Due to the unexpected closure of schools, final averages will be calculated by averaging coursework completed before the closure on March 16th, 2020 (1st, 2nd, & 3rd quarter average). If you are satisfied with your current average (1st, 2nd, & 3rd quarter average) and would like to maintain your current average, you will not need to turn in/submit any additional Distance Learning Assignments. If you are not satisfied with your current average, you may continue to work on Distance Learning Assignments that will potentially improve your average.
For either choice, please reply to this email by Monday, April 20th with the following information:
Course(s) enrolled with Mr. Brewer:
YES, I am satisfied with my current average OR
NO, I am not satisfied with my average and I will continue to submit Distance Learning Assignments to potentially improve my grade.
If I do not receive a response by Monday, April 20th, I will assume you are accepting your current average as it stands now.
** I am still available for you to submit recordings of you playing for feedback as you work independently or one-on-one video conferencing lessons to help you in real time on anything you're working on, just let me know!**
