40% Tests

30% Quizzes

20% Projects, Activities, Daily Work

10% Homework

  • When a student misses an assignment, that assignment must be turned in within the week. When turned in within the week due, 10% will be taken off of the grade for that assignment.

  • When the assignment is not turned in within the first week, it is marked as an 0 in gradebook.

  • Once the assignment becomes an “0”, it cannot be changed.

  • An “M” is considered a zero and can remain an “M” for the duration of the trimester. This shows both parents and teachers why grades may become lowered due to missing assignments.

  • An “E” for excused may be used in instances where the student was excused from an absence and missed a Science Lab or an Art project that would be impossible to make up. Using an “E” will excuse the student from the assignment without affecting the grade.
