Freshman!! Class of 2025
Hey Freshman---Did you know that Grades are FINAL in December???
How can you improve your Grades?
1. Come to school and BE ON TIME!
2. Engage in learning during class (pay attention!)
3. Complete work. If your teacher accepts late work, turn it in late for points off...that is better than a zero!
4. GO TO POWER SURGE ON SATURDAYS! (See above!)
5. Does your teacher do test corrections or opportunities to re-take the exam...If so, these are wonderful gifts that your teacher is throwing at you to improve! JUST DO IT!
6. Have a one-on-one conversation with your teacher. If you are too shy to approach him/her/they, send them an email.
7. Study!!!! ESPECIALLY if you have an EOC! EOC's are worth 20% of your grade.
Ok, real talk...what happens if you fail the course?
-If you get between a 60-69 you can participate in Course Extension in January to earn a 70 (passing credit). This prevents you from having to retake the whole course again. Your teacher will sign you up for it. You must attend & do the work!
-If you are lucky, you may be able to re-take the course 2nd semester but this is not always a guarantee as our classes are VERY full.
-After school grad point on Tues and Thursday either F2F or virtually. $40 per 1.0 credit. See your counselor for more info.
-Retake class next year; risk not being promoted.
TO BE PROMOTED TO THE 10TH GRADE YOU MUST....
-Earn a total of 5 credits.
-Out of that 5 credits, one must be an English Literature credit, one a Math credit and one a Science credit.
YOU CAN DO THIS!!!!!
