Ms. Caitlin Gallion
Welcome to Health!
My name is Ms. Gallion and I'm so excited for my first year here at C.C. Griffin as both a health teacher and athletic trainer! I have recently relocated from Northwest Arkansas, where I was a 7th-12th grade athletic trainer, as well as a CTE Sports Medicine teacher for the past 4 years.
I look forward to working with your student both in the classroom and during athletics! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me. The best way is by email email@example.com, or you can leave a message on my voicemail.
****Most all of our work for our Health course is completed on our online program Canvas. If a student is absent, does not complete/submit an assignment in class, or does not earn a decent grade they are allowed to submit work late or resubmit work with no late penalty up until a few days before final grades are due for report cards. The final due date will be announced and shared with the class frequently, this quarter's is OCTOBER 25th, 2019 at 5:00 pm. Any work turned in before this date will still be given credit based on the value of the work itself. After this date no grades can be changed. You can check your child's assignment grades on Canvas by asking them to login from home at anytime, or through the Parent Portal on Powerschool. Powerschool grades are weighted and should be considered the most accurate average for your student. Grades are automatically synced to Powerschool from Canvas and I will update grades at least weekly if not more often.
6th Grade A: 9:10-9:55
6th Grade B: 9:58-10:43
7th Grade A: 12:08-12:53
7th Grade B: 12:56-1:41

We use a lot of technology in my class! Almost every class we will be using a laptop. In our Health class we will be using the program Canvas to complete assignments, have discussions and complete quizzes/tests. All of the assignments on canvas can be accessed at any time as long as the student has internet access.Students can access my course on Canvas at any point by clicking on the Canvas Icon on the school homepage. If a student is missing work on canvas they can still complete and submit it through canvas. Please continue to check the parent portal for your child's current grade.
