Subject: Mr. DeBard's Class Update for the week of 5/15/2017 - 5/19/2017
Date: May 19th 2017
Happy Friday everyone!
THIS WEEK: We began our studies of the theme Reconstruction following the Civil War. We took a specific look at Lincoln's second Inaugural Address and how he planned to keep the nation together following the conflict. We concluded our Civil War studies with Lincoln's assassination. We are wrapping up the week with a Study Guide today that students can use to study for the Q4 Exam over the weekend.
NEXT WEEK: We will take our Q4 Exam on Monday 5/22! Please, remind your student to look over any notes they have taken in preparation. Next week is the last week of the school year! Congratulations to you and your student. We will be collecting laptops and locks next week as we wrap up the school year. More information is to come regarding those matters. You will be notified by the school. I will post final grades next week by 5/26.
GRADES: I have added two new grades to Skyward. You will find new grades for your student under the titled assignments "Generals in the Civil War" and "Civil War Battles Quiz," The only grade taken next week will be the Q4 Final Exam. Please, have a conversation with your student about their grade as we move into the last week of school.
If your student has a low grade or is simply missing assignments or wishes to redo an assignment, you will always be able to access those assignments on their Social Studies Canvas page under the 'Assignments' tab. There will be a title labeled "Q4 Missing Assignments." All assignments and instructions are posted under that section. You can check to see what assignments they are missing on Skyward! I am not accepting late assignments after 5/25.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding any of this information, please don't hesitate to contact me.
