To sign up for event supervision to satisfy your requirements, contact Jacob Headley for information about event dates and sign-ups. You can also satisfy part of this requirement by acting as a supervisor for one of the student-run clubs - just ask him!

BTSN

Twice every school year, teachers convene in the gym and spend the evening meeting the families of their students, briefly discussing their ongoing performance. It is an important opportunity to make the connections that make us a Royal Family! These events occur once every semester. Teacher attendance is guaranteed and accounts for a mandatory portion of your supervision hours. For specifics, please contact administration.

Advisors

Please make sure you learn the extensions and procedures for emergencies or time-sensitive situations. Your student advising team will assist you in managing emergencies and disciplinary situations.
