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.
If you would like to work to improve your grade, you can use the assignments from March 18 - March 27 to do this. All of these assignments are still posted on Google Classroom, so you simply need to go there, open the instruction document, and follow the lesson plans. Additionally, there will be a survey posted at 5:00 pm on Monday, March 30 that will allow you to tell me what assignments you would like to have graded. You MUST complete this survey in order for me to grade these assignments. The survey gives you the option of having assignments graded, receiving feedback, or neither of those options. If you choose to have an assignment graded, I will grade it then put it in the gradebook IF it brings up your Q3 grade. If you ask for feedback, I will leave comments on CommonLit or the Google Doc. (Students who ask for feedback only will receive feedback AFTER graded assignments are finished.) If you choose the ‘neither’ option, I will skip over your assignment.
If you do not choose to have any assignments graded, your grade for Q3 will be whatever it currently is.
Please know that I understand the stress that all of you are going through at this time. I am also stressed and very, very saddened about the way this situation has played out. Please know that even though we can’t be together in Room E-1, I am still (and will always be) here for you in any way that I can be. Throughout this time, if you need anything - assignment related or just someone to ‘talk’ to (I’ll even waive the $.05 fee ;) ) - please let me know and I’ll do whatever I can to support you, including Remind, e-mail, and occasional video conferences.
I miss you like crazy, but stay strong, we will get through this together.
