2018-19 Comet Period


Comet Games will take place every Wednesday

  • We will still be utilizing for the games.

    • A link to that day’s game will be sent out via email each Wednesday at the start of the period.

  • Please project the game onto your screen/board and work together as a Comet Period to answer all of the questions. All chromebooks should be closed.

  • Once you have completed that day’s game, please input the score into the comet period scoring spreadsheet

  • Each Comet Period’s 2 lowest scores will be dropped at the end of the semester to account for staff absences and various club/class meetings.

  • The class with the highest score at the end of each semester will receive an award. We are working with student council to finalize what that will be.
