Here is your weekly update!
1. GEB Update
Thank you to EVERYONE who helped judge, donated food and to the kids who made the tournament an extremely smooth endeavor. With as easy as this was, I have full faith that we will be able to be excellent hosts for the NSDA LD, PFD, and IE national qualifiers in April! I hope some of you who were first time judges saw it was easier than you may have thought!
They are in powerschool and updated. There are two reasons grades may have dropped.
The minimum was 15, and some folks missed that mark by a little, others by a lot. Students who were unsuccessful at helping recruit judges for this tournament will have the opportunity to make those points up in April once we start recruiting judges for the qualifiers.
This is a new requirement after each tournament, some students may have done them but just not shared their forms with me. Everyone will be reminded about this in class tomorrow (I only saw 8th hour today) and once they fix it and notify me, I will fix their grades.
3. This Weekend
We are headed to Emporia on Friday and 2 spots in Johnson County on Saturday. We have an EARLY depart time on Saturday, so please check for the appropriate tournament.
Travel Sheet 3--Emporia Fri, BVW and SMNW
We voted, and we have a design. The shirt/design the students selected came out to around $16 a shirt. Some students said $16 is ok, some said it is a challenge, and we agreed that if you want a shirt, sign up and if you have a few extra bucks to kick in, feel free to do so to help cover the costs of folks who want one but may not be able to afford it (if you fall in that camp, I need to know ASAP!)
Here is the sign-up sheet (if parents want one, feel free!)
