, “Tap Reading” “vote with your feet” “own your pen” and how to

We need to know about tutoring right away. At a minimum we need one 1.5 hour tutoring for Lab
Makeup. We would like to have this tutoring on Thursdays with Mr. Raley. Last year we were allowed
to have 2 after school tutoring sessions and 2 lunchtime sessions, so we know there will be cutbacks, but
the Lab Makeup needs to be a priority.
We also need a class set of whiteboard markers for Ms. Lozano so she can use her whiteboards.
Our current Science Budget is about 1/3 of Bonita’s budget. Why? Where is the money going? We
should have the same budget as a similar school just down the road.
