extra patience in the classroom.
This year is up to us. Live it to the fullest. Every single day is an opportunity to seize the day to the fullest. Make today great!
Schedule as we return January 3, 2019
CLASSES RESUME on January 3, 2019. We will be implementing a White Day Schedule. Students, please check Infinite Campus to confirm your schedule for the 3rd quarter. If you do not have a Topper Time scheduled, you will be called down to see your counselor tomorrow at 10:44 AM.
We are implementing a new LEAN system to start off the year. Students will be able to use their student ID's with intention. This idea was generated by our students who were trained by RB Sigma in the basics of Lean. Here is the breakdown of how it works:
1. All Classrooms will have a laminated QR code.
-Students can access this form via their Chromebook by going to http://bit.ly/CHSPass
-or by going to the App Store: Apple Android
2. Students can use their phone to scan out...or use their Chromebook to go to a google form link.
3. The QR code/link sends students to a simple form to fill out.
4. Upon leaving class, students put on their ID lanyard. Students also will have a hall pass receipt in their email if questioned. All staff members will have access to the spreadsheet if necessary.
5. After returning to class, the students can use the QR Code/link to access the form again and indicate "return to class"
What does this do?
It standardizes hall passes so that every teacher follows the same protocol. All students use their ID as a pass. Also, all teachers will have access to the form in the case of any drills. All students will be identified.
