Respect yourself. • Respect others. • Respect property.

Remember: It is not ok to disrupt class. It is not ok to be hurtful to others!

Keep your hands, feet & other objects to yourself!

No passes should be issued during class time! If students are found in the hallway, they will be escorted back to your room.

TARDY
When the 5 minute bell rings in the morning, you are to go to your 1st hour class. Many students are loitering in the halls long after the 8AM bell rings. The tardy policy will be enforced for all hours of the day and for all classes. THIS INCLUDES GYM CLASSES.

When you have received a 6th tardy, you will face an out-of-school suspension. That suspension will result in you being ineligible for the end-of-the-year field trips!

LHS SHOW CHOIR
Any 8th grade student going to Lanphier next year who is interested in being in the LHS show choir should see Mrs. Charneski for information. Please see her today!

LIBRARY BOOKS
All library books need to be turned in this week. No more check-outs are allowed!

FISHING CLINIC
The Department of Natural Resources & the Springfield Jaycees are sponsoring a kids fishing clinic on Saturday, June 7th at Conservation World on the Illinois State Fairgrounds. This is open to all children between the ages of 2 and 12 years old. Registration and fishing begins at 7AM and ends at noon.

REMINDERS
• Students — please be in your seat when the tardy bell rings!

Hallway behavior is very important. If you run, hit, curse, etc. in the halls, you will receive an after-school detention for 1 1/2 hours. You will also receive one if you roam the halls during class time.

BIST ~ Teachers are only going to redirect you once! After that, if you do not follow proper classroom procedures, you will be asked to move to the "Safe Seat" in the classroom. Please move to the Safe Seat without arguing. There will be consequences for being sent out of the classroom to a Buddy Room or Recovery.

If you are asked to go to the Safe Seat and you refuse, you will receive at least 2 after-school detentions!

Guest teachers are aware of our BIST procedures. Please respect our guest teachers.

Remember our school expectations:
Respect Yourself • Respect Others • Respect Property

READING COMPREHENSION IS OUR FOCUS!
