    Behavior and Discipline:

    Student behavior and discipline is an important component of any classroom. Misbehavior can be disruptive to the learning process for all children in the classroom.  Therefore, each child will be held responsible for his or her own behavior.  Please help us teach your child responsibility by also emphasizing the importance of the following rules.

    Classroom Rules

    Daily Grades – 40% of grade

    Daily grades will consist of in-class assignments, simulations, and quizzes.  If your child does not turn in an assignment, it will be indicated with the letters NTN in iNOW.  NTN means “not turned in”.  If you see an assignment marked as EX, the student has been excused from the assignment and the assignment is not averaged into your child’s grade.

    Tests and Projects – 60% of grade

    All tests must be completed during one class block.  All projects are designed to be completed during class time.  If you do not use your time in class wisely, you may have to finish a project outside of class.

     

    I would like to thank you for your support, and I encourage you to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.  This is going to be a great year!
