Message Subject Headers
If everyone uses a similar header for messages, they will
be easier to recognize (and locate at some later time). At the end of
each section of this guide, you will find some conventions for subject
headers that may help in the identification of stored messages. For example,
if the messages were arranged by subject headers, all of the teacher "hello"
messages and all of the Classroom Surveys would appear together. These
are suggestions and your Circle may choose to use other conventions
For this example, we will assume that the teacher is Bill
Kennedy from Indian Creek Middle School (IC), New Mexico. Bill decides
to use his last name and students decide to use the school initials with
state initials to mark their messages.
