Many parents, students, subs and even teachers are surprised that we have a flex day this Thursday, November 3. So, what is this flex day all about? The FLT day on Thursday will allow students with half semester courses that required time to study or finish up incomplete assignments prior to starting a new term course. It also allows students in full semester courses a chance to catch up on what they are missing, either in work, or in understanding.
I am not forcing any of my classes to come in for FLT. Students may choose to attend class, to complete the summative #1 rewrite, or they may simply choose not to come to school. I feel by providing the opportunity for ALL students to rewrite on this FLT day, it will force kids to study and write the summative #1 without risk. That way, they are already studying for Summative #2 (the following Monday).
Please encourage your son or daughter to put the effort in, correct the original summative #1 and try the rewrite. There is no risk, as if they do worse on the rewrite, the original mark will remain. If they do better, the rewrite mark will replace the original. Free studying and free marks! Come on!
