Hello all! I hope you had a great Spring Break! I am posting a sketch of the week. Please note that per new county guidelines, no grade will go down, based on current coursework. However, students will still have the opportunity to improve their grades. Even though you may be happy with your current grade, I strongly encourage you to continue to engage with you digital coursework, in preparation for next year's course expectations. You will notice that the workload for this course has been scaled back significantly, in order to give you an opportunity to focus on specific skills that will help you be successful in your classes next year. As always, please feel free to contact me through Remind if you have any questions. This week, I will be putting in grades that improve your average. Have a great week, and stay healthy!
This is a general outline of this month's activities and is subject to change, based on
the needs of the students. Please continue to check the blog daily, for detailed information on class activities, assignments, requirements, and deadlines.
Hello students! I'm so sad to still be away from you all! I bet that some of you are pretty bored at this point. I will be posting a Flipgrid tomorrow so all of you can let me know what you have been doing to stay sane during your hiatus from school and other activities. Also, creative home activities do you have planned for Spring Break. I know what I have planned, not assigning any work! But alas, we still have this week, but I have cut back a bit on the work load. See the list below for tasks you should be working on and/or submitting by the end of this week.
This Week's Digital Learning Outline
Hello all! I miss you a bunch! It has been so nice to see some of you on Flipgrid. It seems that many of you prefer to use the Remind feature over the chat, but if you would like to chat with me about your school work, between 10:00 AM-12:00PM, on weekdays, please feel free to click HERE to access the chat document. Remember that even though you may work at your own pace, you are still accountable for the deadlines unless we have made other arrangements. I am recording your grades in my paper grade book, so feel free to reach out if you have questions about your grades. However, you should expect to see the grades recorded on the digital platforms that we are using. See below for a template of this week's activities. You are not required to follow this pacing. However, you are required to meet the stipulated deadline, barring any exigent circumstances for which you should make me aware. One last thing! I hope to see many of your bright and shining faces in our Zoom meeting. We will be reading chapter five of The Great Gatsby! See the invitation below.
