Please read below...

Hello students & parents,
I have updated the 18, 16, 14, & 12 week gradebook to reflect assignments that have NOT been turned in by the September 10th due date. Items that have been submitted are still being graded. Don't worry, if you submitted a dropbox, posted a discussion, or took a quiz, then I will get those graded. Items that HAVE been submitted did not receive a 0. Only items that were due on October 8th and were NOT submitted received a 0.

Students have three school days to submit late work for a reduced grade. Please see the late work policy image below. We have had a great two weeks. Keep up the good work and contact me with any questions.

~ Mrs. Gardner

How to Know What Assignments Are Due When

This newsletter explains where you can find assignments listed on the schedule, how to check and see what has been submitted, and how to see what you are missing.

Did You Miss My Call?

I sent out phone calls to students/parents whose grades are below passing. If you got a voicemail from my phone number, be sure to listen. I want you to be able to get your work submitted before the late work window closes.
