Students and Parents:
Please be advised that Mr. Hatfield will hold an 'Open House' just for his Biology classes on Wednesday, October 8th, in Room T-5 (one of a group of trailers in the South Parking Lot), between 5:30 and 7:30 in the evening.
Mr. Hatfield has decided to try doing this at least once this semester because there is just too much going on at Bullard's Open House. Typically, there is only 15 minutes or so with each teacher before the announcement comes over the PA to move along to the next period, and this just isn't very helpful.
Also, since we just had our first Unit Test of the year today, a week from today (when the Test and most of the work from August and September will be in Power School) seems like a good time to touch base and make sure expectations are understood.
THE REQUIRED ASSIGNMENT: UPDATE!
Students and parents should've previously signed a Course Contract which stipulates that students agree to have a valid e-mail address and use the online integrity software "Turnitin.com."
Mr. Hatfield intends for all students to use this valuable resource on a regular basis, beginning with the Required Assignments (RA). Mr. Hatfield requires students to submit RA's directly to "Turnitin.com" and has extended the deadline for the submission of all Unit 1 RA's until September 30th. Students who do not complete the scheduled assignment as directed are failing to satisfy a fundamental requirement of the Course Contract and could be considered defiant. Mr. Hatfield will resolve this by contacting the home and, if necessary, assigning students to Study Hall.
Students who need the paperwork on how to establish the necessary account can download it here as a PDF file.
Please note: the original date for the Open House (Oct. 1st) has been changed to the 8th following the request of parents who have not yet had a chance to review their student's first test.
