Welcome to the Hopscotch School of Kindess! There have been some tricky flame wars, and this is a place where you can learn to avoid them.
I am principal of this school, but I will need a vice-president to help me manage it and a few teachers; one to teach students in EST Time, and one for Central Time. There will possibly be assistants as well.
Classes will be on Saturdays at different times for different students in different time zones. In the classes you wil learn how to be nice and spread postitivity.
The teacher of a class will tag all their students in one post with that day's lesson.
Clubs and how they work
I, as principal, deem two school clubs already started up: Compliment Club and the Liking Club. These are school-operated clubs who nobody is leader of.
However, you may start your own club that relates to the topic taught at this school, and be leader of it.
Any students here may ask to join a club. The Compliment Club is pretty much what it sounds like: giving people on the forum out of the blue compliments to make their day!
And the Liking Club spam likes accounts on Hopscotch.
homework and grading
At the end of class, your teacher may choose to give you a homework assignment. They will specify on a project you need to make. The project will be due a week from then. At class that day, you will need to turn in your homework by way of providing a link.
Your teacher will decide what grade you get on it and combine that with your behavior in class as well as in other situations on the forum (like being involved in a flame war) to give you your weekly grade.
If you are absent on a day where you must turn in homework, tag your teacher on a post with the link.
If you are, for some reason, unable to attend class, you must tell me why the next time you get a chance. I will choose if your absence is to be excused or unexcused. And unexcused absence can affect your weekly grade.
Becoming a Student
Surprisingly, there is no form for this! You just have to ask to enroll and I'll probably accept you! I would appreciate you explaining your reasons for wanting to join, however.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
