One Week to Go!

With this last week before Winter Break, both groups of Social Studies students on 7.8/3 will be working on submitting their work due Friday. For each group, there are specific requirements that will constitute full submission of work on Friday:
7th Grade Assessments on Chapter 6
2 sets of Check Your Progress Questions from Chapter 6
One completed Chapter 6 Assessment

8th Grade Assessments on Howard Zinn
One completed Enrichment Sheet on Howard Zinn
One completed Assessment on Howard Zinn

In the end, these are the only elements upon which we are placing focus for this week. Work will be collected on Friday or prior to student departure for Winter Break. As per policy, there will not be a late option for these assessments as there is no late work for second trimester. As the bustle of the last week before break takes hold, please keep the talking points for academic success in the forefront of your discussions. Nothing bad can result from asking your emerging scholar questions such as, "Where are you on your assessment?" or "What's your plan for meeting his deadline?" These could open up paths of discussion that could spare some significant heartbreak later on down the trimester's road. Grades will be updated before the end of Winter Recess.

Wish you and your family all the best this holiday season.
Mr. Kannan
