For Your Parents!!

Good Afternoon Parents ~

On Monday, your student will receive a print out of his/her current grades & average as listed in & computed by Engrade.  You have full access to this information via Engrade & the code given to your student in September.  This average & information was used to complete the school progress reports. 

No matter the average, all students are required to have this sheet signed and returned on Tuesday, 3/4.  This will count as a test grade &, as such, will help your student's average.  Students will lose 25 points per day late. 

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
~ D. Ramo

Students ~
It is your responsibility to be in school, in class, on time, & prepared every day.  Failure to do this will not e grounds for an extension on the above assignment.  If you are late to class Tuesday, your work will also be considered late.
~ Mrs. Ramo

US History: Were you absent this week?

Chapter 17 HW averages have been calculated & are now in Engrade.  If you were absent yesterday, you have until Monday to turn in the Muller v. Oregon handout that was due today, given out yesterday.  If you were absent today, you have until Monday to turn in the work due today.

Please note that progress reports are being filled out & printed using the current Engrade average.

If you failed to pick up the Muller handout today email me before 9 PM tonight - IF I have it saved to a disc I will send it to you.  If I don' should have picked it up today.  Please note the very firm deadline.

Global II: Chapter 32 Section 5 Notes

A few things before you copy these notes:
     1.  Yes, you must make the chart the way I have it here.  It will be part of your OBQ if you don't do it, you did not do the assignment as given, and you will get no credit on the OBQ..  FAIR WARNING!
    2.  The very first sentence in the 3rd row of PAGE 2 is a continuation of the last row on page 1.  That's why the solid, dark line is drawn you see the difference in where the row really ends.
