Many people’s circumstances dictate their stances. They become powerless victims of other people’s actions and attitudes. The truth is, you do not always have power over what happens to you, but you do have complete control over what happens in you. You can choose to overcome. You can choose to get past something. You can choose to not let it control you and destroy you. If you need help learning how to make the choice to not let your circumstances control you in a negative way please come talk to Mrs. Warren at lunch.

• Tomorrow and other Fridays, you may NOT wear a hoodie but you may pay to wear a hat or a t-shirt.
• Dear Students,
The school policy states that, “Cell phones and other communication devices may only be used before school, during passing period, lunch, and after school.” –page 11 Student Handbook
Mr. Mattson is permitted to issue music passes for study hall only for students that have zero behavioral referrals and zero missing assignments. Teachers are not permitted to ignore this policy, with the exception of using electronic devices for teacher directed and teacher monitored educational purposes.
At this time the use of all electronic devices is prohibited in all classes, with the exception of teacher directed and teacher monitored educational uses. You may use your phone before school, after school, and at lunch. The use of the phone must be appropriate at all times before school, after school, and at lunch. You may use your phone for communication purposes with your family during passing periods, but you must be on time to your next class.
This is not the decision of your teachers or other school leaders, it is the decision of Mr. Daugherty. Beginning the second semester you may earn a music pass for study hall only if you have zero behavioral write-ups from this date forward and you have zero missing assignments. There will be no exceptions to this rule.
Our goal is to help you learn, not to give you time to listen to music or play video games. You may do those things before school, after school, lunch, or at home.
I want you to be successful and doing well in school is a very important part of that goal.
Thank you,
Mr. Daugherty

• Students, if you have to cross Constitution you need to go up to Peterson Rd. and cross near Mavericks. Do not cross where there is no light.
• We are PTEC. What does that mean to you? To me, PTEC is a group of people who are hardworking with good character coming together to teach others, help others, to grow and learn. The kid on your left and the kid on your right may be going through or have gone through things that you can’t even imagine. What you say and do to them matters. Why choose to say and do mean and hurtful things when you can choose to help, support, and guide them. What you say and do does matter. Do good!

• If you are a PTEC student that purchased a PTEC sweatshirt or hat, be sure to put your name on your clothes so if you take it off, a kid with the same item will know it isn’t theirs because your name is on it. Almost every student at PTEC owns safety goggles, ear protection, tape measures, hammers, and other tools. Please put your name on your items because when you set it down in random places or they fall out of your locker or bag, we can get them back to you. I have a Stanley 25’ tape measure in my office that was left on the floor downstairs a few weeks ago and no one has claimed it.

• Students, parent teacher conferences are on October 18 and 19. You are required to attend with you parent or guardian if a time is scheduled for you.
• You may not enjoy doing homework but it is part of your job as a student. Homework is designed to reinforce what the teacher taught that day in class and not doing it is a weakness in character. Did you know that if you did not pass a class you will have to take it again next year? Your friends will move on to a new subject or even an entirely new grade and you will be left doing the same thing again next year. If you don’t like it this year, you will hate it next year. If you don’t want to have to do the same thing two or more years in a row, participate in class, do the work, and build up your character again. We ask you to have respect for those around you all the time but you also need to have self-respect and help yourself into your future. We believe in you, all you have to do is believe in yourself and if it gets hard, ask for support.
• Students, you are not to be writing and or drawing on your arms. Teachers please watch for this and stop students from putting graffiti on their bodies. Also, let’s talk about dress code. You should be in proper dress from the time you enter the building until you leave the building. Proper dress code means you are in proper pants, shirt tucked in, belt on and no hoodie worn. Hats are only to be warn in shop class.
• The next PTEC Connect isn’t until October 22 but remember to wear your PTEC polo and tan pants.
• Are you still dreaming about your future? I need big dreams with a childlike innocence. Be creative, inspiring, and unique.
