Learning Resources

  • By working together, we can create a successful learning environment for students at school and at home. Here are some highlights of what's happening in our classroom.

    Homework

    Any classwork that is not completed can be taken home and turned in the next day.  If your child is absent, I like to have work made up within a week to keep the grade book up to date.  However, if there is a ong term illness or a health plan in place, that will be followed.

    Grades
    It is the responsibility of each student to work towards improvement of his or her grade. Students will receive letter grades in the subject area this year and also an outstanding (O); satisfactory (S); progressing (P); or needs improvement (N) in skill areas of each subject. Here is the scoring reference:
     A    100-90   B    89-80  C    79-70   D    69-60 F    59-50 
     
    If your student has not met a score of 70% or better on a graded assignment or tests, it should be redone. I give students chances on most assignments to reach a score of 70% as I will have them redo if there is class time and if not I may send them home.
     
    Classroom Discipline
    I would encourage parents/guardians to look up Whole Brain Teaching on the internet or watch teaching videos to gain a better understanding of how this management system works in the classroom.  Also, I will be helping students to continue having a positive attitutde when it comes to learning through growth mindset principles.  
     
    Whole Brain Classroom Rules
    1.  Follow directions quickly.
    2.  Raise your hand for permission to speak.
    3.  Raise your hand for permission to leave your seat.
    4.  Make smart choices.
    5.  Keep your dear learning community happy.
