* Note about online classes.  Students must attend online class just as they would in person.  You must be dressed in appropriate school attire (no pajamas or inappropriate t-shirts).  You must have your camera turned on during class.  Be on time.  Participate.  Ask questions.  Although online class is a bit different than in person, I am positive that we can have a productive and successful class with your engagement.  

Uniform:  We will be having uniform inspection virtually.  Once you are fitted and have the uniform we will wear them each Thursday for class.  Again, you must have your cameras turned on so I can see to grade you.  Normally we wear them all day in school but in a virtual world you have a choice.  Wear it during my class for credit.  If you chose to stay in uniform throughout the school day I will give you extra credit.  To receive the extra credit you will take a photo, or screenshot, of the other classroom Zooms you are in, and submit them to me that Thursday.

Grading:  Assignments, classwork and assessments will be graded just like if we were in person.   Please make sure you adhere to the due dates and submit your classwork on time in order to be eligible for the highest grade possible.  I expect engagement and participation during the classroom sessions.  If you have any questions or concerns you can email me at: 

REMIND:  Please join my class REMIND account.  This will give you a quick way to contact me in the event of online connectivity issues or other concerns.
