Mr. Cronin
Mr. Moore


  • Final day of SBAC’s for the week.
  • No quiz tomorrow.
  • Tomorrow we are going to start our two Friday Pinbox 3000 Unit!  Come in ready for a different type of day, ready to work in a team.   Please fill out this form with your preferred role.  While I will do my best, I will not be able to make everyone happy.
  • Due to NTHS, and meetings this AM, I am going to grade during SBAC’s today.
  • Sarah Lewis – visitor tomorrow 9:35 – 10:05.  Be ready.


Thanks for a great night.  Can you find Cawd?


Remember that students go directly to their testing location after lunch.  Do not come back to Cawd, we are going to get into our workload.

Questions on SBAC’s, process, locations, efforts?

11:20 Lunch (30 Minutes)

12:30 Attendance and Article

12:35 Quiet Production Time

12:45 Site Maintenance

(Copy and pasted from Tuesday – same basic idea.  If we are working effectively, we have a longer leash.)

Seniors are going to have time in Cawd during SBACS to work on a number of options:

  • Site Maintenance – first get fully caught up with any missing work.
  • Production Time – work on projects currently assigned.
  • Work on Web Dev college work.
  • Prep for the Game Design Competition
  • Prep for the Skills Web Competition (Jestings and Bouffard do a mini-project with Mr. Moore?)
  • Side work – work of your own design, or your own interests.  This could be Cawd, but also chemistry, algebra, etc.

If you are working, I am going to be fairly flexible in this SBAC window of time for seniors (and Milton juniors).  If I get the feeling you are chillaxing to the max, I am going to have to assign specific work to be done each day, per student.  I do not want to do this.  

We are going to have dailies today of what you worked on.  Our dailies for SBAC’s will be very diverse, and this is perfectly acceptable.


2:05 Dismissal
