Dear Parent(s) / Guardian(s) and Student(s):
You need not wait for the progress report, 6 weeks into the semester, to receive your Schoology code.
The tablet program, as much as possible, is an effective tool we can use to become a paperless society. Thus, each student get their assignments from Schoology and post most class work on Turn It In and on Schoology as per the teacher's requests.
Another way to keep up with the student's grades is to visit StudentsAchieve as often as possible. The student’s updated grade is NOT located on Schoology. Please note, beginning each semester, my grades will be posted toward the end of week 5. Following week 5, grade updates are once a week or by weekly pending on the unit length. Also, at the end of week 5, Kingsway College will send you a progress report and a letter informing you of the parent/teacher conference date and other information required to access StudentsAchieve . This way it is easy to quickly flag potential problems. If you have trouble accessing StudentsAchieve request some help from the Kingsway College Records Office. Again, you need not wait for the progress report, 6 weeks into the semester, to receive your StudentsAchieve code.
Should a student have assignments not handed in (NHI), it may be possible to turn in some of these assignments. The student should talk with the teacher and see what can be done to better the grade.
Extra help? - I am available from 2:30 - 3:30 Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. An appointment must be requested. Often a student only needs 15 minutes to verify their understanding.
It is best to communicate with me via e-mail (my computer is near me most of the day). If you phone me, you will likely get my voice mail. Please leave me a message. It should not be long before I get back to you.
If you need to meet with me, please make an appointment. If we cannot meet between 2:30 - 3:30 Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, it may be possible to meet after school, @ 3:30.
I am looking forward to a successful school year.
All the best,
André Langevin, M.A.
