    Weekly check-in (“attendance”) – reminder to reply via email by Thursday, attendance will be entered into MyEd at the end of each week.

    All courses – your next due dates for what is listed below is May 4 (soft deadline)/May 8 (hard deadline); this set up regarding deadlines is meant to provide you with flexibility according to your individual circumstances but be careful about procrastination.  It is recommended by many to try and have a somewhat regular schedule regarding your routines, and to make sure that you have regular breaks from your online/screen time.  As per these online assignments, the format you choose to submit is up to you depending on your preferences and abilities (what you are capable of but also interesting and fun hopefully), but please make sure that your work is your own work (if incorporating work from other sources as support this should be noted/cited) and to check that your submission has been actually loaded as some student submissions for previous work remains blank.  Post your finished work in BOTH your DIGITAL PORTFOLIO and in TEAMS.

    Assessment – as per direction from the District and Ministry, course work during this time of online learning as continuity of your educational programs serves as an opportunity to further enhance and raise your learning outcomes; students are encouraged to take advantage of these opportunities to enhance your course standing in working towards your final course marks.  Regular engagement (attendance check-ins combined with submission of work) will only result in a greater standing and overall improved final course mark.

    Any questions or issues (assignment-related or not), please contact me; be well and stay safe!
