Homework will be given almost EVERY night of the week and will be due the following day. At the beginning of the trimester, you have a 100 as your homework grade. Each assignment that you do not complete will lower that score by 5 points. You will get a homework grade each month of the trimester. Homework is worth 10% of your overall grade. I will NOT accept late submissions or work that you completed but forgot at home. Only work that is in class on the due date will be graded.
All tests and quizzes will be announced DAYS in advance to give you enough time to prepare. The date of the assessment may change due to unforeseen circumstances. Most assessments will be “in-class”, but some may be “open-book” or “take-home”. Tests are worth 50% and quizzes are worth 30% of your overall grade. Extra credit will be given periodically throughout the trimester. I will NOT give any “extra” extra credit to a student.
When an absence(s) occurs, it is your responsibility to get ALL missed work on the day you return to school. You have one school day for every day that you are absent to make up assignments. [Ex: If you are absent Monday, you are to get your missed work on Tuesday when you return to school. Then, you must hand in that work by Wednesday when we meet for class that day.] If this work is not given in on time, you will not receive credit for it.
First offense: You will lose it for a DAY.
Second offense: You will lose it for a WEEK.
Third offense: You will lose it for a MONTH.
*After the third offense, the chrome book will be confiscated.*
Please join Remind by using the class code that was sent home with your child the first week of school. I will be sending messages out regarding your child's homework, projects, assignments, assessments, and any other events that will be taking place both in and outside of school. Since it is your child's last year in School 5 there will be a lot of activities throughout the year that we would love for everyone to take part in!
