During the planning day we talked about our greatest needs and we also talked about a dress code and a formula to set up classes in September.
Dress Code: To wear tops with spaghetti straps that are at least 3cm wide.
To not wear midriiff tops.
To wear shorts that are one hand width above the knee.
To not wear t-shirts that have inappropriate messages on them.
Class Setup: Student placement is based upon learning, and to meet educational needs.
Requests for student placement for September will be taken provided they are in
writing and address educational needs.
