    There will be additional HW and test questions available with each assessment for extra credit.

  • 22. All of my grades are recorded both in my grade book, and on the computer grade book program: PowerSchool.  Students may know their averages upon request. Parents and students may also access their grades at any time using the PowerSchool Portal.
    A folder will be maintained in the classroom for each student.  Disciplinary actions (e.g. referrals), and parent contact information will be kept in those folders.
    Other means of recording and reporting student grades and progress include interim progress reports, quarterly report cards, teacher’s discipline log, periodic student and teacher conferences, teacher and parent conferences, notes home, and telephone calls to parents (positive and negative).
    C. Recording Student Progress
  • 23. Make-Up Policies
    It is the student’s responsibility to gather all make-up work and complete it in a timely manner (within 5 days of his/her return to school). 
    Students are allowed to make up work from excused absences only. 
    Generally tests and quizzes that need to be made up will not be done during class time.  Please arrange to make up tests or quizzes after 2:00 pm or during 2nd period if at all possible.
  • 24. Extra Assistance
    Available by appointment, daily—2nd period or after school.
    It is the student’s responsibility to let me know if he/she needs to come for extra help. 
    It is very important that a student does not fall behind, because it is often very difficult to catch up.  Please ask for help before you get behind.
  • 25. Attendance and Tardy Policies:
    Each student is expected to be in class every day on time! 
    Attendance and tardy policies are listed and explained in the student agenda book.  (“ON TIME” means in your seat, ready to start when the bell rings.  It does NOT mean running into the room as the bell is ringing!)
    If a student is not in his/her seat when the bell rings, they will be required to pick-up and fill out their own tardy slip and return to me immediately.
    Tardy slips are turned in to administrators daily, and punishment will be followed through according to school procedure.
    Refusal to fill out and sign a tardy slip results in immediate disciplinary action.
  • 26. Communication with Parents
    Parents can contact me at any time via:
    Phone Call: 756-2350
    Parents are informed via:
    Interim Progress Reports
    Report Cards
