G-HOUSE TV AND INTERCOM ANNOUNCEMENTS: Teachers: Please be cognizant of allowing students to listen to morning and homeroom announcements. Many are important for students to get info on sports, events, activities, or educational opportunities. Some teachers are hanging the phones  up or not turning the t.v. on for G-House. These actions deprive the students of notifications and they miss out. Thank you.                 Don Papa
