Welcome back! I hope everyone had a restful break 🙂 There were a lot of tired faces today, including mine.
Marking Period 2 started November 4th and runs through January 17, 2020. ALL LATE WORK FOR MP2 WILL BE DUE ON FRIDAY, JANUARY 10th.
The FINAL DRAFT of the compare/contrast paper WAS DUE DECEMBER 18TH. At this point, the paper is more than two days late. Papers must be handed in by January 10th to receive credit for MP 2. A RUBRIC WAS HANDED OUT DETAILING EXPECTATIONS, AND CAN ALSO BE FOUND IN GOOGLE CLASSROOM.
A new reading journal was handed out today; it is due Monday, January 13th.
NWEA WILL BE GIVEN THIS WEEK (JANUARY 6-10), AND AGAIN JANUARY 21-29TH. Students will be completing both the Language and Reading NWEA tests in class.
Math and Science have scheduled their NWEA for different weeks 🙂
There is NO SCHOOL on MONDAY, JANUARY 20TH (MLK DAY).
There are HALF DAYS on FRIDAY, JANUARY 17TH, TUESDAY, JANUARY 21 AND WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 22.
Library time is scheduled every week (mostly on Friday). I am happy to send students to the library before Friday if it is needed. Students may check out 3 library books at one time. Students must have a barcode on their planner to check out a book until we have student ID’s.
Students who are one or more minutes late to class will be marked Tardy. At 3 tardies, I will contact home via email, and copy the front office on the email. At 4 tardies, students will be referred to the office AND serve a lunch detention. An updated copy of our tardy policy is on my blog!
