• Week of 10/18 - 22:

     

    Hello Mustangs and parents. Here is this week's reminders!

     

    We made it through the first 9 weeks!!!!!!  All grades have to be verified by the 18th at midnight by all teachers! If your student has any zeros, this will be their last chance to turn in anything! In my classes, I have worked with all students to do my best to get them caught up. If there is a zero that is because there was never anything turned into me! If a student at least tries, I give a grade! Zeros mean they never gave me it even after presenting and/or reminding them of it multiple times!

    With this in mind next monday 10/ 25 there is not school for the students. The teachers will have adjusted hours 11am -7 pm that day to accomidate any parent/ teacher conferences. These will be virtual or by phone. If you do not sign up on the web site, please email me the best phone number and best way to call you. I will try my best to reach out to every parent on this day.

    •  The best way to contact me is always my school email: hridgeway@acpsd.net   I check it throughout the day.

     ***********Also I have set up a new classroom number.  [  (803) 443 - 6498 ] I can send and receive texts and will be able to call on my planning periods ONLY!*******

    If your ever absent or quarintined please see below!!!! (This is your expectations!!) Most students are coming back with nothing and are falling behind!

    • If officially quarentined. I will get a notice and also please contact me and log in to the Teams live session link located in Schoology. (I will only go live if there is a student in the class on quarentined, if no absence, no need to go live.  Live sessions align with class schedule times)
    • Go to the powerpoint slides  tab on my teacher page and review what we are cover in class.
    • Do your journals at home from my slides and bring them in!   
    • All materials needed are listed in Schoology!!!!!!!
    • Any worksheets listed I can email you or you can pick up at school with 24 hr notice.
    • Always do your IXCEL daily (min of 15 minutes in math and 15 minutes in Reading.

     * Due to testing and my absences, we will be continueing last week's work into this week. Have a wonderful, beautiful week!

    Parents please check Powerschool and remind your students most teachers are cutting off all assignments by the end of the week. I have given all of my students print outs of their missing assignments and low grades. They know what they need to do and now with the extra 25 minutes in the advisory class in the morning, they have plenty of oppurtunities.
