Parents/Guardians,
The norm for me is once I correct an assignment for the entire class a mark of 0% will be in place should the evaluation be missing or not handed in. The mark (0%) acts as a placeholder until the assignment gets submitted. By the end of term 1 should the assignment not be submitted the mark of 0% will remain unchanged. If I did not put the 0% in the mark would show as much higher. This way, parents/guardians do not see a pseudo (inflated) mark and can ensure the work gets completed.

Hi Students and Parents,

Hoping everyone is doing well as we adjust to a new norm for the unforeseeable future. Just want to reiterate to everyone that ZOOM Meetings will continue to take place twice a week:
Tuesdays and Thursdays @ 12:00 noon for grade 8's.

Work will continue to be assigned via Google Classroom. We just finished the novel, 'The Outsiders', in grade 8. All assigned work that students attempt will be graded. Should a student's average remain the same or improve it will be entered in PowerSchool. Should the mark decrease one's average it will not be entered.

Please keep in mind that learning will continue and the curriculum in the English course will be covered. The goal for doing such is to give each student every advantage as they transition into the next grade. A number of students have been active and participating in both the video conferencing sessions and completing assigned work via Google Classroom. Some students have not been active on video conferencing but are doing assigned work on Google Classroom. Both are acceptable and beneficial for students.
However, if a student is not participating in any form of educational activity - for example the core subjects (math, science, English, social studies, French) they may put themselves at a disadvantage:
1) not participating results in student not being able to improve one's average
2) students at risk of failing or currently not passing have an opportunity to do assignments to improve one's mark. There are students who need to engage and they are not.

Parents are urged to check with their child(ren) to ensure they are engaged and active with their academics. Teachers at MDJH have been posting regularly on Google Classroom.

Proceeds go to the purchase of chrome books for the math department and the WE foundation of which MDJH supports. The 8-1 homeroom asks:
i) If you would like to donate a cake or pie for the auction please visit the schools website. Donations can be dropped off on Thursday evening 6-9 PM at the school or Friday morning.
ii) Students are asked to donate $$ to participate in the auction on Friday. All classes will receive at least one cake. Homeroom classes get to select their cake based on the amount of money they bring into homeroom. Hence, class with most money donated select first and so forth.

When students and parents/guardians check Power School you may see a mark of zero (0%) for an assignments(s). This practice is quite common at MDJH. The zero acts as a placeholder until any outstanding work is handed into the subject teacher. The reason: students and parents/guardians do not see a pseudo mark for the student. If zeros are not put in place for work/assignments not completed or handed in, the Power School mark will not reflect a student's performance. Subsequently, marks will tend to be inflated. Hence, zeros will remain in place until outstanding work is handed in and corrected. By the end of term I any work not submitted will result in a mark of zero permanently.
