Our principal, Mr. Fleming, sat down with the Lobo Howl and discussed a few things he’d like students to think about.  Here are some principles he’d like students to consider:

Wasting time is also an issue, don't mess around during the five minute breaks between classes, because if you do mess around there is a chance you could be late.
