Free breakfast on Monday

April 8th, 2011


If you’re taking the AIMS test on Monday, McDonalds will give you a free breakfast from 6am to 9am. It’s Monday only, so make sure to take them up on their offer. As a reminder, we start out with science and writing on Monday.

Hoops for the House this Friday!

Come to the Highland High gym this Friday at 5pm to see the staff from HJHS take on GrJHS to raise money for the House of Refuge.

As promised, I will be the tallest librarian on the court.

Read Across America

March 2nd, 2011

Today is Read Across America, a day to, well, read in celebration of Theodore Geisel’s/Dr. Seuss’s birthday.

What am I reading today?

24 Girls in 7 Days by Alex Bradley. So funny.

Play the Twilight Zone theme.

Today I received two e-mails from two different people. They were next to each other in the list of messages and both had the subject header “2 things”, both spelled the same way. And they both were on an even hour sent six minutes into the hour. On top of that, they weren’t SPAM.


Congratulations to Spencer and Dayton

Thoughts from superintendent hopefuls

July 27th, 2010

Check out the table of information here.

It’s interesting to see who has a background in education. I’m glad AZCentral included that. Also, one candidate said that she would visit all schools. Arizona has a lot of schools. That’s an interesting promise. I wonder if she has a killer iPhone app that manages her responsibilities really well, freeing up lots of time. Or an app that makes her teleport – one or the other.

Testing out social media buttons

July 3rd, 2010

I’ve added some social media buttons to the tops of the articles. I’m testing them out with this article. If you want the code for how to do this, message me on one of the social media sites.

Students, our district will have blocked the buttons but people who aren’t on our network can use the buttons.
