Welcome back! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving break
Here’s the weekly email.
Christmas Break Schedule:
The hours that will be available over Christmas break (12/18-12/31) are now visible on the schedule. Right now the weekly hour limit is set to zero and no one can pick up hours. Each weekday between Wednesday 12/1 – Friday 12/10 at 6 PM the weekly hour limit will be increased by 5 hours. In this way employees will be able to pick up shifts in 5 hour increments. Shifts will be picked up in the same way that you pick up hours that have been put up for sub.
Please remember these mandatory procedures as you pick up hours:
Leave single open hours at the beginning or end of a shift.
Leave single hours in between a shift that you pick up and someone else’s shift.
Pick up every other hour so that you can hold a block of hours for yourself.
Hold shifts for other employees.
Be considerate of your fellow employees and use common sense as you pick up hours.
Again, these procedures are mandatory, and failure to comply will disqualify you from working over the Christmas break.
Resident students may work 40 hrs/week beginning the first day of reading days. International students can begin working 40 hrs/week the day after finals. Resident students that are graduating at the end of this semester can work two weeks past graduation (until 12/31), but international students who are graduating may not work after the last day of finals.
If you have questions please feel free to contact me, your group leader, or any shift supervisor.
I hope you had a phenomenal Thanksgiving. We chopped down an olive tree in my in-law’s yard. Olive wood is hard.
1. Don’t forget the training deadline is this Saturday (Dec. 4). All training class projects and TIPs points must be in by that date.
2. Make sure you have clicked the “Enrolled” button for each of the training classes you attended. If you do not do this, I will become angry and use my Jedi powers against you, etc.
3. Also, if you haven’t e-mailed me about your training raise, I highly recommend you do so.
4. Furthermore, the TIPs contest ends at 11:59 PM tomorrow (Tuesday)! The current standings are as follows:
Average TIPs Points

These are the Top 5 groups (by group leader) in the TIPs contest as of 11/29.
From the OCs:
We will be out this week taking pictures for the best dressed contest! Be ready! And remember to watch the blog and the website for voting starting either Thursday or Friday.
I hope you all had a wonderful break. The Christmas Party will be on Thursday December 9th from 6:30 – 8:30 PM (the polls were split right down the middle so we compromised). We will be having a Dessert Potluck, Haiku contest, and many other things, so we look forward to seeing you all there.
