Attention: ALL 7th and 8th Grade Students..

Hola,

I have just logged onto Aspen and updated all of your homework averages as of today, 12/19. For some of you, this new homework average has impacted your overall average quite a bit. Take a look to see what your average is as of today.

Remember, homework is VERY few and far between. Make sure you complete all assignments for the rest of quarter 2, and start off quarter 3 strong! No excuses not to do homework!
