Today's Quote:



Announcements:


Parents, Grades are posted to the portal and have been finalized. Please look at your student's grades. I really need help motivating some of the unmotivated students.


Today's Lateral Thinking question:

During World War II, several British naval spies on the lookout for enemy ships and activities, posed as Canadian lobster fishermen. They had large numbers of plastic, orange colored lobsters made for their covert operations. These lobsters came in various sizes with all the authentic markings. At night, the spies loaded the lobsters into traps and threw them overboard. At daybreak, they would hoist the traps aboard ship. The locals spotted them as fraudulent fishermen from quite a distance. How were they so easily detected?

Today's Class:


Today, students will go to their new semester two classes. That means none of my students will change, but their schedules may. Carefully review your schedule. In every period today we have a school wide review of the rules, responsibilities, and expectations. If you missed today, you will be responsible for the information contained in these power points. You can view them here:
