Art 2&3- I need your Selfies ASAP! send it to TODAY!!! If not, zeros in the grade book until selfies are ready. 

Tuesday, October 13, 2015


I am going to be updating the Gradebook starting today. This is the home stretch for the end of the 1st 9 weeks. EVERYTHING is due by end of the day Thursday, in order for me to grade/regrade/enter everything into the system. Students have been reminded of this and it's on the screen today too.
shown on the board/screen today
I will be going over grades with students as I see the need and will have students who have a failing grade as of Thursday to sign a 'Failure Sheet'. This simply states that they knew from day one what they needed to do in order to pass this class. 
I started contacting parents of students with failing grades on October 2, 2015. I will make another contact this week also. 



Wow.... Really where has the time gone? This school year is flying by!
I just wanted to share this reminder with you all. Since Friday is the last day of this 9 weeks.

Week of October 5-9

Art one students are starting their Day of the Dead Sugar Skull projects. They are creating one in honor of a loved one that has passed away or they are creating one to represent themselves. Today they are brainstorming/sketching out ideas. Tomorrow I will go over how they will be drawing it out and using symmetry to create their skulls.

Art 2 & 3 are finishing up their Zentangle projects this week. They are due at the end of the week.
They are also encouraged to get a selfie of themselves printed and ready to use for their next project. If they don't have a way to print out their image, they are encouraged to e-mail it to me at and put their name and selfie in the subject line.
