A few reminders and important dates:

Before you leave the prep room (376 FASB), please make sure it is cleaned, organized, and ready for the next person. The table should always be cleared before you exit the room. That room is used by a lot of the people, including faculty, staff, and other students. So it is critical (and the considerate thing to do) that we all do our part to keep it a functional work space.

You need to make sure ALL your rock specimens are cleaned out of your classrooms so the rooms will be ready for the new semester. This includes any specimens that are used for final exams. Please clean off the counter tops and clean out the drawers.

Look for an email about the end of semester cleaning day. This is mandatory for all TAs.

Please be diligent about closing and locking interior doors (including offices, workspace, and classrooms) when no one is in the room. TAs and teaching Faculty, this includes locking classroom doors once class is done if they room is no longer needed. There have been incidents of people rummaging through offices and stealing equipment. Also, do not leave any exterior doors propped open and make sure they fully close behind you.

Throughout the semester, if you create any exercises that utlize one of the rock/fossil slabs we have adoring the walls in our building, please submit them using this online form: https://forms.gle/Ywibg25mhn6TFKp7A. We are building a collection for use by future classes.
