    1st Quarter Work Sample Early Birds:  Earn a $10.00 Resource Room Coupon per student, here’s how:

    1)  Turn in complete 3rd quarter work samples to the IDEA office on or before Friday, March 1, 2019.  The actual due date for on-time work samples is MARCH 15.  

    2)  If your students need to do a work sample demonstration in person at the office then make an appointment with your contact teacher to do so.

    3)  This is also an excellent opportunity for your students to write and submit a short paragraph about any photos you submit as their PE work samples.

    4Appointments must take place on or before Friday, March 1, 2019.

    5)  Work samples must be complete

    6)  For each set of complete work samples (per student) turned in you will receive a $10.00 Resource Room Coupon.

    7)  If you turn in your work samples at the reception desk they will date stamped.  You can also turn them in after hours at the drop box (looks like a silver/gray mailbox) under the IDEA sign in the parking lot.

    8)  Please make sure your student’s first AND last name, grade and Contact Teacher are legibly listed on EACH page of your Work Samples.  We have over 950 students being served just out of our Fairbanks office so we really need this information on each page so your students can receive proper credit for their work.  Thank you for helping us with this.

    9) If you have questions please check with your contact teacher
