Zeros for Week 4/Unit 4 have been assigned. There will be another progress report on Tuesday, July 15. Students are encouraged to submit as much work as possible before this report is due!
We covered a LOT of information in our sessions last week, and this week will be no different! Now that we have moved beyond the basics, students are able to express more complex ideas. It's important that students continue to attend live sessions to improve their skills! The schedule for this week's live sessions is as follows:

* Sunday - 7/13 @ 8pm with Mme Lovelady-Alfonso
* Tuesday - 7/15 @ 7pm with Mme McDaniel
* Wednesday - 7/16 @ 8:30pm with Mme Padgett
* Thursday - 7/17 @ 10am with Mme Miller
* Sunday - 7/20 @ 8pm with Mme Lovelady-Alfonso (Unit 6)

To get the most out of our live classroom sessions, students should reflect on them each week. What did they learn as a result of the session? What questions do they still have? What topics would they like to review further, or in greater detail? After reflecting, students should communicate their strengths and weaknesses to the instructor to help us tailor instruction to students' needs.
Navigating the digital world can be a challenge, but technology doesn't have to be a problem! If students experience technical difficulties they should contact their instructor for help. If after troubleshooting with the instructor the problem persists, the NCVPS Virtual Help Desk is the next step.
