STAY STRONG AND USE YOUR MANNERS!!!

May5

It really bothers me to see what is happening at our school.  We are just finishing up EOCs but we are NOT finished with the school year.  I understand that it is a HUGE relief, but classes are still in session. We see students in classes sleeping, shutting down, and totally checking out.  And you are almost rude in your behavior….you must be on your best behavior and you must stay awake and pay attention to your teacher.  That is the least you can do.  LISTEN and it may even help you on your finals!!  Please be courteous and remember we are here for you and when you are rude, it makes us not want to be here with you.  Give respect to get respect.  PLEASE.

END OF COURSE TEST AND FINAL EXAMS

April28

Make sure you are getting rest and some studying done maybe?????  The next few weeks are exciting to say the least, but they are sooo important – Monday starts the EOC tests and after that, we will prepare for the final exams.  You have to be 100% and if teachers are letting you do projects and make up work, TAKE ADVANTAGE of this!!!!  FINISH STRONG and try your best.  You won’t regret it.   🙂

Academic Signing Day:

is an event designed to celebrate the academic achievement and success of the senior class.  Similar to the ritual of an athletic signing day, senior scholars will be recognized as they publicly “sign” a certificate of commitment to the college or university that they plan to attend in the fall of 2017. 

For the past two years, this event was held in the evening.  This year, in an effort to attract more participation, the event will be held in the theater, May 10th at 9:00 am.  Seniors who have submitted a participation form, along with their respective letter of acceptance, will be allowed to participate. 

On May 8th, you will receive a list of seniors who are participating. The event will last one hour and breakfast will be served immediately following the signing.  Therefore, you should expect seniors to return to class some time during 2nd block.  When the event is over, you will receive an email indicating that they should be back in class.

If you are off during 1st block, we encourage you to consider attending the event.  It is a beautiful ceremony and we are sure your students will be happy to see you.  Additionally, if you would like to volunteer to help out, we would greatly appreciate it.

If you have any questions regarding the event, please reach out to someone in the counseling department directly

EOC and FINALS

April21

As we near the end of the year and the semester, it is crucial that you try your very best, especially on the EOC,  if you have one in a particular subject.  It is such a big percentage of your grade and you HAVE to take it seriously.  It is not that difficult IF you have been listening all semester and if you have done okay on your tests and quizzes.  And then you will be relieved when it is over,  BUT you will still have the finals on the last days of school.  You have to hang in there and stay strong until the last exam is taken. Be here every day and pay attention and don’t sleep during class!!!    AND….. no zeros.

SPRING BREAK IS HERE !!!!

March31

It’s finally here – that time where even if you don’t have anywhere to go, you make arrangements to go the beach because everybody else is and you don’t want to be left out…. Me?  I’m going to Pensacola because I want to go and I used to live there and the sand is white and the gulf breeze is ALWAYS blowing.  What’s there NOT to like??    I’m not leaving today though and I’m glad.  Today marks the opening of Suntrust Park and after the fire on Interstate 85 last night and with all the people leaving to go out of town for Spring Break…. well the interstate will be at a standstill.  Good Luck out there today and this evening.

Be ready to come back and Hunker down for the last weeks of school – please get rid of you zeros and stay strong until the end of the YEAR! Here is my information if you need anything:  shirley.fisher@cobbk12.org  and the number is 678-494-7844

THE prom, March Madness, Spring Break

March17

Lots to do!!!  I can’t wait for the PROM… I love to see all the dresses and how well everyone “cleans up” !!  I hope everyone has a good time.  And March madness…I don’t really know what I’m doing, just like coaching basketball, but I love the sport and all the excitement that comes with it.  And Spring Break….ahhhhhhhh. Just to get in the car and drive to the nearest sand – nothing like it in this world.  Why is it that the sound of waves and water can just make you forget about ALL your troubles and take you away, just like Calgon?

Ok back to life, back to reality.  GET YOUR GRADES UP – time is flying by and you want to be sitting at an A or at least a B – no C’s, D’s or F’s and certainly NO Zeros.  Get on it and you’ll be FI….Totes Cool…. Bruh.    How’m I doing?????

Here’s some important info:

CODE SERIOUS

March10

Well, talk about a scary 15 minutes…..not knowing what was going on but being told we are in a “Code Red” and to lock the doors and turn out the lights… I was with my small group reading a test in Astronomy and after the shock of it, we sprang into action.  But we learned that we were too loud.  You almost have to quit talking and start using gestures to get things done.  We actually put a table against the door and then added a file cabinet to block the door.  After about 15 minutes, we were cleared to come out of the Code Red and to resume our day.  I was so thankful to be alive and to have my students with me be okay.  Our principal and administrators did a great job of jumping into action and protecting our school and our property.  Thanks to everyone for cooperating and being flexible in this stressful situation.

So since it’s back to normal, get rid of your zeros and get your grades up.  Did you think I would FORGET??????
