The 3rd Quarter ended on March 13. Students have the opportunity to improve their grade if they wish by following the instructions provided below 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.
As an optional test grade in the third quarter, students will receive a 100 test grade for completing 4/4 Common Lit assignments assigned over the past 2 weeks or an 89% test grade for completing 3/4 completed Common Lit assignments. Hopefully, you all have stayed on top of these AOWs and this is an easy way to boot your test average. Please continue to fill out your reading logs and wash your hands! I miss you all!

During the two-week mandated closure, students can access instructional materials for my class on Google Classroom. Students have articles to read/annotate on Common Lit, which will serve as our AOWs for the next 2 weeks. In addition, I posted a digital reading log and Figurative Fridays for students to work on. There are also additional optional activities posted on google classroom. I will be available to support you with questions via email during my office hours M-F 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if needed. Stay safe, read a book (or 5), and wash your hands!
If you are looking for additional resources beyond what the schools are posting at this time, please check out Scholastic Learn at Home which has kindly opened its online courses for free in order to support parents, educators, and kids. This is available across all devices including smartphones. Poquoson uses many scholastic resources across the district, so this is a great option for anyone feeling overwhelmed sustaining academic activities at home. They offer resources across many subjects and grade levels so that children can keep an academic mindset in the middle of this closure.
