IMPORTANT INFO - STUDENTS & PARENTS - PLEASE READ! 1) All projects are designed to be completed in class.
2) Struggling students who are making a reasonable effort can come in before school at 7: 20 every day or after school until 3:00PM if extra time or help is needed. Students should talk to me first, at least a day in advance to ensure that I do not have any meetings or prior coaching/commitments that would make me unavailable. Students should also email me the night before to confirm that they are coming in the morning and to guarantee that I will be there.
3) The related arts classes are on a 7 week schedule while the rest of the school is on a 12 week (trimester) schedule. Therefore, official progress reports are not issued from the related arts classes. Please talk to your son or daughter about the status of their work. In middle school, students are expected assume more responsibility for their learning. You can always email me if you have any specific questions or concerns.
4) When the rotation ends, our grades are due at the district office so it is important that all work is completed on time by the given due dates .
Late work is subject to a 15% penalty per day. Projects that are not turned in will receive a grade of "0" until they are received and then only partial credit will be given afterwards. Grades will not be changed after the rotation ends. At the middle school level, students are expected to discuss any concerns with their teacher to help develop self advocacy skills. Parents will receive a notification if a student's grade drops below "C".
