Keep checking your student email!
So much is new as we continue in our virtual learning environment! One important thing is for students to remember to check their student email account daily! Teachers and support personnel use email to communicate with students and it is a great tool for them to use to reach out with questions.
How do I access my student email?
All students have a Methacton email account (@student.methacton.org) which is setup as a Gmail and only emails within the Methacton domain can be sent and received.
The easiest way for students to access this is through the MyMSD Student Launchpad entering their Methacton Username and Password and selecting the Gmail icon (see below)

Honors at Arcola (information originally posted 4/27/2020)
Due to our abbreviated time in the buildings this year (2019-2020 school year), we have made a few adjustments to the Honors rubrics. With a few exceptions, the majority of assessments used to determine placement into 7th & 8th grade Honors courses had already been given and graded by March 11. In some instances, only two of the planned three assessments were administered. These are noted within the rubric. In these cases, it was not necessary to make any adjustments to overall points. The CDTs for science from grade 7 to 8 were not yet given, and as a result, were removed from this rubric. The overall number of points was adjusted to reflect this change. The other main adjustment is seen in 6th graders moving into 7th grade Honors math, as we did not have an opportunity to provide a second round of testing. This resulted in an adjustment to the points needed for placement into Honors Algebra or Honors Pre-Algebra. These updated points are reflected in the rubric.
