The 3rd Quarter ended on March 13. Students have the opportunity to improve their grade if they wish by following the instructions provided and reading the email that was sent to students on their school Gmail account on Monday, March 30. If you are happy with your 3rd Quarter grade, then you need to take no additional action at this time. Information about 4th Quarter assignments will be coming to you soon.

    I miss you all and am having a hard time believing that I didn't get to say goodbye.  This is my last year of teaching and I will be retiring after 35 years.

    If you are missing assignments from 3rd quarter, I will mark them as excused. So don't worry about getting missing work done.  If your grade is low, just email me and I will see what I can do to help you bring your grade up.  sally.lovell@poquoson.k12.va.us
