It was great seeing many of you at conferences.  Thank you to all of the community members who provided food for the staff.  There were so very many tasty dishes and refreshments to keep us going.

We had a great time at Cheley and I hope you have shared some of the silliness as well as some of the lessons about teams that we learned with your families.

Please remember as you check out Infinite Campus and your grades that Responsibility grades make up 10% of your grade.  Also remember that this is scored on a two point scale; if the homework is here in class completed at the start of class, it is two points; if it is partially completed, one point; and not complete or not here,  no points.  These points are earned at the time that I walk around and check homework, you can not earn them back.

Elective kiddos:  Please remember if you signed up to bring a treat to share, please bring it as well as your book to read. :)


I will be doing book orders, if you are interested, please see me.  Checks can be made out to Scholastic Book clubs or you can bring cash to me or you can order on-line by looking for my page and using the code HFH8N.  

Now that you have your community handbooks, please carefully read the section about dress code.  Some points to remember: no shoulders can be showing and shorts/skirts should reach at least to your finger tips when your arms hang naturally at you side.  Also undergarments should be under your garments. :)


There is information for my different classes, please be sure to look at your information.
