The Quarter ends tomorrow, so of course, today the emails begin. Why is my grade so low, what can I do to bring my grade up, can I do a book talk?
Remember at the beginning of the semester when I talk about doing the book talks as you go and not waiting until the end? No, you are only allowed to do one book talk a day. Shouldn’t have waited until the end. Really, you read a 600-page book over the weekend, but it has taken you an entire semester to read that 200-page book?
Can I come in after school to make up my test? I am sorry but I have a meeting right after school and you were supposed to make up that test 2 weeks ago. But, I didn’t have time then. But I saw you walking the hallways before school every day for the past month.
Can I still submit that paper that was due back in January? No, I am sorry it is two months past the due date.
But my Dad is going to be mad and I am going to be grounded for Spring Break. Really, I am sorry, maybe you can use that time to read a book or think about how you will do things better for 4th quarter. Oh, and be glad that the 3rd quarter grade doesn’t go on your transcript.
