Extra Credit Opportunities


Extra Credit Policy:

Extra credit opportunities are provided several times each trimester
they are entered into the gradebook as an extra assignment (e.g. 20/20 points), NOT out of 0 (which skews the gradebook)
Extra assignments still boost your average. the advantage is that they are completion credit, so as long as you complete them thoroughly, you have a100%!

New opportunities may arise throughout the school year. This page is updated to reflect those opportunities as they arise. Below you will find some of the recurrent opportunities.
