For March 30-April 3, your assignment is to write a general essay that could be used in many scholarship applications.  For NTI assignment purposes, please write or type a 1 ½ -2 page essay on why you should be the recipient of a scholarship, your immediate plans after graduation, and your goals for the next 5 years.


March 16-27: *COVID-19 Assignment:  Log into Today’s Class using your usual information and complete at least 3 lessons (D Class-Electrical—you only have two remaining unless you are behind.)  You may use any notes that you take over this on your final and you can write the quiz questions and answers in your notes as well.  You must score at least a 60 for the lesson to count and you can retake it as many times as you’d like (this setting has been enabled).  If you score over a 60 the first time, but would like a higher score, you can email Mr. Graves and he will reset it ONLY one time. If you complete all remaining Today’s Class lessons, you will be able to spend the remainder of the year in the shop; so please take advantage of this opportunity to complete these lessons.
