Each week labs will be competing against each other to see who is the best! Each week there will be a different discipline issue that is tracked. The lab with the least amount of infractions will win and move on towards the championship. We will have a winning morning lab and a winning afternoon lab that will compete at the end for the championship title. March Madness will begin February 11th. There will be weekly prizes for the labs that win their battle. To win, the PBIS committee will track overall lab attendance, tardies to class, discipline for disruption and disrespect, and overall discipline. Good Luck!
This Friday will be a special dress down day! Please pay $1.00 to your first period teacher if you choose to participate! REMEMBER NO HOLES/ NO HOODIES AND NO SWEATPANTS!
Hey, do you ever wonder where the money that WE raise from dress down days go? Let me explain:
The proceeds from the dress down days is win-win for all………
It gives students and staff a chance to enjoy a casual, relaxed day and most importantly the funds go to help different groups and students offset expenses for competitions, help with prizes for contest, and to aid when a hardship may arise for students at GCCC….. sounds great, right?
