Don't be camera shy!
While we will not mandate that all students turn on their videos, we would like your support in encouraging your student to turn on their videos during class.
Teachers cannot get feedback on how your students are doing, whether they understand the materials, or if they are connecting with the information. They can use the virtual background feature on their Zoom account as long as the background is appropriate.

At the meeting, students will be a give a pre assessment, information on how to have their test ordered, and information about the Saturday sessions Mr. Luis will be holding to prep students for the test.
