By March 29th, they should have completed all modules except for the unit test, which can be completed by March 30th.
For modules due on May 1stYou can access a break down of the due dates from the home page by clicking on the tab for your grade level. For example, if you are in 9th grade, you will click on the tab that says "9th grade online learning". This will take you to a page that has a calendar with the due dates (and explanations of what is due) and a document that lists out due dates as well. These modules do not officially need to be started until after Spring Break!

Ongoing Assignment Reminder:
Parents and students,
Since each student will need to complete one book review per quarter, I suggest thinking about what book you would like to read for the second review due on December 9, 2019. Students will submit their book titles on October 21 for a grade. See assignment schedule on the home page for more information and due dates.
Remember that even if I haven't officially assigned homework,
it will be your responsibility to keep up with your reading, annotating, and writing. Use your time wisely!
