ALL 11th GRADERS, no matter what course you are in...


I received an email today that states every single 11th grader MUST update/sign up for Naviance.  There are supposed to be pamphlets for all of you in my mailbox for distribution tomorrow...
 
That said, here is a quote from the email I received from Administration: 

 "Students will have to log into their existing account.  All students will be required to update their email address.  In addition to all of the useful tools, students will use this program to submit ALL college applications. The directions are included in the pamphlet.  Please assign this as a homework."
 
I have to send confirmation of your compliance to Mrs. Santorelli & Mr. Abenes by THIS FRIDAY.  Be sure you follow the information above if you have an account already (seems like everyone is required to update their accounts) OR create one NOW if you don't already have one.  Yes, Seniors, I'm sure they mean you as well since it deals with college.  If you are unsure check with Mr. Abenes.
 
This means I have to count it as a grade, which means you will need to bring me some kind of proof that it was done.  Giving you a heads-up so you can take care of it pronto!

As a reminder...

...your Classwork grade for "Participation" includes being in class (unless legally absent), being prepared with all items necessary for class, and your behavior/participation in class on any given day.


It is labeled as "Participation" because you need all of the items listed to effectively participate in your education each & every day.

Friday, March 6, 2015

All Students: ALSO DUE ON MONDAY 3/9/15


All students are required to submit a parent-signed copy of their current Engrade report on Monday, 3/9/15. 

You only need to print a “cover sheet” (all it needs is your name & current average), not all the grades for the marking period.

Parents & Guardians – please discuss with your student any areas that he/she is not performing to your expectations.  We have just 15 weeks of school – all students need to perform at their best now & for the remainder of the year!

This will count as a test grade so is an easy way to give a little boost to your current average.  It is due on Monday…but be warned, you will lose 20 points for every day it is late.  It is due at the beginning of your class period on Monday, just like any other homework.
