Welcome to the Second Trimester

Welcome to the second trimester!  I wanted to take a moment and mention some changes to the science program.  While we are continuing to pilot the McGraw Hill curriculum until December, I am making some changes to my grading.

1.  In the second trimester, quizzes will count for 70% and classwork will count for 30%.  

2.  All work is due (either handed in with the notebook or submitted online) on the day of the quiz.  If the quiz is on Lesson 1, then all work related to Lesson 1 is due that day.  If it is not turned in then, it can be turned in late for half credit by the next class period.  If it is not turned in then, it will be counted as missing and given a zero.  A note of late or missing work will be included in Power School.  Absences do not count against the deadline.

How to Access McGraw Hill

1.  Open a web browser and bring up Google.

2.  Make sure no user is currently signed in.

3.  Have your child click "Sign In".  He/she needs to sign in just like he/she would on a Chromebook at school.  Please make sure to include the @dcjesd.us in the username.

4.  After sigining in, click the "Waffle" in the upper right hand corner (see first picture).

5.  From the list of apps, scroll down until you see "McGraw Hill" (see second picture).

6.  Your child's McGraw Hill page will show up.  There is Wonders, the language arts program, and Inspire, the science program (see last picture).

7.  Once your child is on the Inspire homepage, he/she can check assignments by using the "Assignments" link on the left.
