BEAT THE BELL CHALLENGE!

Beat The Bell

 

CAN YOU BEAT THE BELL?!?!

Be in the school building before the 8:15am bell rings, and you will have no problem getting to class by 8:25am.
Students with no tardies will earn points towards homeroom competitions, and you may even get a shout out at lunch.

 

What are some ways you can BEAT THE BELL?
- Set your alarm so you have plenty of time to get to school by 8:15am.
- Before bedtime, put your book bag, Chromebook, & ID by the door so it's easy to grab on the way to school.
- Use your time wisely in the hallways & in between classes so you are engaged and ready to learn before the tardy bell rings.
