PTEC Daily Announcements 5-10-2017
If there is an announcement that you need to tell your parents about, please write it in your planner.
  • Wear a red shirt on Friday to support our troops. Make sure your shirt has sleeves and does not have any inappropriate material. You are to still wear jeans, and remember no skinny jeans or jeans with holes of frays.
  • There are 15 days of school left. Make it your mission to make them 15 great days… it’s all in your control.
  • There are only a few more days left for you to be able to turn in missing work or to retake any quizzes or tests, so be sure to get that done. I understand the desire to not want to work, but you choosing to not work is only hurting yourself. If repeating a grade or a class is the route you want to go, okay, but there comes a time when you will not be allowed to do that. Your teachers and administration will bend over backwards for you, but we can only do so much. The rest is up to you.
  • The mission of PTEC is to prepare students to enter the workforce with the skills necessary to be successful in a trade while also having the character and work ethic to become the most valuable members in their chosen trade. Students, work ethic doesn’t start developing once you find your first job. It starts now with the way you take on work in school and at home.
Today’s carline members are Mr. Cooper and Mr. Reynolds.
*Say the Pledge*
Teachers, please check to see that all shirts are tucked in, no one is wearing a hoodie, and that no one is chewing gum.
Have a great day PTEC Panthers!!!

If there is an announcement that you need to tell your parents about, please write it in your planner.
  • Wear a red shirt on Friday to support our troops. Make sure your shirt has sleeves and does not have any inappropriate material. You are to still wear jeans, and remember, no skinny jeans or jeans with holes or frays.
  • There are 16 days of school left. Make it your mission to make them 16 great days… it’s all in your control.
  • If you are on the lunchroom cleanup crew, remember to stay after lunch and help clean up.
  • The rule about phones… phones are only to be used as a music playing device and only in study hall. You pull out your phone, select your playlist, and put your phone away. When class is over, you pull out your phone, shut off the music, and put your phone and headphones away again. Some teachers may allow students to use their phones to make note cards or research a topic in class. If teachers allow students to go to the commons to work on a project where they will need their phones, the teacher has to write it on the pass. Phones are not to be played with in the commons. The same phone/music rule applies to the commons as it does study hall- music only. We will be collecting phones everywhere except the lunchroom unless we see or hear something inappropriate. Some are starting to take advantage of the ability to use their phones, and it is ruining it for everyone. You know the rule, simply follow it.
  • Those that play outside in the morning, you are responsible for making it to class on time. If it rains and the ground is even a little muddy, do not play in that mud because you track in a lot of terra firma, leave it all over the halls, and you have not been the ones to clean it up. If you happen to start cleaning up after yourself, soil conditions won’t be much of a problem. Please see Mrs. Warren if you have questions.
  • You may have started to see older students hanging out in the halls longer, and they have already started to help you all make better choices. Older people are here to help younger people learn, grow and be good. We ask for your good. We are searching for your good. There is a time for goofing and clowning, but that time is usually not at school. We all have to get along and when you disrupt the learning environment, even in a study hall, it affects everyone around you and is not showing your good.  School isn’t here to torture you but to help you grow and learn about the world around you. Many of you treat homework, this place, and your teachers like there is a conspiracy to stop your enjoyment of life. It is quite the opposite. We are here to help.
  • The mission of PTEC is to prepare students to enter the workforce with the skills necessary to be successful in a trade while also having the character and work ethic to become the most valuable members in their chosen trade. Students, work ethic doesn’t start developing once your find your first job. It starts now, with the way you take on work in school and at home.

  • We are going to start a classroom competition with the collection of “Box Tops”.  Those box tops will provide funding for our school. If you are not sure what I am talking about, ask Mrs. Spiller to show you an example. The competition will be explained soon.
  • Next week we start state testing and most of you will have early releases so let your parents know.
  • April 21 and 24 are both 11:30 early releases. Again, let your parents know. Teachers, after the announcements, please stress the importance of their parents knowing this information.
  • Teachers, please hand out the Panther Post today during the class in which you were asked to hand it out.
  • I ask you all to be thankful. If you focus on one thing that you don’t have or can’t have, you forget about all of the great things around you that you do have. This negative focus darkens your mind, and you succumb to more negative things. When you focus on what you don’t have or on situations that displease you, your mind also becomes darkened. You take for granted sunshine, flowers, sharp saws, working drills, caring teachers, an awesome school, life, and the countless other gifts that are all around you. I ask you today, be thankful.

