PARENTS:  WITH MIDTERMS COMING HOME ON WEDNESDAY, PLEASE KEEP A FEW THINGS IN MIND:

  • ALL DMR QUIZZES LOWER THAN A 4 CAN BE RETAKEN ON FRIDAY
  • ALL CFA POSTTEST SCORES WILL BE REPLACED WITH THE QUARTERLY
  • THE FEWER THE SCORES, THE LESS RELIABLE THE AVERAGE

You should always be able to see graded work coming home within 1-2 school days- students are told to always keep work to use as a study guide 🙂
