Memo to Teachers:
In addition to the required minimum no less than absolutely SEVEN action plans you come up with to get these students to achieve impossible heights and believe in themselves and excel despite the fierce opposition they face, you must come up with your own action plan for improving department morale and school spirit. Please submit said plan to administration before 5 p.m. Wednesday.

Memo to Administration
In order to improve teacher morale despite having 40 students in your room in violation of several fire codes, having sections reversed, changed, schedules swapped and swapped again within the first week, and being held solely accountable for all AIMS test scores amid 10 departments, all English teachers will now meet regularly on Wednesday mornings at 8:30 to do a shot of tequila.
