Students will be held to the expectations detailed in the Summit Ridge Student Agenda. Cell phones must be turned off and left in your locker or at home. 


If students miss school, it is their responsibility to see what they've missed. Check our class calendar. If you click on the event, you will find a description of the day and any resources or documents if they are able to be posted. Students can absolutely come to see me during access or after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays after they've checked the website, if they have questions or need help. 

Late Work

Work turned in one day late will receive 70% credit and 50% credit after two days. Late work may only be turned in until the end of the unit; after that, it will not be accepted. 

Extra Help

Teachers are available for extra help on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:45-3:30. I can also be contacted by email. I love when students email to take responsibility for their own learning! 

Grade Book

We do our best to update the grade book in a timely manner. My grade book will definitely be updated weekly. If an assignment is blank, it means it hasn't been graded.  A zero indicates they didn't turn in an assignment by the end of the unit and will not receive credit. "Missing" means the assignment is missing but can be turned in for partial credit. 

I'm a Level Google Certified Educator, which means I have the knowledge and skills to implement technology in the classroom to enhance student learning.
