Parent Information

Study Hall

Study Hall is offered to all 6th and 7th graders on Mondays and Fridays  and all 8th graders on Tuesdays and Fridays during lunch/recess. This is a time for students to eat lunch and work on homework, study for an upcoming assessment, or catch up on absent work. If your child is interested, they must sign up during homeroom on those days. As there are limited slots, student eligibility is VOLUNTARY and based on a first-come, first-serve basis. There will be a Study Hall sign up sheet available during morning Homeroom time on Study Hall days.

Policies and Procedures   

Daily Math/Algebra Supplies:  

  • Blue 5-subject notebook (see file below for how notebook should be set-up)
  • Blue folder
  • GoMath/Algebra 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 or work is missing, students will not receive credit and must complete a missing homework log. 

Every quiz and test must be taken home and signed by a parent and returned to school within 2 days of being returned. This is worth 5 homework points. Late, signed assessments will get 3 points. 


Extra Credit: 

Extra credit is never given on an individual basis to boost scores to the next letter grade on report cards.   

Late Work:                                                                                                                      

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. Students must complete a missing homework log sheet and can earn partial credit for bringing in the homework the following day. 

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 and notes that were missed due to an absence via email or by scheduling a meeting before/after school.

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). 

Grading Policy:

Your grades will be given in the following categories:

  • Tests/Projects (35%)
    • Tests 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. 
    • Every graded test must be reviewed and signed by a parent and returned to teacher within 2 days. 
  • Quizzes (30%)
    • 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. 
    • Every graded quiz must be reviewed and signed by a parent and returned to teacher within 2 days. 
    • Classwork (15%)
      • Any assignments completed in class (worksheets, reviews, etc.), Friday station work (1/week for 6th grade), FAL (Formative Assessment Lesson), Online Work, Exit Slips, projects, etc. 
    • Participation (10%)
      • Daily participation is expected of all students. Biweekly grades will be given based on the rubric (see attached file below).
      • 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.

    • Homework (10%)
      • Assignments are to be completed at home.  Homework is used to reinforce concepts taught in class, as well as teach responsibility.
