Ms. Patton

I-Ready- Please take your i-Ready tests!

If you have not done so already, please take your i-Ready tests in both Math and ELA. This is a requirement for all students. The website is: https://login.i-ready.com/
Your username is your student ID. I attached directions on where to find your student ID number to the newsletter kmail. Your password is: student. Please kmail me as you finish the tests.

Report Cards

Report Cards will be mailed home next week. Grades were recorded as of Friday afternoon. As previously stated the check point (CFA) participation grades were included into the final grade. Although they were only figured in at 10%, not doing them could have effected the letter grade. The same can be said for doing them. The extra points can make the difference between two grades.

Semester Tests

If you have not done so already, please kmail me your graded offline semester tests. Remember, while all semester tests need to be done, only the offline tests that the LC grades need to be sent to me. Not sure where the semester tests are for each subject? See below:
Math: Unit 7 Lesson 3 and Lesson 4
Literature: Unit 12 Lesson 5
GUM: Unit 6 Lesson 13 and Lesson 14
Science: Unit 5 Lesson 11
History: Unit 6 Lesson 14

Changes in Lit Synch

As we begin the second semester, there will be a change in our ELA live sync classes. We will shift the focus from the Literature course to the GUM and Composition courses. Check out the calendar attached below to see where you should be in each course by January 20th when semester two begins. The class will focus on Comp on Monday/Wednesday and GUM on Tuesday/Thursday.

Here is your January Synch Calendar. Make sure you are doing the lessons assigned on Fridays as well.
