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.
Students are given time in class to finish most assignments. Homework will not be a nightly occurrence. You can check my calendar on my website to see what we are learning and completing daily in class.

Grade Categories and Weighting
Percentage of overall grade
Work assigned in class is important for learning and to determine student progress. Students are expected to complete ALL major assignments to standard, even if they turn in the work late or need to re-do the work.
Late work will be accepted, and the grade may be reduced to reflect poor work habits. Work turned in on time and demonstrating full effort may be re-done for up to full credit. In order to re-do part or all of a major assignment, the student must:
- Talk with the teacher to understand what needs to be done for re-do.
- Demonstrate effort to improve or re-learn the material (determined by the teacher).
- Complete the revised work within 1 week (or other agreed upon deadline) of receiving the original graded work.
Letter grades are distributed between each of the five letter grades. 10% will be given to each letter, for example, an A will equal 100% to 90%, a B will equal 89% to 80%, and so on, to an F, being equal to 59% to 50%. The lowest grade a student can receive will be 50% as per an honest effort has been made as deemed by the teacher. A student may receive a score of 0% if no effort has been made, or in cases of cheating, plagiarism, etc..
Report Cards - Family Access
Secondary school report cards are available at the end of each grading period and students are assessed in accordance with Oak Harbor Public Schools board policy. Parents can keep tabs on their children's progress and their problems by checking online in Family Access, a secure system that also allows you to check attendance and more. Account information is provided to each family by the school office at the start of the school year. Talk to the school office about Family Access or learn more here.
