Attention parents and students:

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. 

Here are two ways to improve your grade:

If you have not completed the assignment, “How the 1968 Democratic Convention and the Kent State Riot Changed Police Work” please write four paragraphs on the articles in reference to this project. The paper is worth 10 points. 

Please write two paragraphs on the Garrity Case.  The paper is worth 10 points. 

 I will attach the articles for both of these assignments to the email I will send each of you on March 30, 2020.

 I miss each of you everyday and together we can work through this event.  These are difficult times but we can be successful if we all work together.

 My office hours are anytime you need to ask a question or talk.  Please make contact with me on Remind or Gmail.  I will answer you as quickly as I can.

 Let's be successful by keeping positive!!!
