This Week in Geometry

April 4 - April 8

Supply Request

I am completely out of tissues in my classroom. If you could spare a box to donate to us, it would be greatly appreciated. Allergies have been bad this year and we will need tissues to help ensure we do not all get sick. If you can donate, please send them to school starting Tuesday of this week.


Thank you in advance!

Sub on Monday

I will be out of the building on Monday of this week and students will have a sub. The plan for the day for Geometry is for them to complete a page in their notebooks. They will be given a foldable and a copy of what the page looks like.


After they have completed that page of notes, there will be an online practice assignment. Students need to make sure they have a device - computer, tablet, or phone - so that they can complete that assignment. I will try to leave the assignment open for the duration of the day for them to complete it.


We will practice the concept they complete notes over when I return on Tuesday, so no real worries if they are a little confused with the notes!!


Students were told on Friday that I would be out and know the plan as well, so, hopefully, everything should go smoothly.

Tutoring

As always, I am available for tutoring after school if your student needs to attend. My normal days are Tuesday and Thursday. This week I will be available on Tuesday for a short time and on Thursday and Friday. We are down to having two weeks left of this marking period, so students should be looking at grades and attending tutoring if needed.

Grades

I am in the process of updating grades. So you are aware, I tend to grade assignments that were on time first, then I grade late work. I am working on grading now and hope to have all grades entered no later than Monday afternoon. A few reminders:


1. If you see a (*), this assignment is NOT missing. A (*) indicates that no grade has been entered, so it is likely your student was absent or that I have not entered the grade yet.

2. If you see a (0), then this assignment is missing (or late) and your student needs to make sure that it is completed as soon as possible.

Please Read - Laptops

We will be starting to use laptops more frequently in class. The goal is to work towards using the every single day. Students need to make sure they are bringing their laptops with them and they need to be fully charged and they should also be bringing their chargers with them. In a situation where a laptop is out for repairs, they can use their phone, but laptops are needed when at all possible.

Copies of Assignments

If a student is missing an assignment for any reason, there are several ways they can get a copy of it:


1. I post copies of all daily work and notes pages on blackboard. Students should be able to access them anywhere they have Internet connection. Also on blackboard is a calendar where I post daily entries with detailed descriptions of what was done in class that day. I also post pictures of my notebook on blackboard so that students can see any notes they have missed.

2. I attach copies of anything that is a daily grade in skyward as well. Students (and parents) can access these files.

3. Students can ask me for any work they missed as well, but this method is not the quickest way to get work, as it usually has to wait until there is a chance during class for me to pull that work.


Students are responsible for keeping up with their notebooks and making sure they get any missed notes if they are absent. They are also responsible for getting their missing work.


Tests will NOT be posted online, so if a students misses or needs to retake/correct a test or quiz, they will need to come to tutorials.
