First, today students took the final exam. They are all graded and entered into TeacherEase if you would like to see your student's score. I will hand back the exam questions tomorrow. For your reference, the overall class average for 11 students was an 80% after adjustment. The first place score was a 94%. The exam is out of 100 points, but was adjusted to 95 points to account for the overall performance of the class. Nevertheless, all students gave it their all and did an amazing job! The current overall grade shown in TeacherEase is your student's final grade in this class. I have also wrote a few comments for each student in TeacherEase so please look for that as well! Treat the grades and comments in TeacherEase like it is a report card. if you have any questions regarding grades, feel free to let me know! I am extremely proud of the progress that all students have made.
Second, tomorrow will be the last class session. There are a few things included in the course schedule that I have not gone over, so I will be doing that tomorrow. In addition, I will be going over in detail how to answer CogAT type questions, so please have your student remember to bring their workbook tomorrow! Furthermore, students will be exchanging the "money" they earned in class for prizes tomorrow. Please also remember to remind your student to bring their "money"!
Third, I would like to thank all parents for their support throughout this summer camp. It is your support that has made this class a success! I would also like to thank all of the students for all their hard work and for putting a smile on my face everyday. Words cannot describe my gratitude! This has truly been one of the best groups of students I have ever had. I know for a fact all students have a bright future ahead of them.
Fourth, as is tradition, it would be great if parents could take a quick survey on their experience having their child in my class. Your feedback is valuable as it will help me grow as a teacher. You can access the survey here: https://mrhansondai.weebly.com/surveys.html
Thank you for taking the time to take this survey!
Have a wonderful rest of your summer and best of luck to all students on the gifted qualification exams!
