    Things are starting to pick up and we will be using computers more often. Please remember to bring earbuds or headphones. 

    ** an incentive for positive behavior and academic excellence, I have decided that "some"  Fridays are "Listen While You Work" days. If students have met Jaguar expectations during the week, usage of cell phones ONLY during SOCIAL STUDIES with MRS. THOMAS may be allowed. 

    Students are only allowed to listen to instrumental music, headphones are required, low volume and cell phones are not to be retrieved from their resting place once music has been selected. Students without cell phones may be granted use of mp3 players or their computers. Music pages are not to be visible once music has been selected.
