Hope that you are doing well!
We are nearing the end of our distance learning time together. I hate that this is how we closed out your senior year, but I am grateful that I had the opportunity to walk through this challenging time with you all.
Our grades for this class are due this coming up Friday, May 8. For this last week of the class I just need you to make sure that you have either sent me a picture or a copy of the study guides for Units 1, 2, 3, and 4 OR you have completed the assignments in our Khan Academy Classroom.
I need everything turned in to me by Thursday of this week (many of you have already sent me everything so you are good to go).
Again, if you have any questions from me, please feel free to email me or reach out on Remind.
Stay safe, kiddos!
4/20 Update – Hey Everybody!
Hope you guys had a restful weekend!
I have posted the new set of notes for the next 2 weeks on our Microsoft Teams page for those of you that are not doing the Khan Academy work. Make sure that you are on the “General” page of our teams page. Click on “Files” at the top of the general page, then click on the “Class Materials” folder to access Units 3 and 4 materials. You have to download the Study Guide to your phone or computer when you fill it out and then email it to me. If you don’t do it this way I will only see a blank study guide.
IF YOU HAVE TROUBLE ACCESSING THE ASSIGNMENTS ON OUR MICROSOFT TEAMS PAGE, EMAIL ME SO THAT I CAN SEND YOU THE ASSIGNMENTS DIRECTLY! Do not wait for me to contact you to make sure that you are getting your work done.
Remember, IF YOU HAVE NO INTERNET ACCESS AT ALL, you can pick up a paper and pencil packet at the school. There is a filing cabinet out front that has the assignments inside. DO NOT GO GET A PACKET IF YOU CAN DOWNLOAD IT AT HOME!
I am about to post grades in PowerSchool. I will post grades for Units 1 and 2. You will receive a 100 if you have turned in materials from Units 1 and 2. For you guys that are doing Khan Academy, you should be a 3rd of the way through for me to give you a 100 for the 1st 2 units.
I reached out to about 15 of you on Friday about getting things turned in. Most of you responded (still waiting to hear from Chad Mosby and Ben Hughes. If yall talk to these guys, let them know that I need them to contact me on Remind.) If you still haven’t turned in anything, you will have a 1 in the grade book until I receive something from you. Grades will be finalized on May 8. If you have not turned anything in by May 8, you will not pass the class and you will not graduate.
As always, if you need any help, email me or reach out on Remind. I typically get back to you within a few minutes.
