Respect yourself. • Respect others. • Respect property.

NO SCHOOL MONDAY!

ISATs begin Tuesday, March 4th!
Attendance is very important! There will be a reward dance during 7th hour on Thursday, March 20th, for all students who had perfect attendance during ISAT week.

BLACK HISTORY MONTH
Black History Month began on February 1.

The answer to Thursday's question:
Zydeco is a style of dance music. It came from French-speaking African-Americans in Louisiana. Instruments used for this style of music include a washboard, bass, fiddle, accordion, and guitar.

Today, students who have participated in the questions of the day and/or have participated as a heritage bowl contestant will receive invitations given to you by your first hour teacher will be your hall pass and ticket into the gym for the heritage bowl final round at 9AM.

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!

BOWLING FOR TECHNOLOGY

REMINDERS
This is a reminder to ALL students to keep their hands to themselves while at school.

• 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!
