STUDENTS who made an F on their second six weeks report card: YOU MATTER and your GRADES MATTER. I am offering a Gunter's Greatest
Improvement Challenge. I will compare your 2nd and 3rd six weeks report cards. The students who make the most improvement will be given a Gunter's
Greatest Improvement Award. I will calculate the points based on how much you improved. For example: If you had 7 F's and brought your grades up to
7 D's, you would earn 7 points..up to 7 C's, you would earn 14 points...up to B's 21 points...one F improved to one A = 4 points. Prizes will be
awarded to the students who earn the most "points" or improved their grades the most. The prizes are  a secret, but they are DEFINITELY worth
playing for. Let me know if you have questions. Ms. Beeman
