Extra Credit Opportunity!
Enter the PTA Reflections Contest for the chance to earn an additional 1% added to your overall grade at the end of the semester. For example, if you end with an "89" and have entered the Reflections Contest, your extra credit will bring you to a "90." This is the only way you can move any grade ending in a "9" up to the next letter-grade.
Please keep this in mind because I do not "bump" grades. Instead, I give you the opportunity to "bump" your own grade.
National PTA Reflections
