Lately grammar quizzes have been very low. We spend quite a bit of time in class working on new concepts and then it's up to students to study at home before quizzes. I give students quite a bit of notice before a quiz and it is written on the board as well as posted in the homework section of this website. I have been very surprised with the amount of, "What, the quiz is today?" kind of comments I receive on the day of quizzes! I certainly allow retakes for any quiz or test, however these are time consuming and often can be confusing when we move on to new concepts.
Please encourage your child to study for quizzes before they take them and check this website regularly for homework assignments and notices about upcoming quizzes.
The Maine Sportsman magazine is holding their first youth writing contest. There are some cash prizes available. Deadline is May 15, 2019. I am available to any student that would like to give this contest a try and would like some help with drafting, revising, and editing.
