Progress Report Grades

Progress reports are about to go home. If you have a "missing" or "incomplete" grade you need to be sure to complete your work and turn it in! I will be replacing missing grades with zeros before the end of the quarter grades.

*Please make sure you turn in late or missing assignments directly to me and not to your class box!
