Welcome to Mrs. McPherson New Mexico History Class!!


Good morning everyone, I hope your Spring Break was enjoyable for y'all despite our current circumstance :) 

If you or your parents have not seen the communication from the District, please go to the district website and review the information they have sent.  There are a number of helpful instructions and information.

Starting Monday, April 13th the assignments in the Google Classroom are mandatory.  You will also be given the opportunity to raise your 3rd quarter grade.

Here’s how this will all work:

1. The 2nd semester is now weighted at 80% 3rd quarter and 20% semester 2 final exam.

2. You can replace grades in Q3 to improve your grade.  I will provide you with a section in the classwork feed with the only assignments you may complete to raise your grade.  I strongly recommend you complete these assignments.  

3. Q4 will be pass/fail. It is in your best interest to do all 4th quarter work because you will see the information on the final exam  

4. Assignments issued starting on April 13th will be due at the end of each week to be considered on time.  Your final deadline will be the following Monday. So for example, the assignment will be assigned Monday 4/13 and due Friday 4/17.  Your final deadline is Monday 4/20.  

5. Attendance is taken everyday using the Daily Check-Ins which will appear daily in the classwork feed.. Only those questions turned in on the day it’s assigned will be counted for attendance for that day.  It should only take you a couple of minutes to answer.

6.  The agenda for the day will be posted as I normally posted them in the past.  Please don’t forget to scroll down if you can’t find the previous day's announcement at the top.

This week, we will be working on getting everything set up across the district, and we will begin for real next Monday, 4/13/20. This will be a time of learning to navigate through this new procedure but, we are all in this together and will get through it!

If you have issues, please contact me ASAP so we can figure those things out.  Contact me at with any questions you might have.
