Notes: 

  • Students who received a score of 70% or below on Learning Target quizzes need to re-take them to improve their score and to receive a passing grade showing that they understand the learning target. The cut-offs for re-takes are:
    • LT #2.3 - students who received a score of 8.5 or less (out of possible 12 pts.).
    • LT #2.4 - students who received a score of 7 or less (out of possible 11 pts.).

* In order to do a re-take, students need to KEEP their old quiz, and BRING it in, with the correct answers (with explanations) on a SEPARATE SHEET on the items they missed. This will qualify them "ready to re-take" the quiz. Re-takes are to be done outside of regular class time, and can be done before-school, after-school, during recess, or during B.E.S.T. class. Students should make arrangements with Mr. Usem to do the re-takes. Students will have 2 weeks from when the quizzes are handed back to complete the re-take.

  • (Deadlines for LT#2.3 and LT#2.4 are: Monday, Oct 26)
  • (Deadlines for LT#2.5 and LT#2.7 are: Wednesday, Oct 28)

- students can come and work with Mr. Usem a variety of times each day, if they need extra help. Available times are posted in the classroom, as well as on Mr. Usem's webpage
