Hey everyone! I hope everyone had a relaxing Spring Break. I know I enjoyed my down time. I have been in contact with a lot of you via Microsoft TEAMS as well as through email/text. I just want to provide some clarification for some of the questions that were asked as well as general information.
Assignments - Your final assignment for my class is your Poetry Anthology. I have broken the project into weekly tasks. Only one part is due each week. I adjusted the original due dates so please follow the due dates below. In addition, you should complete one Reading Plus assignment each week. I should see 100% participation on Reading Plus (no excuses!).
Task 5 Part One - Sunday April 19th
Task 5 Part Two - Sunday April 26th
Task 5 Part Three - Sunday May 3rd
Task 5 Part Four - Sunday May 10th
Task 5 Part Five - Sunday May 17th
Remember these due dates are guidelines and not strictly set in stone. If you need additional time, please reach out to me prior to the "due date" so I can grant you more time.
The last week and half of school will be dedicated to catching up on any missed assignments or revising of assignments.
Grades - Information about Q4 grades was sent out by the Superintendent. If you have specific questions in regards to Q3 OR Q4 grades, please email Mr, Langston or Dr. Hill. Any emails sent to me regarding grades will automatically be forwarded to them. This is to ensure that information regarding grades is accurately given to parents/students.
Weekly Wellness Check-In
Please make sure that you are completing the weekly wellness check-in form on TEAMS. I did not post one this week. This helps me to see how each of you are doing. Plus I enjoy reading them.
Weekly Video Conferences Moved to Thursday
I am moving our weekly video conferences to Thursday per the schedule that was sent out. I am also combining class periods together. I will also have an additional video conference time for any student that missed the scheduled times. To access the video conference, you must go to the TEAMS link I send out through the chat box. See below for the changes.
Video Conferences are OPTIONAL for any class, but highly recommended. My video conferences are to ask any questions you have about assignments/school as well as to check up on all of you to see how you are doing.
Thursday Video Conference Schedule
9:00AM 3rd period, 4th period, & 5th period
10:30AM 6th & 7th period
One Note ISSUES
Several of you have reached out to me this week informing me that your work is not being saved in your One Note Notebook and getting an error code. I have submitted a work order to our IT department to see if we can resolve the issue. If this is happening to you, please let me know and try not to stress. In the mean time, for those having the issues, please complete work in a Word Document to prevent any saving issues. I know how upsetting/infuriating it can be to have technology issues. I will provide an update once I hear from the IT department.
End of the Year Virtual Class Party
Typically as the school year comes to an end, we have many events to look forward to such as field day and class parties. I have been thinking about how we can still make this happen. So I came up with having a virtual class party with trivia/online games. I will put out a poll on TEAMS to see if anyone is interested. I think it would be fun and great to see all of you before our official summer break!
Stay Happy & Healthy,
