***Guest Teacher: Ms. Taylor will be here for me Wednesday, April 10-Monday, April 15. I am so grateful to have her with our students for the four days I will be out. My sons are both competing in Dayton, OH this year for the WGI Winter Percussion World Championships, and I am helping to chaperone the trip for EHS.  Our students are familiar with Ms. Taylor and know that they will have a productive time during my absence. I am providing EACH student with a copy of the PBIS Reflection for Guest Teacher Expectations. I want for each student to remember his/her role in the success of the classroom environment and the effect on their learning.  IF a student is unable to  behave appropriately and/or continues to disrupt/distract/etc, then those individual students will be assigned the reflection and to get your signature of acknowledgment on it. My hope is that none of the students would warrant one.
