NOTE: I put grades into the gradebook for last week's Photo assignment, in which staff were assigned a Deadline Two teacher to take photos and create stories. This was to have been emailed to Mr. B. and the Teacher page creator on Monday. I received a total of 7 of these photos and stories. If you completed this project, please email your photos and stories to Mr. B. and the page author TODAY, so that we can get this info on our pages!

I checked. Over the last two weeks of photo assignments (one was STUDENT LIFE PHOTOS and one was TEACHER ACTIVITY PHOTOS), we have a total of 20 missing assignments from staff. 7 staff members have Cs, Ds or Fs in this class because they will not complete photo assignments.

Do you have any GROUP PHOTOS of Freshmen, Sophomores or Juniors (3-4 or more students in one photo)? We need them as filler photos for our MUG SHOT pages, please get them to Mr. B. or to Lexi right away!
