• The week of April 6th is for finishing quarter one grades and preparing for "distance learning."  So if you have anything from quarter one that is inaccurate or that you need addressed that is the week to take care of it. The district has asked us to do that through google classroom, so I will start updating there and move away from having things here for you. 

    Seniors are moving to PASS / FAIL for the semester based upon quarter three grades.  If you are not passing (56% and above) you need to be sending me an email so I can work on an individual plan for getting you to a passing level.  Please be patient as this is individual work that I am going to be workin on in addition to getting everything ready for my other students to start "distance learning" next week.  We will have time to get you passing, but you need to reach out so I know you are wanting to start that process.

    NON SENIORS need to join our class with the google classroom code for economics being: hhozop3.  World 9: zxulo6h  Hope you are all well, washing your hands, eating healthy food, getting adequate exercise and extra sleep, reading, limiting how much time you spend on devices. . . . . miss you.
