To all students- there has been an increase in trash and graffiti in the hallways, library, and lunch recently, which is leading to a lack of respect and responsibility for our building.  If this behavior continues, we will be canceling break time and will be dismissing by tables at lunch.  Please show some Clocker Pride for our school.
