Ms. Crace's Course Updates

Welcome Back From the Long Weekend!

Remember that this newsletter contains information for all of Ms. Crace's classes, so pay attention for information helpful for your class.

Grades for ELA8 & AP Lang Are Current

I have updated grades for 18- and 16-week students for everything due as of Friday, August 30, for AP Lang and ELA8. All assignments have been graded and zeros have been entered for work that was not submitted. Don't forget that work can be submitted up to 5 school days late with a 10% reduction for each school day late, and because of the Labor Day holiday, the grades on all work submitted by midnight on Tuesday, Sept. 3 are only reduced by 10%.

Check your grade (in the course grades area) to make sure it is accurate. Submit any late work before the Friday, Sept. 6 deadline.
