Welcome to my website!
A Little About Mrs. Lemons
I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Education from the University of New Mexico. I am a New Mexico state licensed teacher in English, PE, and Health and am a Nationally Board Certified Teacher.
I previously taught Language Arts at Eisenhower Middle School and V. Sue Cleveland High School. I have also coached Girls’ Basketball and Track and Field at various middle and high schools.
I currently teach High School PE at ASK. I am also the Achievement Coach in which I oversee several programs including but not limited to Academic Probation, Friday Edgenuity School, Naviance, and many other graduation and college/career readiness initiatives.
I have a wonderful husband and two beautiful boys that I love dearly and am very active with. I love to read, do art, assemble puzzles, and watch and participate in various sports.
Let’s get to it
To navigate, locate your class on the menu bar at the right. Click on the link to the page for your class.
To get you started, outlined below are some basics:
You will not receive a quarter grade for this class as it is an Edgenuity online course that will give a final grade at the end of the semester. You will also be required to submit a weekly fitness log that will account for 20% of the semester grade. I generally grade over the week-end so your grades in PowerSchool should be current as of Monday afternoon. Please keep all graded work just in case I make an error in my grade book.
Your Edgenuity course grades will be in the Edgenuity program in which you can check your grade for the two courses at any time. Your log grades will be entered into the PowerSchool grade book each week. Your semester grade totals will be weighted accordingly:
Lifetime Fitness Edgenuity Course 40%
Healthy Living Edgenuity Course 40%
Fitness Logs 20%
The grading scale will follow the ASK Academy standards:
100% - 96% = A+
95% - 90% = A
89% - 80% = B
79% - 70% = C
<69% = NC
The Edgenuity program generates grades for each scholar as well as provides progress made as scholars do their work. Progress reports will be sent every 1-2 weeks to provide an update on the classes. However, you can login at any time to check your scholar's grades and/or progress. Additionally, if the class is not completed by the end of the semester deadline, your scholar will receive an NC for the PE credit and will have to do credit recovery to earn the credit needed to meet graduation requirements.
Please check PowerSchool regularly for your scholar’s grades and assignments. If the assignment in the grade book has a blank spot, that means the grade has not been entered yet. If there is a “0” and an orange box present, that means the scholar has received a zero for the assignment because they have not turned the assignment in for credit. If you have questions regarding your scholar’s grades, please email me. This will mostly pertain to fitness logs.
Late Work Policy
Unless specified, all assignments are due at the beginning of class. Assignments are due on the designated date and are posted on the course webpage. If you have a due date conflict, it is your responsibility to negotiate an alternative submission date. However, if you are ill on the day an assignment is due, I expect you to e-mail it to me by 4:00 p.m. if you want full credit. I will accept late assignments up to one week after the due date; however, the maximum credit a late assignment can receive is 50%. Credit will not be available after one week; however, you may still be required to submit the assignment.
Merriam-Webster's Dictionary defines plagiarism as: "to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own; use (another's production) without crediting the source." Your work must be entirely your own unless you have permission to collaborate. If you plagiarize by submitting undocumented work written by another person, you have violated important academic tenets. You will automatically receive a zero for the assignment and a referral. Please note that if you work with another person on an assignment and your responses are essentially the same but in different words, that too, constitutes plagiarism.
You can e-mail me (see link in upper right hand corner) or you can leave a message with Ms. Mary Lou at the front office. I will get back to you as soon as I can.
