What a little birdie told us

Week of April 11, 2016

Spring is here and you are getting the itch to want to be outside or to just lay back and relax. Look at where you are in your courses and is it a place you want to be? With 34 days left in school (yes only 34 days) you need to push through this urge of wanting to slack off. Have the strength to overcome the things you thought were impossible. You can prove to yourself that it is possible. By completing all your assignments will help you achieve this goal!!!

Get F.I.T. and Ready for the EOY’s!

F.I.T. stands for Focused Instructional Time and we have reserved this time during second semester starting on January 18th to help prepare you for your End of Year Course Exams! Remember, the EOY exams are how you earn points towards Graduation. (For more information about graduation requirements, click HERE and HERE.)

Teachers will be using this time to review missing concepts from class time, go over practice problems, and help students become familiar with the online tools needed to take these tests. Recordings will be made available for students who cannot attend.

Keep in mind that these sessions cannot replace daily work in your LMS classes and attendance at ClassConnect sessions for success on these tests. This is merely meant to supplement and reinforce. They are optional, but recommended.
