Your grade for each quarter will be a combination of the total points you earn on tests, quizzes, homework, and classwork. On average, tests and quizzes will be worth approximately 60% of your grade, homework will be worth approximately 25% of your grade and classwork will be worth approximately 15% of your grade. Term grades will be calculated by adding up the total points earned and dividing by the total possible points.

Progress reports are available using the online system. I strongly encourage you to check your progress on a regular basis.



I am dedicated to your success in this class. For this reason, I will be available after school by appointment. Come prepared with your folder/notebook and any class assignments.



Homework will be given on a daily basis and will be posted on the whiteboard under your class section. It is your responsibility to record assignments in your student agenda and to complete them for the due date. Homework will be collected every day and assessed for both completion and comprehension.  Each homework assignment must be completed in the following manner:


·      Name, date, and class written on the top of each homework

·      Assignment clearly labeled on the top of each homework

·      Completed neatly, legibly, and with enough space



Dates for tests and quizzes will be announced one week in advance. (This does not include pop quizzes.) It is your responsibility to take the test/quiz on the assigned date, unless any new material was missed.



If you are absent from class it is your responsibility to make up any missed work. There is a make-up folder for your class on the back counter. It will contain a sheet prepared with your name on it listing all missed class work, homework, test/quiz announcements, as well as any handouts. When you return from being absent, turn in the previous day’s homework to the basket on the back counter, obtain your make-up packet, and see me to schedule any tests or quizzes that may have been missed.
