1st Hour: 8th Grade, 2nd Quarter, 2016-2017

**Extra Credit is emailed out each week - take advantage of each of these extra credit opportunities.  Once the opportunity expires, it is too late to get that extra credit.  Extra credit can only help you grade.

**You also have “PLUS POINTS” you could use to boost a score.  You have 2 sets of “PLUS POINTS”, be sure to use them.  Your “PLUS POINTS” expire each quarter - do not let them go to waste.
