8th Grade must check in every day.

 

 

Important District Grading Message for Marking Period Three: 

  • All assignments that were completed by March 13th will be graded and counted in a traditional manner. 

  • Any assignment given during our remote learning (past three weeks) in marking period 3 can only serve to enhance a student’s grade; these assignments cannot be detrimental to a student’s grade.  

  • As such, in powerschool for Marking period 3, any remote learning assignment that you see in PURPLE is an assignment that has been “exempted” by the teacher because that grade would be detrimental to the student’s grade.

 

  Students: Please log in to Google Classroom for additional details on assignments.

  

 IF YOU OR YOUR PARENT / GUARDIAN ARE GOING TO EMAIL ME, PLEASE INCLUDE THE STUDENT NAME AND PERIOD  IN THE SUBJECT LINE
