This week you received your mid-term grades and comments from your teachers. I want to encourage you all to make excellent use of my office hours during these last 6 weeks of Fall term. Grades that are low can improve a LOT between now and then. Understanding and comfort in knowing that you are understanding the material can be obtained fairly easily if you, the student, are willing to invest in yourself enough to come see me and get help. I am available Monday through Thursday after school and during lunch on Tuesday (bring your lunch to the classroom and eat lunch while we clarify your questions!). Or, if the question can be answered via email, send me one!! (firstname.lastname@example.org) I cannot help you earn a better grade if YOU don’t try to help yourself!! ‘Nuff said. Now, let’s get to work!!
