    Hello!

    Good Morning - 

    All missing work is due Wednesday, September 23rd by the end of the school day. I will be posting grades after school on 9/23.

    I will be giving students time to complete missing work in class from 9/14 - 9/23, so please check your students grade to see what they are missing and check in with them to make sure they are using their class time this week and next week to get it done. 

    Students have 2 assignments that are due today Monday Septmeber 14th, that I will be grading this week. Those assignments are the Collage and Collage Reflection. All other assignments have been graded and updated in the gradebook to reflect students current grade in my class. I will be grading the other 2 assignments this week and will update here when they have been added to the gradebook.

    I will be offering tutoring after school Wednesday 9/16 from 2:30 - 3:30 pm for students who have questions about assignments or need extra help. I may also offer tutoring Monday 9/21, please check back here for more info.

    Good Afternoon -

    I just wanted to let everyone know that I have just created and uploaded a video of "How to Turn in Artwork on Google Classroom". We had our 2nd art project due today in class, and some students were having difficulties with turning it in using Google Classroom. This video should be very helpful for those students. 

    The video can be found under Important Links (for parents) and Google Classroom under Technology How to Videos (for students). Please watch the video if you need help turning in your assignment. I also have 2 other videos that show how to take a picture of your artwork using your phone or your computer. I would recommend watching one of those videos first if you do not know how to take a picture of your artwork and upload it to your computer. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns or need additional help with these videos. 

    Thank you and have a good evening!

    E-mail sent out (8/20/2020)

    I sent an email and posted on my Teacher Site about a week ago regarding an update to grades in Art. Please make sure you are checking your student's grades on ParentVUE or have your students show you their grades on StudentVUE. I have been checking in with students this week about missing assignments in my class, but still have some students who have yet to turn in any work. I only have 2 graded assignments so far in my class, but students have another assignment due next week. I also have 1 extra credit opportunity for students which is an online scavenger hunt. The 2 assignments that have been graded so far are: 

    - Creative Types Quiz (5pts)

    - Logo/Mascot Design (25pts)

    Descriptions of both assignments can be found in Google Classroom or you can reach out to me with any questions. If students are missing either of these assignments, it will appear in the gradebook as 50% and it will be marked as "missing". Please have students send me missing assignments in an email - abaumann@goaj.org. 

    I have been trying to catch up with students who are missing work this week, but I would appreciate your help in talking with your student about their grades and assignments. I will be posting Progress grades tomorrow after school, however students have until the end of the 1st Quarter to turn in any missing assignments. As always please let me know if you have any questions or concerns and I will continue to send updates through email and my Teacher Site. Thank you!

    - Ms. Baumann

     

    Info on Getting Signed up for Google Classroom Updates: (8/14/2020)

    Also I went through and updated more parent/guardian email addresses in Google Classroom. So if you gave me your email address to receive updates from Google Classroom, you have been sent an invitation which you need to accept in order to begin receiving updates. If you are trying to accept the invitation from your cell phone, make sure you do not have the Google Classroom app installed. If you do, you will need to delete it in order to accept the invitation from your cell phone. If you are accepting the invitation from a computer, you do not need to worry about this. 

    Updates are set to "Weekly" by default. That means you will receive updates to the email address you provided every Friday afternoon. If you would like to receive updates daily, you will need to provide an @gmail.com email address. Unfortunately you are only able to edit your preferences for the updates if you give me an @gmail.com email address. Daily updates will be sent to the gmail address you provided each afternoon. 

    I hope this brings more clarification to the Google Classroom updates if anyone was having problems or wondering why they have not received any updates yet. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions, comments, or concerns at abaumann@goaj.org. Or if you have not filled out the form to be added to the Google Classroom updates, please click this link to fill out the form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScqBfavyaSf_naK5c5_Mv0rpOmd2Wr609af_bAiG_cQfFIFUQ/viewform?usp=sf_link
