French Course Update & News

le 28 mars - Spring 2016 - Sénégal

Parents, sit down with your child to check his or her French course grades.

Parents, please have your child open his or her gradebook for you at home. I find this is the best way for parents to evaluate their child's progress and learning.

Hopefully you have already checked your gradebook and didn't see the image below!

Grade Improvement Opportunities Are Here!

Check your French course classroom bulletin. I am offering grade improvement opportunities that can definitely improve your overall French grade if you complete them. Be sure to check news items daily and classroom bulletin board.

Just a reminder that grade improvement opportunities will NOT be accepted outside the time window specified in the grade improvement instructions.

I will offer grade improvement opportunities for each module, but you have to complete them as they are offered because they will not be offered again at the end of the semester.
