Individual assignments will not be recorded in Powerschool.</p></blockquote><p>Ms. Sack, a counselor, wrote:</p><blockquote><p>While you may not get traditional “grades” per assignment in the way you become accustomed to, the work you turn in moving forward WILL still be evaluated/assessed by your teachers to help them determine whether raising your grade would be appropriate. They will still give you feedback about how you’re doing. In other words, you still have to earn the improvement in your overall grade by completing work and demonstrating engagement.</p></blockquote><h4 id=i-left-things-at-school-how-can-i-get-them>I left things at school.
