Dear Parents and Students,
Please know that I have entered zeros for missing work that was originally due on Thursday, September 24th. Please check for the yellow image below under GRADES tab for missing work.

All work submitted by the deadline will be graded no later than Tuesday, September 29th. Please allow up to 3 school days for me to grade. Please log on and check progress. If you see something I may have missed, please contact me. If you have questions, please contact me.

The last day to submit late work from September 11th- September 24th is Tuesday, September 29th. Late assignments receive 10% off deductions per day late.

Have a wonderful day,
Mrs. B

Latin Class Discussion Boards

Our online class provides students the opportunity to build a learning community through the discussion board. Each module contains a discussion prompt. Students must post their responses and reply to their peers. It's a great way for students to extend their learning about the ancient world through interacting with peers. Please check out two outstanding posts from our class below.

GaVS allows 3 days for instructors to grade work Monday - Friday. Work submitted on Friday will be graded no later than the following Wednesday. Students should check their Grades tab often for feedback from the instructor.

Work is due every other Thursday evening at midnight (orange calendar days). After midnight work is considered late and a zero will be entered for missing assignments. Students may submit late work Friday-Sunday at 10% off, Monday at 20% and Tuesday at 30% off following the due date. After Tuesday, late work will no longer be accepted.
