    Daily agendas are posted in Canvas.  Below are brief overviews our weekly.

        • Using your e-mail, write the following in an e-mail that you will send to me:
        • Paragraph 1:  A paragraph about how you spent your two weeks.  Where did you go, what did you do, what did you get for Christmas?  Some mentioned going to the beach, Dollywood, or hunting.  Some said they stayed home.  Some facetimed with their friends.  etc.
        • Paragraph 2:  A paragraph about the things that your friends did.  List their first and last names.  We may feature them in the book.
        • Paragraph 3:  List any friends (first and last name) who took pictures that we can get.

  • Speaking the code...

    When you look at your grades in Active Student (or Active Parent), you may notice different codes rather than a numeric grade. Below are explanations for the codes I use for your grades.  These may or may not be used by your other teachers.

    NM - This assignment either hasn't been graded or wasn't submitted. This does not average in as a 0.
     
    NG - This assignment has been graded. Unfortunately, you didn't submit this assignment. This does factor in as a 0. You can submit the work for grading. However, I will take points for it being late.
     
     1  - If there are problems with an assignment that you submit before a deadline, I enter a 1 in the gradebook and add a comment in Canvas.  Typically, these issues include students accidentally submitting the template (without answers) or a different assignment. Remember, as we discuss in class, this is your chance to resubmit the work.  If you don't resubmit the work, the 1 becomes a 0. 
     
     0  - You did not submit this assignment. It is now too late to submit the work.
     
     X or XPE  - You are exempt from this assignment.
