Reading Grades for Quarter 2

Due to 5 days left of the quarter, we are asking teachers to give your averages for the students you have to your teammate who has access to those students for reading. You can put in one assignment as quarter grade and input the grade. Please share the comment numbers you wish the students to receive for the report card also.

We will look into how to move the entire class to the correct teacher once third quarter starts.
