The grade for test 4 will be earned through participation and quiz grades as we prepare for the EOC test. Points will be accumulated from Monday, April 13 - Tuesday, April 21.
I HAVE BEEN HAVING ISSUES WITH THE HOST OF MY WEBSITE. FOR SOME REASON I AM LOSING INFORMATION THAT I AM POSTING AFTER PUBLISHING. ANOTHER TEACHER IS HAVING THE SAME PROBLEMS, SO I KNOW ITS THE HOST SITE. PLEASE BE PATIENT AS I TRY TO FIND A WAY TO CORRECT THE ISSUE.
Students who earn an F on a test will have an opportunity to bring up their grade one letter if they have participated fully in class and completed all homework assignments.
Read my "second chance policy" here.
