What a busy week we've had! Two labs and a FLIP down, we are almost finished with our first unit (yay!). We will be reviewing Monday and Tuesday next week, playing some review games Wednesday, and taking our test on Thursday. Please make sure your child is studying for this test by going over class notes, vocabulary, and the information posted under the resources tab.
Also, please check your child's grades on PowerSchools. I have updated everything that I have thus far. With the exception of one misplaced Video Rubric in my 1st period (I have talked with them and we are trying to figure out what happened to their rubric), all work that currently has no grade recorded online was not turned in to me. The majority of the grade declines that I have seen in my class are either from not doing the optional corrections or not turning in work. It is now too late to turn in any missing work from before the interim, but the new stuff may be turned in up to two weeks after the due date and will be subjected to a late penalty of 10% off each week.
Last, I am working on adding a curriculum and standards map and a page for my CIA. If they are not up this weekend, they will definitely be up by the end of next week.
**This weekend I will be out of town, traveling for the major part of Friday and Sunday. I will do my best to check my e-mail, but may not be able to get back to you until late Sunday. I apologize for this inconvenience. Hope you all have a great weekend! :)
Extra help is available every Tuesday from 3:30-4:30. Please remember that you MUST fill out a permission form (below) and turn it in the day before in order to attend.
For some of our projects this year, I will be asking for parent volunteers. If you already know that you would like to volunteer in the future, please contact me. Otherwise, the need for parent volunteers will be included in the weekly update. Thank you! :)
