Phew! We made it through the first full day of school. (174 more to go!)
Today, we reviewed the Syllabus. Specifically, we went over a few big concepts such as Participation Points, Book Projects, and Book Talks, all of which greatly impact your grade. Make sure you look them over again in your Syllabus to make sure you understand all the elements.
Your first assignment was assigned today. The back page of your Syllabus needs to be filled out by your parent/guardian. It is due by Friday for 20 points.
If you misplace your Syllabus, the document it located on the 'Course Documents' tab.
I also handed out a calendar for August and September. This allows you to know what to expect in class each day. A link for those calendars is located in the 'calendar' tab if you need another.
This is the seventh year Mrs. DeWitz has taught Freshman. It is her eighth year at Thornton.
