         Starting on Wednesday, August 26th, 2020, your first task will be to join my google classroom.  Make sure you choose the correct class code.  For example, if you are in period 2, make sure you copy the class code that is after period 2. I will be assigning new material that you will have to submit through Google Classroom.
         Besides Google Classroom, I will also be assigning Study Island Assignments (2A-2H) for the first quarter. You can go back and continue to work on Study Island assignments as many times as you can until you get a blue ribbon (70%). If you do not receive a blue ribbon the first try, keep working on that assignment until you get a blue ribbon. In contrast, once you turn in the Google Classroom assignments for the book, you can't go back and resubmit. Those assignments are one and done. I will do my best to continually update your averages in Focus (formerly MMS). Best of luck, stay healthy, and stay socially distant.
     
    Sincerely,
    Mr. Ruddy
