Students encouraged to retake tests Monday or Tuesday before the quarter ends when we come back from spring break. Remember to have retake packets completed and test corrections done or attempted before coming in to do so -- no sense retaking something you've not practiced. -- retake problems sitting with class notes in S2 worksheets.
All tests and quizzes have been given out: If you have a 0 or * for chapter 7 minitest, ch 8 quiz, ch 8 test, ch 6 quiz, ch 6 test, ch 10 formula quiz, ch 10 test, or quarterly assessment: See me on Monday to rectify this situation.
