Semester is coming to an end

Hi Parents,


The semester is coming to a close. Our last biweekly grading periods ends this Friday Nov. 22, 2013. All the assignments from Nov. 11 through Nov. 22 are will be due on Friday--Nov. 22. Below is a snapshot of the rest of the semester's calendar.


I have live office hours this Thursday Nov. 21 from 6PM-7PM. We will be discussing any assignments or topics that are left in the semester. Also, I will be answering any questions about "replacing a bad grade" opportunity. Here is the link to access the live office hours session: http://gavirtualschool.adobeconnect.com/spencerev/

Remediation Opportunity: "Replace a Bad Grade"

Want to replace some bad grades?

If a student did not do well on a previous assignment or quiz, I will let them replace up to 4 dropbox assignments, 2 module daily work quizzes, and up to two unit module major tests. However, I will pick the quizzes and tests as I will look at their individual needs based on the concepts you missed the most. Before emailing me, please review the grades in the gradebook and come up with a list of assignments to be replaced. Replace does not mean I will drop the grade. Please email me at jeremy.spencer@gavirutalschool.org the names of the assignments and possible quizzes/tests, the student would like to replace. Once you email me, I will review your request and contact you via GAVS email and we will have a phone conference or Adobe Connect conference about your performance. Since the last day to turn in this opportunity is Dec. 2, it might be a good idea to work on these over the holiday break.

The last day to turn in is DEC. 2 by 11:59 PM.

Special Office Hours Dec. 3rd & 4th

I will be hosting special office hours on Dec. 3rd and 4th. These times are to address any questions left that students might have as well as to review content for the final exam. The final exam is worth 20% of the student's grade. Time will be from 7:30 PM to 8:30 PM for both days.


Thank you

Available daily from 4:30pm-9pm Mon. through Fri.
