Student Led Conference Forms went home today.  Students will present their grade reflection and self-assessment over the weekend.  Please look out for the conference sign up sheet on Monday morning!

Parent Information:   
  • Study Hall is optional and offered to all middle school students:  
    • Students can sign up during homeroom on Tuesday and Thursday mornings (only 15 students are allowed to attend per day);
    • Study Hall takes place during lunch and recess;
    • Student who wish to partake will get a lunch and bring it up to their homeroom;
    • This is a time to work on homework, ask the teacher questions and seek out additional help. In the event of an absence, this is a good time to get caught up on work that was missed.

Class Participation

I expect you to be involved in class at all times.  This includes independent work, partner work, group work, whole class discussion, or instruction time. Group work is a major part of this class and I expect you to work cooperatively within your group.

Grading Policy

Your grades will be given in the following categories:

  • Assignments (30%)
    • Any assignments completed in class (scavenger hunts, task cards, reviews), homework analysis (collected for a grade), POM (Problem of the Month), center work (1/week), and anything else that is not listed below.
  • Homework/Online      (10%)
    • Assignments completed at home.  Homework is used to reinforce concepts taught in class, as well as teach responsibility.  Homework in your notebook worth 5 points if completed or attempted, with all work shown. 
    • Online (Khan Academy, IXL, etc) is to be completed weekly at home.
  • Assessments      (50%)
    • Quizzes are given approximately once a week to assess concepts taught in class.  You will be given notice and should be studying daily for upcoming quizzes.  
    • Exams will be given at the end of a unit.  You will be given plenty of notice, an in-class review and an opportunity for extra help.   Please contact me any time to discuss extra help.
    • See below for re-take criteria.
  • Participation      (10%)
    • Daily participation is expected of all students. Biweekly grades will be given based on the rubric (see attached).  Additionally, exit or entrance slip completion will count toward participation.  The expectation is that students turn them in so it can be used for my planning.

 Extra Credit:  extra credit points are given to students who bring in their graded, signed assessment the day after they are returned. Extra credit is never given on an individual basis to boost scores to the next letter grade on report cards.   


  • Math homework will be assigned DAILY.  You will receive 5 points for completion of homework.  If is not completed, with all work shown, you will not receive the credit.  Partial credit will be given occasionally.
  • Students must check the ODD number problems in the back of the book before coming to class and be prepared with questions.
  • In addition to homework, you should be studying DAILY.  Study current topics being covered, prepare for upcoming tests or quizzes, or go on the following websites:  IXL, Khan Academy, or Buzz Math.
  • Khan Academy   - Assigned every Monday and is due the following Monday at 7:15am.  Students have one week to complete the assigned skills OR 60 minutes.  Please see the homework calendar for skills assigned and when they are due.  Additionally, skills are assigned directly to khan academy and will show up on the home page.



·         If you know in advance that you will be absent, please talk to me to get the assignments you will miss while gone.

·         With an excused absence, you have as many days as you were gone to make up the work.   For example, if you were absent 1 day, you have 1 night to make up the work.  If you were absent 3 days, you have 3 days to make up the work.

·     All assignments should be handed DIRECTLY to Mrs. Guillaume upon your return.

·         Turning in late work (due to an excused absence)– Put all missing assignments in the clear bin next to the door with your name and class number.

MISSING ASSESSMENTS:  If you are absent on a quiz or test day, it is your responsibility to find a time to take it.  Classtime will not be provided, unless otherwise noted.  You may schedule a time with me during Study Hall, before school or after school.
