Hello Parents!

I hope you all are doing well. I'm just sending you a courtesy email to let you know the end of the nine weeks is December 22nd. If your child has any make-up work to complete, I need this work completed and submitted by December 17th to allow time for me to grade. Your child knows how to access their grades on powerschool for Quarter 2 (Q2) as well as show you their google classroom "classwork" tab.

While helping your child make sure all work has been submitted, you'll need to look for any zeros on powerschool, and work labeled as "missing" on google classroom. Please be aware that sometimes children will click "mark as done" on their google classroom assignments to make it appear that the work has been completed, it has not. Please look to see if they actually attached their work (especially if it says "turned in" versus "graded.") There may be some assignments that I have asked them to click "mark as done" (such as IXL), but you would see that in the instructions for the assignment.

Any work prior to November 22nd will no longer be accepted for full credit, but partial credit will be given if the assignment has been turned in.

Thank you for your time and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Have a great day!

This information was emailed to all parents. If you did not receive an email, but would like to begin receiving emails, please email me at Please include your child's first and last name.

Thank you!
