Weekly Information Page

Welcome back to the last semester of your high school career.

I am making work available in a different manner than last semester.  All classwork and homework, and most projects, are available on the student portal.  You can download them, do them, and drop them in the dropbox all right in one place.  If Mr. Wilkinson has not met with your class, then he will be meeting with them at the first of the week to make sure you can access the portal.  I will continue to do weekly updates here and put powerpoints and readings on moodle, but this should make it easier for you when you are absent.  If the assignment will not upload, then you are probably past the deadline for the assignment.  The dropbox is only live for two weeks.

Next week, we will have a quiz on the bureaucracy and we will have a project day.  Firm deadlines will be announced when return to school and weather systems are a little more clear.  I will also post a date for quiz corrections once I know the B day students have taken it.  Thanks for your flexibility at this time of the year.            
Changes this nine weeks:  Corrections are still available, but you receive a smaller percentage of points back.  Late work is accepted, but only for a week after the assignment for an unexcused absence (with a 50% point reduction.)  If the absence is excused, the work is due one week after assigned without a reduction in points and for a second week with a 50% reduction.  Please keep up and turn things in on time!

If you need help, I am always available Monday and Tuesday after school and Thursday before school.  If you need help another time, please see me to set something up.
