When a student is absent from class, they are given the opportunity to make up their grade by typing/writing a one full page report. The report. The report must be on a newspaper or sports article, or anything related to sports or health. Examples of articles to write about are juvenile diabetes, cancer, the Spurs, any NFL team, or anything about a family member who may be ill. Students will have one week to complete the assignment. If you have any questions or concerns about your article, please come and speak with me.
