18, 16, and 14 Week Grade Update

Check Your Grades: Grades Have Been Updated!

At each Assignment Due date, grades are updated by the teacher. Zeros are entered for any missing assignments from the student's schedule. Students and parents should view grades and notify the teacher of any issues. Students are encouraged to turn in missing work for partial credit according to GaVS late policy (see below.)


You will receive a course update email from me every two weeks, immediately after an Assignment Due Date. This week, the 18, 16, and 14 week schedules had a due date. The 12 week schedule begins on Monday, so the first 12 week due date will be September 26th,

Please read through the newsletter for helpful information.

The Dish on Discussions

If you are only making one discussion post, you are missing out on some points. Remember, in order to earn points without deductions, students must make one initial post (start a new thread) and then reply to at least two other posts. * If you are the first one to post in a discussion board, or you post way ahead of schedule, it is YOUR responsibility to revisit the board and add more replies. Check out the images below that I created for your gradebook.
