For Monday, December 17, 2012
"N" Schedule Day
· I’m sure you’ve all heard about the tragedy in Newtown, CT. Let me reiterate that we have procedures in place (like making your wear your IDs in a visible way) and people whose job it is to be aware of who is in our building - your safety is always of our utmost concern.
o We know that everyone deals with things differently; please let one of your teachers or the office know if you wish to talk to someone.
o We will continue to hold school as normal this week, but let someone know if you have questions or a need to talk.
o Some people deal with grief by wanting to do something. Some of your peers have asked what we can do – please send ideas either to show support for the community of Newtown, or perhaps for the same age children here closer to home, to Mrs. Ashe and we’ll set something up as a school to show our concern and good wishes.
· Bring your early release permission slips TODAY (Monday).
· No Learning Lab or Chess Club this week.
· Even though the week will get unusual due to testing schedules as we progress – don’t forget, we are still in school and have work to do. Hunker down, focus, and push through this last week to finish your 1st semester as strong as possible! Good luck on your exams J

Quote of the day: from the XIV Dalai Lama
Tragedy should be utilized as a source of strength. No matter what sort of difficulties, how painful experience is, if we lose our hope, that’s our real disaster.
