Important Post & Request About Candy Donations….

Parents & Students:

I’d love to continue to provide “candy” rewards to my Business students to encourage them to be more engaged in my lessons.  As you know, Halloween is on October 31st.  Retail stores normally mark down the price of candy after Halloween.  Please purchase a bag of candy for your child’s Business class.

I M P O R T A N T   N O T E :

I will only accept candy which is sealed in a closed bag.

I will not accept candy which students may have received on Halloween from strangers.

Thank you in advance for your support with this request. (;

Sincerely,

Ms. Heard

If I pick up my students in the theater before you arrive, just ask the study hall monitor (teacher) if my name (Ms. Heard) is on the list.

GRADES

Parents & Students

Do not panic if you see a 50 for a task in Synergy.  If you are in danger of receiving a 50 for an assignment which has not been turned in yet, you will be notified in Synergy.  The statement in Synergy also tells you the specific date the assignment is due.

I’m trying to help my students improve their “organization skills” so that they will turn in their assignments on a timely basis.  If the task is completed by the deadline, the mark will be replaced with the actual score that the student receives for the assignment.

The good news is that Business students “rarely” receive a zero for work which is not submitted.

 

Donations

Parents,

I’d really appreciate it if you would donate the following items which will be used in your child’s Business class:

  • box of tissues (any size)
  • bottle of hand sanitizer (any size)
  • individually wrapped candy…I use candy on a regular basis as an incentive to motivate my students to participate in classroom discussions, etc.  (;

Thank you in advance for your donation(s).  Your kindness is greatly appreciated!!!
