attention all students:

if you are able to bring in a color photograph of any musician that has overdosed on drugs or alcohol you will receive a 100 for any missing assignment or test and 100 points extra credit in the real extra credit column.

read that again!

it must be a color photograph and it must be turned in to me before 1st period on friday.  we are trying to get our door looking sharp before the door decorating contest is judged.

hello wonderful students!  i have to leave today at 12.  6th will meet in the band room.  there will be a sub.  please do the review “monobloco – pot pouri…” if you have not already done so.  then, please utilize the smart board – it will be on – and watch the videos i have posted.  we need to introduce our selves to marcus santos (dear friend and teacher of mine). we have an opportunity to bring him, jorge alabe, and nani to school this year.  the only way it can happen is if we all sell 2 boxes of candy.  i am putting jocelyn and scott in charge.  today you need to take 2 boxes.  consider all the cool things we can do.  thank you for everything you do.  i am having a great year.  see you friday if you are bought a ticket to unplugged.  thanks.  if not, do what you need to do.
