Here's your first set of assignments for Virtual Summer School 2014.
You should see a folder in both your Math and Language Arts folders titled "VSS2014_# Pre-Summer Due June 19". You can earn 5 points for completing the math folder and another 5 points for completing the language arts folder. The folder will disappear from your account once it's completed. This is how you can tell that you have done everything. If you do not see these folders, it probably means that you have not signed up for Virtual Summer School. Have your parents sign up using the online sign up form link on the right side of this blog.
You can earn up to 5 points for completing this week's reading assignment. You can find the reading passage under the "Weekly Reading Forms" section on the right of the blog.
You can also begin submitting Reading Tracker Forms for any books that you read from now on. The link to the form is on the right side of this blog. You can also find out how many points you can earn for submitting books by looking at the "How To Earn Points" section to the right.
