WEEK 12, November 14-20
CON LA SRA. AGUIRRE
This coming week I will be communicating with all parents about student progress in our class. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any concerns or questions about your student.
Below is a list of this week's assignments (due Friday, November 18 @ 11:55pm)
Questions about being a future Peer Tutor!
A: 5-10 hours a week. Tutors set their own hours, we only ask that you are available during the times you post.
Q: May I tutor for a subject I took at my brick and mortar school?
A: Yes, you can tutor for any course for which you have strong content knowledge and expertise. You will still need to have a recommendation from either an NCVPS instructor or your eLA.
Q: Do I have to participate in all of the Peer Tutoring Center services?
A: No. If you only want to be a Peer Tutor, Virtual Buddy, Writing Center, ELL Center or write for TutorTalk, we are happy to welcome you in any capacity.
Q: What's in it for me?
A: Besides the great feeling you get when you help others, the PTC will verify volunteer hours towards community service projects, graduation or honor society requirements. You will also receive a certificate signed by NC State Superintendent. Your hours will accumulate toward earning a Presidential Volunteer Service Award. This spring and fall we were able to recognize a total of 12 outstanding leaders through Ronald Reagan Student Leader Program. Eight of these students received or will receive a commemorative Ronald Reagan coin in recognition of the honor. The PTC also recognizes a Peer Tutor of the Month and provides numerous leadership opportunities. Finally, it looks great on a résumé or college application!
If your student is interested in being a Peer Tutor for NCVPS, please tell him/her to contact me!
Students need to follow the directions below to attend one or more of these sessions:
There is still time to sign up for Canvas as an observer in our class!
Have you seen your student's grades? You can easily do that by being a CANVAS observer in our class!
Parents and facilitators will need student login information to set up their parent accounts. This will have to come from the school. NCVPS cannot supply login credentials to parents or facilitators. Check with your school's e-learning advisor (ELA).
The Canvas Parent app is designed to provide visibility into a student's progress at a glance. Canvas Parent allows both parents and facilitators to:
- View assignment descriptions and due dates
- Set reminders for assignments
- View assignment grades
- View course grades
- Set grade alerts
- View course announcements
Here are several helpful links:
Parents and facilitators can also use the Parent Portal online. Directions on how to use the portal are here.
