Grading Reminders

As we approach the final week of our first trimester, a quick reminder of 4J grading practices that may impact final course grades.  These are similar to our practices that have been in place since last fall.

  • There will be no grade of ‘F’ issued this year.  Instead, students who do not earn a passing grade for a class will not be awarded credit and they will receive a grade of NP (No Pass).  While neither mark earns credit in a class, the use of NP (No Pass) does not have an impact on a student’s GPA (unlike the F).
  • Students/families will have up until the last day of the trimester (December 3rd) to opt to receive a grade of Pass (P) in any course, rather than a letter grade.  This decision must be communicated with the course instructor.  Students and families should consider any impact this may have on post-secondary plans and are encouraged to reach out to the student’s counselor if there are questions.

If there are any questions about the above information, please do not hesitate to reach out to a teacher, counselor, or grade-level administrator.

An Annual Tradition: Project Give

Dear North Eugene High School Students and Families,
Our ASB Executive Student Leadership Team is embarking on our 45th annual Project Give.  Project Give is a fundraiser organized by North Eugene High School ASB Leadership students to help North Eugene families this time of year.  Our start date is December 8th and will run through December 16th.  This year we will again have a competition between 2nd period classes.  We are asking students and staff to bring non-perishable food and/or money to their 2nd period classes.  Points will be assigned by North Eugene ASB representatives after they collect food and money each day. The class that earns the most points at the end of Project Give will be awarded a pizza lunch by North Eugene ASB.  Our goal this year is to help feed 50 of our North Eugene families.
This is how the point system will work:
Large cans/boxes- 5 points (large soup can/cereal box)
Small cans/boxes- 3 points (tuna can/mac “n” cheese box)
Small package food- 1 point (ramen like food)
Money- 5 points for every dollar

Here’s how to donate:
Donate non-perishable food or money in your 2nd period class starting Dec. 8th through Dec. 16th.

Thank you for helping North Eugene families and if you have any questions please email or call Corey Nicholsen at nicholsen@4j.lane.edu541-285-6115.

EOS Student Survey

Over the next few weeks, students will be completing the Equal Opportunity Schools (EOS) survey during a grade-level course like language arts or social studies.  Our partnership with the EOS organization is all about improving access and achievement, and promoting a sense of belonging in our most challenging courses, like IB and College Now classes.  It’s important that students take the time to start and complete the survey.  Think of this as an opportunity for students to share their perspective with us on how our IB and college credit bearing courses are serving them.  This is a great chance to share their thoughts, feelings, and opinions so we can respond and improve our programming.  Please stress with your student how important it is for their voice to be heard in this survey.  Thank you!
