* Note about grading:  As stated in the email that went out prior to the Spring Break you cannot receive a end of semester grade lower than what your grade was on March 13th.  That said, I hope that all of you stay involved and continue on this unique educational route we are currently on.  I will begin populating grades into the Synergy grade book reflecting the work you turned in prior to the break and going forward.  Remember..you have nothing to lose but everything to gain by staying involved in class.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assignment Checklist.  Many of you ask if I have received your assignments. I will always send you a message stating that I "Got it".  Also, the link below will show you if I have received it. I will update it regularly through the week.  Please refer to it for anything you have submitted.

MARCH'S RECEIVED ASSIGNMENT CHECKLIST

Grading guidelines for the remainder of the semester:

Students and Parents, 

 This notification is to inform you of the latest information released by the county regarding your child’s grade. As noted from the district communication, students have a choice to accept their grades as of March 13, 2020 as final grades for the 2019-2020 school year OR continue to earn grades for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year to improve their grade(s). We want to clarify that if a student chooses not to participate, perform or actively engage with his/her teacher(s) and they do not take advantage of assignment opportunities, this will result in their final grade being the grade that they had on March 13th. The only way for the March 13th grade to improve is for the student to submit assignments and participate in the digital learning opportunities made available to him/her by the teacher. 

 --------------------------------------------------------------

***ASSIGNMENTS***  Assignments will be posted here in red with downloadable content in green.  Students should print the assignment if possible, do the applicable related work and then scan/take a photo and send it to:  allen.harris@cobbk12.org or send through the class Remind system by the due date.   Students that do not have a printer at home can hand write the assignment on a piece of paper and then scan/take a picture and email it.

Book related information is below.  The textbook is accessible via the link.  The unit/chapter PPT presentations are also listed below for easy accessibility. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

FINAL EXAM.  The time has come to wrap this up.  The final is primarily over the First Aid chapter with a few previous chapters and general knowledge questions thrown in.  The text book is allowed for the text based questions but please answer the general knowledge by memory just as you would if we were in the classroom.  Good Luck and I look forward to seeing you all next school year!

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Week 8: May 11-19, 2020.  This week is the First Aid chapter.  It's a long one and runs from page 320-374.  It covers basic first aid, CPR, poisons, heat/cold and venomous bites just to name a few.  There are 12 questions at the end of the chapter on page 374.  Do those questions and submit as a weekly grade.

Uniform assignment. This is the last week so you choose.   Send me a new and unique photo of you in uniform or you wearing your alternate uniform (polo and khaki pants).  

******NEXT WEEK IS THE FINAL EXAM******  It will be over this week's large First Aid chapter with general knowledge and previous chapter questions sprinkled in.  The Final will be posted on Sunday morning and is due by Tuesday at midnight.  That will give you basically 3 days in order to take the test and submit.  Please plan accordingly

-------------------------------------------

Week 7: May 4-8, 2020   This week is the cumulative test over the alcohol and drug awareness chapter (U5C9).   Print the test below, complete and submit via email or Remind by the end of the week.   Use the test located further down this page for a reference.

Test: U5C9 Alcohol and Drug Test - May 2020.pdf

Uniform: This week is what we call a hanger inspection.   The uniform shirt/blouse should be assembled 100%.  Everything in the correct place but hanging on the hanger.  Take a photo of your clean/pressed and assembled uniform top and send it to me.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Week 6: April 27 - May 1, 2020  This week we will utilize the Georgia Department of Drivers License Services website in order to complete the Alcohol Awareness and Drug Program (ADAP).  You need the certificate of completion in order to be eligible to receive your driver's learning permit.  There is no cost to this course but it does take about 4 hours to complete.  You must have your own email address in order to register.  If you do not have one speak to your parent/guardian about create one. 

When you registered...choose "other" as the reason you are taking it online.
