Last Week's Student Tweets

Check student grades online and Returning missing work

I have been entering student grades online using the Renweb gradebook, so please check it out. For help with navigating the Renweb site, please use these tutorials from last year: Written Instructions or Video Tutorial. The theme colors have changed since last year, but the basic format for navigating is the same. Please let me know if you have any trouble viewing student grades.

Additionally, I have repeatedly reminded students to keep their graded work packets, which are returned every Friday. Please store it in a location at home for the rest of the trimester. DO NOT throw out graded work until after report cards at the end of the trimester! This is important in case I make a mistake with data entry (which unfortunately happens on occasion... sorry I'm not perfect!).

Serving at Neighborhood House

We are in need of one volunteer for Tuesday, October 28th when we go to Neighborhood House to volunteer. We will be walking over to their building in Multnomah Village at 12:30pm, serving for about 45 minutes by sorting donations and stocking shelves for people in the neighborhood, and returning to school by 1:45pm. If you would like to help chaperone on the trip, please sign up here. Thank you!
