As we head toward the end of the first marking period I hope you are taking a moment to reflect on how you did. If you find your grades are lower than your expectations, don’t panic yet; Some students need time to get into the swing of things and once they settle in to a routine the rest of the semester becomes a success. Other students need the little bolt of motivation that comes from a poor first marking period performance. The good news is that it’s not too late – everyone can dig out of a first marking period slump; I like to say it’s not about how you start, but how you finish that matters.
On the other hand, if you did well the first marking period – Great Job and Keep Up the Good Work.
More to come,
