Course Update Information

This is a reminder that grades have been updated in Physical Science B. At your earliest convenience, please log in to the course and review the student's progress at Please contact me if you have questions.

If you have seen a drop in the grade or the grade is below a 75, the low grade is more than likely a result of assignments not being completed. If you see a zero in the gradebook this indicates an assignment that needs to be completed as soon as possible so that the late penalty will not effect the grade too negatively. Another reason for low grades could be due to poor quiz and test grades. Encourage your student to attend or listen to the synchronous chat sessions each week. We review important concepts, answer multiple choice questions, and preview specific questions on assignments.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know. Thank you for supporting your student in this course.

Only 7 Weeks Left!

The semester is going by fast! The course ends on May 10th which means we only have 7 weeks remaining. It is very important for the student to remain focused and disciplined in ensuring work gets accomplished until the very end. If the current grade in the course is lower than what the student is aiming to have in the course, please encourage the student to take advantage of all extra learning opportunities. In addition, they should attend or listen to the recording for all of the scheduled chat sessions. In preparing for the End of Course Test (EOCT), the student should be taking practice tests on In addition, starting the week of April 22 I will be holding chat sessions to review specifically for the EOCT. I want every student to be successful both in the course and on the EOCT. Please ask if there are any questions.
