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.

Plan up to Thanksgiving

from:Nelson, Ms.

to:Science 6, B

Hi all, 

Apologies for the tardy posts - a reminder that our plan is always posted on the science website even if I am late to get up here on Thinkwave. I hope you have had a chance to hear about the students constructing their own Galileoscope.  They did such a great job with these, and we took them outside today to test them all out. We have a quiz on Tuesday on section 1.2: Telescopes.  We will continue to work with our Galileoscopes and view our ongoing movie on the Ancient Maya and their astronomy breakthroughs. 

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
