The kids are better and now it’s been me who’s been sick, sorry! I will get grades updated this week. Please use Infinite Campus to check for missing assignments. Third quarter will close March 6, 2020, before Spring Break.

Thank you for reinforcing our cell phone policy which asks students to keep their phones in our pockets during class, unless asked by the teacher to use it for an educational purpose. We have struggled with compliance with this during the year. We are tightening up our expectations and we are also encouraging phones not to be out during passing periods.

– Daily Language practice 21 – due Friday
– word work (due on various days, sorts are indicated on Infinite Campus)

I available for study hall/make-up work in my classroom on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings (8:05-8:30).  Send your student to me instead of the gym if there’s missing work to be completed or if help is needed on classwork 🙂  If your student would like to come in another day/time, please let me know and I would be happy to make myself available.
