Week of April 20-24

As you have probably heard by now, we will begin having Zoom classes starting today for Core subjects. Our Social Studies class is scheduled for Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:00-3:00. I will be sending out the Zoom codes and passwords tomorrow in a text message. Be looking for you codes/passwords and be ready for class Tuesday. We will be going over the LEAP Practice test material and discussing it and the questons on Government (Ch. 4 material) beginning Thursday. 

 

Enjoyed seeing everyone on the Zoom meeting today (4/21). I will be placing a link on this page for the bonus assignments in the next couple of days. Check back to find the link. All bonus work will be due by Friday, May 15. Remember, the bonus work is not required; it is to enhance your grade if you choose. It will not count against you. Also, the only way to get the bonus points, is to complete the assigment. You do not get bonus credit just for showing up to the class.
