Thursday and Friday January 7th & 8th, 2016

Today's Quote:


In all class periods we went over the school rules and responsibilities and reiterated what our expectations in class are. I stated that I strive to give at least 100% each day and sometimes I have days where I only feel like giving 5% and those are the days when I have to find a reason to get out of bed. I pointed out that's it's okay to have those kinds of days once in awhile, but you can't have them all the time or even a majority of the tie or you'll never grow. We also rehashed our procedures for emergency drills, when a substitute is present, and mundane things we do every day. If you ever have a questions or need clarification, just check the student success bulletin board next to the door. It's goig to be a fantastic second semester!

Brain Bender:

The Isle of Beguile is a place where the natives always lie, and the visitors always tell the truth. Shadow is interviewing prospective candidates for police work, the requirements being that the person must be a truth teller. While interviewing a young man for the job, the applicant suddenly volunteers that the woman in the line behind him had confided that she is a native. Is the young man in the interview qualified for the job? Describe how you concluded this fact.
