 MP2 Mid-year Project:

         Students were given sufficient time during November to prepare and research their MP2 Project based on the subject matter, due 12/1/17.  Each class was given an opportunity to pick their class team-mate (if decide to work 'solo'- extra credit). Project is based on producing a 'Power-Point' on Chapters/topics/sub-topics learned so far. Rules, rubrics and grading criteria were discussed each week, also reminders given intermittently. Presentations will take place the week of 12/4/17 and complete prior to Spirit Week. Each power-point needs to have at least 5 important pertinent information slides, not counting Creator-Title, Start-The End, Annotations, etc page. Scoring will be based as a Summative Test Project Grade~60 % with Presentation & Research.

Last but not least, with all the distractions of fundraiser sales, competitions, spirit week activities, festivities and high-spirits, students will be constantly reminded of their responsibility, awareness and importance of maintaining good grades amidst everything!
