Check your grades asap. I had to put many "zeros" this week in grade book for those students who have not turned in some work.

I will be sending your Progress grades to school on Tuesday. I am filling out report with your grades that is sent to schools every two weeks. However, I do not have access to your PowerSchool. I do not enter grades in your PowerSchool. That would be a person in your school. From many of your messages I understand that your PowerSchool is not updated. There is nothing I can do about that.

Make sure you know what your grade is. Let me know if you can not locate it.

I am very proud of the work you are doing during conversation sessions. Kudos to Renn works on vocabulary before conversation sessions to get ahead start. Renn was able to figure out the the riddle about days of the week faster then native speakers!
