Grades are Updated!

This email is also a reminder that grades have been updated. Please take a moment to log in and check the progress of your student. As a reminder, there are a lot of assignments for the students in this class, so a low grade or two can easily be brought up with diligent work throughout the rest of the semester. If you have any questions on any particular assignment, please do not hesitate to contact me.

If you have any missing assignments, please make sure to work on completing them in a timely manner. The projects and tests affect your grade the most, so please work on these items before the assignments and discussion grades. Please take some time to submit those things before Friday, September 20th for partial credit according to the GAVS late work policy (as pictured below). The sooner those things get done, the less deduction of points. :)

GaVS Policy - Upcoming Fall Breaks

  • Students should stay on the GaVS schedule that they choose upon entering their course. Even if the local school breaks do not coincide with the GaVS break, students must meet the assignment due dates posted within GAVS.
  • Students should communicate their school breaks with their teacher as soon as possible and if necessary discuss with their instructor how to get ahead.


Do you want to replace a poor grade? Well, keep an EYE out! Before Halloween, you will have the opportunity to complete an ALTERNATIVE ASSIGNMENT which will replace a low grade!

We Meet Online Every Tuesday!

Don't forget that EVERY Tuesday evening from 4:00 PM until 5:00 PM I will hold office hours for all of my classes to go over any assignments you might have questions on, to discuss upcoming assignments where you might need help, and to go over some of the topics currently being studied. You and your parents can join these sessions!
