Classroom Rule: Respect
Homework & Grades: Homework is a construction of knowledge that is seen as a valuable resource for teaching. Homework is assigned for a multitude of reasons:
- To see how well students understand lessons.It provides a purpose and is alligned with the goal of the lesson.
- To help students develope study habits, essential problem-solving skills, time management, and task endurance.
- To show parents what is being learned in school.
Homework is posted daily on the 7th Grade Peregrine homework site. Assignments are all posted on my board for all content areas.
A student’s average will be determined by a combination of tests, quizzes, projects, class work, homework, and a notebook. Parents and students can access progress through the Community Portal. The Community Portal provides up-to-date information pertaining to student grades, report cards, attendance and discipline. If secondary students and/or parents have not requested access or cannot remember their access information, they should visit http://www.stsd.org/portalaccess. Once access has been acquired, visit http://www.stsd.org/portal to check grades, report cards, attendance and discipline.
MARKING SYSTEM: Students will receive both scholarship and attitude marks from each teacher with whom they have a class. Scholarship marks represent achievement in subject matter. Attitude marks indicate the manner in which students apply themselves and the degree to which students put forth effort.
Scholarship marks will be based on a percentage determination with minimal passing grade of 70%.
GRADING SYSTEM: 93-100 = Outstanding Achievement 85-92 = Above Average Achievement 77-84 = Average Achievement 70-76 = Fair, Improvement Needed, Passing
Below 70 = Subject Failed INC. = No Grade Issued
HONOR ROLL - A student must attain an overall average of 90% in the marking period in all numerical graded subjects with no grade lower than an 85% and no failure in subjects that receive letter grades. Any incomplete appearing on the student’s report card at the time of tabulation will eliminate him/her from honor roll consideration, until the necessary work has been completed to establish a grade.
