Please remember that plans do change, so, any announcement in class takes precedent over these notes.
Parents, as you check your student’s grades you might notice an assignment as missing if the there is an * beside it that means that the assignment has either not been graded yet or I have not yet posted it. If there a "0" beside it the assignment has been graded and the student did not turn in the assignment either in class or through the Homework Completion Program and the grade will stand as such. I hope this clears up any questions or misunderstandings.
Parents, due to circumstances beyond our control we will be unable to issue your student a History text book this year. We will be using classroom sets instead. In the event that your student needs a History book overnight they are encouraged to check one out from the instructor and return it the next day. This has all been reviewed in class and will continue to be reinforced. Thank you for your support in this matter.
