Grades are calculated on a weighted category system:
* 40% = Tests
* 35% = Quizzes
* 25% = Homework/classwork
Tips for success:
*Complete assignments the night they are assigned. Even though you will see me every other day, homework can pile up in other classes.
*It is the student’s responsibility to collect absent work when you return to school. This
may be done during study hall, before school, or by checking your Google classroom. You have 1 day for each day absent to complete the work, this includes tests and quizzes. There is no
extension on projects that were previously assigned. They are due the day you return from
*Check Power School. Grades will be updated once a week. All teachers are required to update
grades weekly, but not on a certain day. Typically, grades will be updated after several
assignments have been graded.
*Use your time wisely, during class and study hall. If you have any time available, use it to
complete assignments, read, etc. Social talking is not suggested during this time.
Looking for homework, assignments, class notes, etc...Check Google classroom.
