Lakewood High School's Internet Agreement

New Rule from Pinellas County:

  1. You can only go to the Internet site that is specified by Mr. Thompson.
  2. A seating chart must be made (So that the user of a particular computer at a particular time, can be traced).
    • So do not switch seats or computers, instead:
    • Tell Mr. Thompson about any problems being experienced and let him fix it.

Parents, you can see your child's grades on
 Parent Connect.
  • Parents Please Note:  In Ascend, each student goes at their own pace, so the number of items your child has done may not match the number of headings in the markbook.

    Essay 24: 
Cleaner Cars
American car manufacturers will now have until 2016 to produce cars that give 35.5 miles per gallon on average (small cars 40, trucks 30), while emitting one third as much greenhouse gasses as at present.  This will cause the average cost of cars to rise by $1,300.  What are the advantages and disadvantages of this move?  Do you support it?

  • Good Class.
