CLASS NEWS

Salvete, Omnes!


If you have been on Spring Break, welcome back to school! You've had a beautiful week for your break. The dogwoods and azaleas are blooming in my neighborhood. How about yours?


If you haven't been working on your course, please aim to catch up this week! AP exams, IB exams, and Prom are all on the horizon, and then it's the end of the year! It will be here before you know it. Let's finish our Latin 2 course well!


Today, we should be finishing Unit 10. It is hard to believe that there are only four more units to go!!! There are still some students that have not finished work from 3rd quarter. Please complete those assignments as soon as possible. Even though I can't change your grade on your report card, those missing assignments from last semester can still affect the overall grade in a positive way once they are completed. Also, be sure that you are keeping up with assignments for this quarter. One of the best ways avoid stress is to make sure that you are not trying to do a quarter's worth of work at the very end of the class. If we all work together, I know that you will succeed in Latin II!


Progress Reports will go into the system this Tuesday, April 5th and schools will receive them on Thursday. They will include Units 9 and 10. Please be aware of this report and check your student's grades (parents can see grades by viewing "My Grades" under their student's log in. As always, please contact me, if you have any questions.



Grading:

1st Quarter= 37.5%

2nd Quarter= 37.5%

Final= 25%

You can be a Peer Tutor!

The Peer Tutoring Center is recruiting tutors, virtual buddies, and writers! This is a great way to beef up your college resume and get in those volunteer hours that you may need. Here are a few of the questions students frequently ask about volunteering with the PTC.


Q: What is the time commitment?
A: 5-10 hours a week. Tutors set their own hours, we only ask that you are available during the times you post.

Q: May I tutor for a subject I took at my brick and mortar school?
A: Yes, you can tutor for any course for which you have strong content knowledge and expertise. You will still need to have a recommendation from either an NCVPS instructor or your eLA.

Q: Do I have to participate in all of the Peer Tutoring Center services?
A: No. If you only want to be a Peer Tutor, Virtual Buddy, Writing Center, ELL Center or write for TutorTalk, we are happy to welcome you in any capacity.

Q: What's in it for me?
A: Besides the great feeling you get when you help others, the PTC will verify volunteer hours towards community service projects, graduation or honor society requirements. You will also receive a certificate signed by NC State Superintendent, June Atkinson. Your hours will accumulate toward earning a Presidential Volunteer Service Award. This spring and fall we were able to recognize a total of 12 outstanding leaders through Ronald Reagan Student Leader Program. Eight of these students received or will receive a commemorative Ronald Reagan coin in recognition of the honor. The PTC also recognizes a Peer Tutor of the Month and provides numerous leadership opportunities. Finally, it looks great on a résumé or college application!
