Information/ Reminders/ Announcements:


Internet Access

Please be sure to inform your teachers if you do not have access to internet from home.  I have asked your teachers to provide you with a printed syllabus if you cannot view the portals. Also, teachers will be writing the daily HW on the board to ensure those without internet have the information needed.


Mid-Semester Grades

Please remember that your mid-semester grades are “unofficial” and do not become part of your permanent record. The purpose of the grades is to give you an understanding of your progress thus far in the first semester.


If you received a grade that you are not pleased with, it is important to develop a plan of action to improve the grade. You should speak with your teacher and discuss what you can do to improve- i.e.  Submit a draft of written work prior to due date to receive teacher feedback? Extra help- especially prior to assessments? Suggested study skills?  Time management under control?


Remember, YOU are driving your educational experience and it is important to take responsibility for your work. Your teachers are there to support you but you need to demonstrate the commitment and motivation to reach your potential.
