Binder Checks!

7th and 8th Grade Students & Parents:

Binder Checks are coming! These binder checks will count as a quiz grade on Quarter 2.

Students have created checklists of what order their materials should be in in their binders with me during class.

Students also had multiple class periods to organize their binders in preparation for the binder check. This was done so that students WOULD NOT have homework over Winter Break.

Students should follow these checklists in order to get the highest grade possible for the binder check.

8th Grade Binder Check Dates:
8A & 8B: Tuesday, 1/3 during class
8C: Wednesday, 1/4 during class

7th Grade Binder Check Dates:
7C: Wednesday, 1/4 during class
7A & B: Thursday, 1/5 during class

Homework Averages

7th and 8th Graders,

I have updated Aspen to include your homework averages for the midway point of Quarter 2. As you know, grades close TOMORROW for progress reports. These averages will factor into your progress report grade. Please check to see how it has affected your class average as a whole.

Any questions please see me after class tomorrow before I close grades out over the weekend and submit them!

Those of you away in Florida- I need to see your makeup work Monday after class so I can adjust your average with any missing work. If not, your grade will remain as is.

-Ms. Mirabella
