A Friendly Reminder from Your Specials Teachers
Your specials team wants to remind you that the three assessments for each specials class, including Art, Music, and PE/Wellness, are available in Schoology and they are all due by the end of the day this Friday, October 9th. These assessments will determine the students’ report card grades for this nine weeks.
All students receive a grade in “Participation”, which will be based on how many assessments they complete. Please be sure the students have submitted their work successfully. There are several steps to completing a submission in Schoology.
All students will also receive a grade in “Skills/Concepts”. This grade will be based on the effort and quality of work for the assessments. For third through fifth graders the two grades are averaged together for the report card grade.
If students do not complete any assessments, kindergarten through second grade students will receive an “X” on their report grade since there is no work submitted for the specials teachers to grade. Third through fifth grade students will receive “NG” for “No Grade” on their report card since nothing was submitted for teachers to grade.
Please let us know if you have any questions or if you are having technical difficulties accessing the Art, Music, and PE courses. Thank you.
Your Specials Team,
Art - Amie Gonser
Music - Lorinda Choate
Physical Education/Wellness - Rhina Aldrich & Kirby Hilder