If there is an announcement that you need to tell your parents about, please write it in your planner.
  • Students, this Friday is going to be a Rewards Day for those who have earned it.  Your goal is to turn in all assignments on time for the week, receive no write-ups, and demonstrate excellent character and behavior each day. If you don’t earn Rewards Day this week, you can still work hard to earn it after Spring Break.
  • Sophomores, your PSAT letters of consent were due yesterday. Even if you do not want to fill out the questionnaire, I need you to turn in the form signed and you can sign your own form.
  • Students, please remind your parents that Friday is an early release. You will be dismissed at 11:30 so be sure to tell your parents. Teachers, please verify that every student knows it is an early release tomorrow.
  • There is a ping pong table in the main concourse on the west side of the building. We should all thank the Flynt family for donating such a great tool to the school. There is to be no sitting on the table, spectators may not lean on the table, and spectators must not be too close to the table or they will be hit. There will be rules posted near the table and they will be followed or you will forfeit your privilege to play.
  • Rules are here to give us a path to follow. If there were no rules, there would be chaos; that is a proven scientific theory. If you break a rule because you feel like it doesn’t apply to you and everyone did the same, we would have chaos. You must follow the rules for there to be order. Here at PTEC it is that much more important because if you do not follow the rules, someone could lose a finger, a hand, an eye, or their life. You all are very young, and these rules may seem ridiculous, but they are in place for a reason. That reason will make PTEC great one day. If you are not sure about something, simply ask.

  • The mission of PTEC is to prepare students to enter the workforce with the skills necessary to be successful in a trade while also having the character and work ethic to become the most valuable members in their chosen trade. Business people are still telling us that the number one thing they want from their employees is summed up in one word- character. They want employees to show up to work on time and do the work for the entire time they are on the clock. They do not want them playing on their phones when they should be working. We asked if they wanted them to know how to do the job, and they said, “Nope, I can teach that. I cannot teach them to have a good work ethic.” This means our mission is extremely relevant. Students, every day at school is a day to practice this work ethic, so when it comes time to get a job, you will be ready to rock and roll.

  • Next week the district will NOT be able to provide any lunches. If you did NOT order a fundraiser lunch, you will have to bring your own. Teachers, when the announcements are over please reiterate this with them.
  • Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Thank you to Mr. Mattson for announcing this morning that there is to be no pinching of any person if they do not have on green. In regards to that, I just thought I should also say, no pinching of any person for not wearing green.
  • Students, many of you are going to lose the privilege of working in the commons because you are using it as an opportunity to socialize instead of work. The commons is a place of collaboration and work that is to be done quietly. If you are not working quietly, you will be asked to return to class. If you are returned to class, you lose the privilege of the commons for a while.
  • Students, make sure you are checking in with your teachers before you go and assist someone somewhere.
  • Attention students and teachers – the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Museum is free and open to the public every third Friday of the month. GE Johnson Construction Company gave a very generous donation for this to happen so please take advantage of it.

We asked if they wanted them to know how to do the job and they said, “Nope, I can teach that. I can’t teach them to have a good work ethic.” This means our mission is extremely relevant. So teachers, please reinforce and require this type of behavior; students, work at developing this type of character.

  • Students, today is a 1:30 release. If you know that your parent is not picking you up until later, please call home. Teachers, allow them to use your phone during passing period.
  • Teachers and students – Friday is St. Patrick’s Day. You are all welcome to wear something green. You may NOT paint your faces.
  • Students, many of you are going to lose the privilege of working in the commons because you are using it as an opportunity to socialize instead of work. The commons is a place of collaboration and work that is to be done quietly. Students are not to be in the commons without a pass from a teacher. If you are asked to produce a pass and cannot, you will be returned to your classroom and may lose access to the commons for a time.
  • Attention tutors, helpers, and workers – if you are not going to be in your study hall because you have another obligation, you must check in with your teacher before you perform this task or you will be marked with an unexcused absence. Check in before you go to work.
  • After the announcements, I need all 10th graders to meet in the commons for about 5 minutes.
  • The mission of PTEC is to prepare students to enter the workforce with the skills necessary to be successful in a trade while also having the character and work ethic to become the most valuable members in their chosen trade. What type of character do you have? How strong is your work ethic? If you never take ownership of your actions, these questions will be hard for you to answer.

If you receive your lunches at free or reduced prices, it will not apply to these lunches. The form that went home Friday talks about the lunches being provided. If we do not get your form by today, you will have to bring your lunch. These lunches will be pre-ordered, and the order cannot be adjusted.
  • The message boards in the hall upstairs are for real responses and should not be wiped off unless you are asked to clear the boards. Do not smudge or swipe through someone’s writing.
  • Parent teacher conferences will be this Thursday evening so release time will be at 1:30. Remind your parents you have an early release.
  • We have been really busy but detentions are on their way back again. Some of you with write-ups will serve an after school detention while repeat offenders will serve some Saturday detentions. I know if someone else is talking, it seems like it’s only fair if you get to talk too but that isn’t okay. You may not see the other student get in trouble and you see yourself get in trouble and think, “That’s not fair.” Teachers do not share with students the consequences of peers. This means it’s nun-ya; you don’t get to know about other kids’ write-ups. If you want to live a happy life, take this piece of advice I heard from a man named Creflo, “It doesn’t matter how other people treat you, all that matters is how you treat people.” This means if you were caught up in how you were treating people and trying to be nice to everyone, you wouldn’t have time to worry about other things.
  • Your PTEC Panther track team had their first meet of the season last night, and they did beautifully. Josh, Tyler, Austin, Joe, Jeff, John, and Jasmine all created new school records at the meet. Several of them were just knocking the rust off of their cleats while the rest were hitting the track for the first time. Way to go Panthers.

