PLEASE CHECK EDLINE 04/25/2011
Students (and parents)
Check edline... it's near the end of the school year, but we aren't done yet!! You still have to complete assignments and many of you aren't!
I gave an opportunity last week to turn in late work with no consequences... many didn't even bother!! It's difficult to overcome a zero on a 40+ point assignment.
** Personal timeline assignment is due Friday, worth 100 points in Math.

2nd Semester Math Class- Accountability 01/19/2011
Parents and students,
As our second semester started, I had hoped for a better start. It seems that a lot of students still have their mind on Christmas break.
There are several studetns with missing assignements - some classwork, some hoemwork. There have only been 6 for the semester so far.
I have graded today's test, and the test grades seem to have a direct correlation to the amount of homework/classwork turned in.
Each student that has missing work has recieved a slip indicating what they are missing. They have until Jan 25 to turn it in. This is beyond my normal allowances and will be done this time only.
Please help to remind your child that all work is required, not just a passing grade on the test.

Look for more information regarding what your students are working on in Social Studies within the next week or so! In fact, ask your student how they are going to change the world...I bet they have at least one good idea.
