Last week of School
It’s the last week of school before Christmas break. I hope we can end the year off well and have a great, relaxing break before the new year.
On Thursday, December 15, we would like to have a Christmas party and gift exchange. Please bring a gift that costs no more than $5. Students have volunteered to help out with the following snacks.

There has been some confusion about water bottles, so I would like to explain the situation. Water bottles are not allowed on tables while using chromebooks due to potential damage from spills. After a particularly bad water bottle spill that ruined student classwork, I asked that students keep their water bottles off the tables either in their locker or on a nearby shelf or other surface. If they need a drink from a bottle out of reach, they can get one during independent work or during breaks.
If that is too long to go without a sip of water, I have let everyone know that I will find a spot for them to sit where they can keep their water bottle within arm’s reach. Due to continued complaints, we have come up with a compromise where students can make or have someone help them make a cup holder attached to the table leg of their chair. It would also be possible to clip a water bottle to a leg bar support under the table if the bottle has that function.
I am open to further compromises, but please be aware that water bottles on tables have created problems.
