  • There will be approximately two to three quizzes per chapter. Please reference the middle school calendar for all dates. 
  • Quizzes can be corrected for half credit back but must be returned the following day in order to receive that credit. 
  • There are no retakes on Unit Tests. Please come prepared. All tests will be sent home for a signature and students must correct all mistakes. YOU CANNOT EARN POINTS BACK ON TEST CORRECTIONS. YOU GET WHAT YOU GET. 
  • Student grades are weighted. The grading program mathematically computes your child's grade, based on the following weights: 

TESTS: 40%



ENGAGEMENT: 10% (class participation, meeting with me, group participation. Consider this FREE EXTRA CREDIT!)


Homework has three symbols in the grade books.

  1. 100% means they correctly did all their problems.
  2. 88% means that a student got two wrong or less. If a child receives an 88%, they are able to make as many corrections as they want until they receive a 100%, but it is not required.  Corrections should be done when they receive the assignment back. They are not accepted after the Unit Test. 
  3. 0% means that the student had more than 2 wrong, and corrections are mandatory. Do not panic when you see a 0. It is simply a symbol that they need to make corrections and owe work. 
Every middle school student should have the following for every class:
  1. Pencil
  2. Red pen
  3. Whiteboard Marker (please label)
  4. Binder
  5. Looseleaf
  6. Calculator (please label)
  7. Textbook (6th only)

Textbooks are only used in sixth grade. They are able to leave their textbooks in my classroom.
