As the end of the first semester draws near, students’ and teachers’ responsibilities increase by having to prepare for finals, get grades in, and turn in their textbooks.

If students have an individual textbook issued to them for a semester long class, they need to turn them into the assistant principal secretaries’ desk prior to leaving for winter break on Dec. 15.

Teachers that teach 18-week courses, whose students have individual textbooks issued to them, need to schedule a textbook check-in date and time starting now. Do so with Odalis Smith at the assistant principal secretaries’ desk at your earliest convenience.

Teachers with class sets of textbooks will keep their books through the end of the 2017-2018 school year.
