Today we took our Objective 1 vocabulary quiz. Because we used GradeCam, your child got their scores today. (Yay!). I love this app because they get to see their grades immediately and, with the push of a button, they go into PS! Log in to check your child's score. When I showed them their grades today, I suggested that anyone who got below a 70 to retake it next week. YES, I AM ALLOWING RETAKES ON THIS QUIZ! Push your child to take advantage of this opportunity. I told them they have to see me next week outside of class time in order to retake it. They can do it during lunch or homeroom, but the best time would be during my "tutoring" session on Tuesday from 6:45am-7:45. Even if your child got a 90% and wants to improve, they are more than welcome to retake the quiz! Please e-mail me or send a note with your child if they will be coming Tuesday morning so I know how many quizzes to print, or if you have any questions. :)
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! :)
