Announcement:  The students are learning how to check their grades and missing assignments in iNOW.   We will be checking them weekly.  They are also becoming familiar with the teacher websites found on wpm.ccboe.org under the Faculty tab.  All of their assignments are posted there weekly, so if they are absent, they know where to look for the necessary assignments they missed.
