For Science and Social Studies, 90% of a student’s grade will be determined by a minimum of 4 major tests or assessments.

10% of a student’s grade in Math, Reading, Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies will be determined by classwork, minor quizzes, reports, projects, homework, etc. A minimum of one assignment per subject each week is required for daily grades.

A Few Safety Reminders...

1. Conduct a daily “safety scan” of your classroom each morning as you enter the room. Remove or relocate any items that may create a safety hazard.

2. Always keep floors and walkways clear.

3. Be aware of your surroundings as you walk. Watch for potential slip and trip hazards.
