Week of 10/17/16 - 10/21/16

posted Oct 14, 2016, 2:31 PM by Angela Furnari

Friday, 10/21 is the last day of the 1st nine weeks grading period.  Please make sure you are checking GradeSpeed/ PS Connect, and reviewing grades with your child.  Even better, please check that your child has created his/her own student GradeSpeed login, and have them review their grades with you.  

It is not too late to turn in work that they are missing or need to redo for my class.  

I will be having Study Hall on Tuesday until 5:30 p.m. should your child need to go.  If your child is NOT already in extended day, and needs to attend my Study Hall, please email or text me if your child will be attending.  That way I know your child is sure about how they are getting home.
