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.
HomeworkStudents typically will not receive homework assignments unless they need to complete assignments from class, study for tests, or complete projects. I encourage students to use their time outside of the classroom reading, writing, reviewing information, and participating in some form of physical activity for overall wellness.
GradesIt 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); what is? (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 59-50If your student has not met a score of 70% or better on a graded assignment, it should be redone. I give students several chances on most assignments to reach a score of 70% with your help at home. If a student scores a 70% on an assessment test, and would like to raise their overall grade they may redo the assignment once. The highest score a student may receive on any redone assignment is a 90%.
Report Cards-Family AccessElementary/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 your school office about Family Access or learn more here.
