A few things to conclude week two:
1) I showed grades. The meme expresses what many of you asked me after seeing your grades. I address this policy very clearly in the syllabus and we discussed it in class at length. It's important that you remember that just because you did the work, doesn't mean you automatically get an 'A.' The quality of the work must be above average or excellent to earn an 'A.'
2) On Friday we took the Gates Pre-Test. Many band members missed class on Friday, and some started their long weekends early. Be ready to take this assessment when you return next week. This assessment is important to understanding your current reading level, so we can measure your growth this school year.
I hope you're enjoying your looooong weekend. I also hope you're reading a book!
