Grades posted for Self-Portrait Visual Art assignment

from:Jenny, Ms.

to:Visual Art 8, B

For those whose files I could find on the server, I have given break-down grades and a project grade for the Self-Portait. You can find these under the Assignments tab.
If you do not see a grade in the Self-Portrait assignment, it means there was no file titled "FINAL_yourname" in your Pictures server folder. Please email me your Self-Portrait ASAP to bjenny@heronfield.org.

Qtr 2 mid-term grades

from:Jenny, Ms.

to:Visual Art 8, B

Because my new grading system is resulting in lower overall grades (which was the intention; my previous system had many inflated grades), I will be rounding up all grades for Qtr 2 mid-term grades. I expect students will adjust to the new points system, however, and final term grades will reflect total points.
