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.
