Tutoring over the summer

If you plan to tutor SBPS kids over the summer at the school, you will need to do a few things:

1)    Book the space in School Dude (be flexible if the space is being cleaned, etc.)

2)    Tell parents to pay you through SBPS (make a check out to SBPS, or cash goes to SBPS) and you will be issued a check through payroll with appropriate taxes taken out

3)    Let Nancy F and Carol know the time/day of your tutoring sessions

Faculty Birthdays & Baptisms - Info needed from you!

As discussed at the end of the school year, I would like to do something celebrating your Baptism date (or date of another important religious event of your life.)  (You don't have to give the year :), just the month and date.)  If you already answered with a date, please go in and add your birthday.
