__Parent Information__

- Study Hall is optional and offered to all middle school students. Sixth graders can choose to sign up for study hall during homeroom on Monday 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, check Student Portal 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.

__Policies
and Procedures__

__Daily Math and Algebra supplies__:

Math journal (composition book), math binder, math textbook, calculator, agenda, pencil pouch containing 2 sharpened pencils, red pen and a highlighter.

__Homework Policy:__

Math/Algebra homework will be graded **DAILY**. 5 points will be given for 100% completion (all questions answered *with effort *and* work shown*). If homework is incomplete, students will receive a zero in grade book.

__Extra Credit:__

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

__Late Work:__

**Late homework is not accepted for a grade. **Math homework is due at the beginning of math class. Students who forgot to complete the work, forgot the homework in their locker or who do not have it with them in class will receive a "missing" score in the grade book which counts as a zero.** **

__Absent Work:__ ** **

Students will have the same number of days to complete work after an absence as the days they were absent. I encourage students to use the homework calendar to be sure they complete all homework. It is the students responsibility to seek out the teacher for any handouts that were given during an absence.

__Test Corrections:__

Students that score **below 70%** on a quiz or test have an **option** to complete test corrections and earn up to half of the missed points back, **up to a revised grade of 70%**. Students must follow every step of the test correction policy within 2 days after the original quiz/test is returned (see attached file below).
