posted Oct 30, 2017, 5:21 AM by Bradford Bosler

Grades are done for the first Marking Period.
Please see Schoology.  I even added a little personal comment for each student!
The transition to Schoology is complete!
All due dates are on the class Schoology page.
I also have the weekly assignments ready on Mondays. 
       Students should do the assignments and submit.

The Schoology grade is my official grade.
       There are some transfer issues getting grades in HAC from Schoology.

Making this page and the Schoology page will take too long.
         I think there is a way parents can access Schoology.