If we do not get your form by Wednesday, you will have to bring your lunch. These lunches will be pre-ordered, and the order cannot be adjusted.
  • Fellas, the boys’ bathrooms are still being monitored. You are to sign in. The person doing the monitoring will check the bathroom when you are done; if it is clean, then you can leave. The bathroom monitor is doing his job so do not be rude or disrespectful. If he asks you to stop, wait or sign in with your name, you are to comply.
  • Parent teacher conferences will be this Thursday evening, so release time will be at 1:30. Remind your parents you have an early pick-up.
  • Your PTEC Panther track team has their first meet after school today. Wish them luck.
  • March 24th is an 11:30 release.
  • Students, it is very important that you take school seriously. If you do not do the work, you run the risk of repeating the same grade. I understand that you may not feel like doing it or understand its relevance, but that doesn’t change the fact it has to get done. You are, by law, required to go to school, so instead of repeating every grade multiple times, get it done the first time. If you are unsure of something, ask your teacher. But if you are just not doing the work, change your attitude and your thinking to that of success.
  • The mission of PTEC is to prepare students to enter the workforce with the skills necessary to be successful in a trade while also having the character and work ethic to become the most valuable members in their chosen trade. You are not working yet, but just like the track team runs every day after school, it isn’t in vain. They run hard at practice so they can run even harder at meets. The same thing goes with school. If you put in a solid, strong effort, you will see your efforts rewarded later. Work hard today for a good paycheck tomorrow.
Today’s carline members are going to be at a track meet.  Teachers, if we could get some volunteers to cover carline that would be great.

    • Lunchroom cleanup crews – meet Mrs. Greene by the back closet in the lunchroom as soon as you are dismissed from lunch. The first lunch crew is Chariot S., Anapaula S., Samantha S., and Sam S..  The second lunch cleanup crew is Abe C., Lucas C., Michael D., Liam D., and Austin E..
    • Students, don’t forget that this Friday is Rewards Day for those who have earned it. It will be the last HOUR of school this Friday.  Your goal is to turn in all assignments on time for the week, receive no write-ups, and demonstrate excellent character and behavior each day. If you don’t earn Rewards Day this week, you can still work hard to earn it after Spring Break.
    • Next week the district will NOT provide any lunches. PTEC will provide fundraiser lunches for $3.00 a lunch. If you receive your lunches at free or reduced prices, it will not apply to these lunches. The form that went home Friday talks about all of the lunches that will be provided. If we do not get your form by Wednesday, you will have to bring your lunch. These lunches will be pre-ordered and we will not be able to adjust the order.
    • Bay Blade Club, your new meeting day is on Thursdays from 3:45-4:45. If you have any questions, please see Aden Cooley.
    • Students, we have been seeing more and more damaged books. Cover them with paper and you will not see any more damage accrue. Do not cover your books with a fabric cover; they pull the edges of the books in and ruin them.  If you are missing your book, there is a giant pile in the front office that will cost you 25 cents per book to get back. If you leave your things on top of the lockers or the floors your items will be removed and placed in the front office. You need to use your locker to store your books.
    • Parent teacher conferences will be this Thursday evening so you will be released at 1:30.
    • March 24th is an 11:30 release.
    • The mission of PTEC is to prepare students to enter the workforce with the skills necessary to be successful in a trade while also having the character and work ethic to become the most valuable members in their chosen trade. I am asking you again, what are you doing about your character? Are you becoming a person of integrity? Are you working on having a positive attitude in every situation? Have you realized yet that your teachers only provide you with the knowledge and that it’s up to you to take it in and use that knowledge?
Today’s carline members are Ms. Bradford and Mrs. Harris.
*Say the Pledge*
Teachers, please check to see that all shirts are tucked in, no one is wearing a hoodie, and that no one is chewing gum.

    • The mission of PTEC is to prepare students to enter the workforce with the skills necessary to be successful in a trade while also having the character and work ethic to become the most valuable members in their chosen trade. Good employees do what is expected of them at all times. Great employees go above and beyond what is expected of them.  If you are not doing your homework every day, if you are not participating and doing your bell work every day, if you are disrupting classes frequently, it is now time to stop and start working on becoming good, and great students. We know you can!
Today’s carline members are Mrs. Douglas and Mrs. Selck.
