Grades Online
If your 4th quarter grade is higher than your semester grade, your 4th quarter is improving your semester grade over 3rd quarter. If, however, your semester grade is higher than your 4th quarter grade, your 4th quarter grade is dragging your semester grade down. Only your semester grades are recorded on your high school transcript, not quarter grades.

Grading Policy
If you're missing assignments, catch up while you can!

Basic Classroom Rules
Leave your immaturity at the door.
