    • Reminder about answering open ended reading comprehension questions in complete sentences and not starting with pronouns or because. Too any points are being lost simply because some of you don’t follow directions!
    • Please check grades regularly on power school. Come see me when you see a M which means missing work.
    • You will be marked off points for not following directions such as answering questions in complete sentence, starting open-ended questions with pronouns instead of restating the questions and not adding correct capitalization and punctuation.  If a questions is not answered in complete sentences and the directions stated it clearly, you will get the entire question marked wrong.  You will lose 2 points for every start with pronouns, lack of punctuation and capitalization up to a maximum of 10 points on any single assignment.
