IF YOU ARE ABSENT:
A note to students: I suggest students pair up with a Study Buddy.  Students should exchange phone numbers or email addresses with another student in class. Please email me if you know in advance that you will be gone for a planned absence (so that I have enough time to get work together for you).
 

REGARDING GRADES:
Have you been online to check your grades lately? You should go online regularly to check your scores.  Grades are always available for parents and students to view online any time.  Please contact the school front office if you are having technical difficulties or need a password or help with logging in.  Please allow me plenty of time for assignments, assessments, projects, etc. to be scored and updated in the online gradebook.
Grading categories are as follows: 90% Academic Content, and 10% Academic Behavior and College Readiness (practices, formative assessment, prepared, collaboration, etc.) 
 

ART CURRICULUM:

Art students will learn the 7 Elements of Art- Texture, Value, Form, Color, Line, Shape, and Space.
Art students will focus on artistic perception, creative expression, art history, aesthetic valuing, and making art connect to other subjects and careers.

Thank you.
