TEST TODAY: Friday, 12/8, Chapter 8 & 9 Exam

Your Chapters 8&9 Exam will be on Friday, 12/8.  The Quizlet Review has been open since November 8th.  If you have been in class, paid attention, done your homework, and study you should do very well on the test.  STUDY THE REVIEW IN QUIZLET - it was made using the material on your exam.  Remember to review Ch 1-7 as well, since it will also be on your exam.

Make up dates are Dec. 11 & 12, 6:50 - 7:15 am.  It is a full period exam, make up session ends at 7:30 am so be as early as possible for maximum time.  Failure to make-up the exam will result in a zero for that test.  Cuts & illegal absences cannot be made up, and anyone late to class will not receive extra time on the exam.

Grades Finalized

I was at school until 8 pm Friday making sure every last stitch of work in my classroom was graded.  When I left, there was nothing left ungraded, everything as entered into Thinkwave, upcoming work for the new marking period was listed in Thinkwave, and 1st Quarter averages were finalized.  If you believe there is an error, please email me (I will not entertain conversations about an assignment as I will not remember to check for you - any requests to review a grade MUST be in writing via email by 3 pm on Monday, 11/6. 

You will receive a print out of the 1st MP on Wednesday in class, you are responsible to have it signed by your Parent/Guardian.  It is due at the beginning f your class on Monday, 11/13 (but you are welcome to turn it in early on 11/9.)  It is a test grade.  100 = done on time as directed.  0 = directions not followed. 

If you are legally absent on 11/8 & 11/9, you will need to print the 1st Quarter grades on your wn & have a parent sign them to turn n by the due date.
