The three strikes rule will be put into effect starting today. Announcements will be made during lunch. PLEASE adhere to the three strikes rule. We must be consistent in our use of it. Everything should be logged into Skedula so Mark, Eric and John can keep accurate records and students get the message that we are fair and uniform in our use of discipline.
A Broadway committee will be formed to handle logistics. We will either be travelling by yellow bus or subway.
Next year, we are working to get the whole school to have the Snapple Theater at W.50th and Broadway for THE FANTASTIKS. We would get the whole theater for three performances with a Q&A with actors afterwards.
Reducing Test Anxiety
Attendance folders are being turned in late or in some cases not at all.
Please be reminded that the yellow folder should be returned at the beginning of 2nd period and the red folders by 2:30 pm.
