Grading

Fine Arts Grades are earned for skills and behavior and are as follows.


E- exceeds expectations/objectives- WOW! Lots of detail, very neat, max effort, quality, and skill.

M- meets expectations/objectives. Nothing more, nothing less, but good quality work.

S- still developing, OR lacks in effort

N- needs improvement, OR little to no effort.


Each Fine Arts Teacher adapts these grades to their specialty.

* I borrowed these images too.

Behavior and Participation Grades

An Exceeds for behavior is a little difficult to judge. However, I expect good behavior (Meets Expections) from all students. I understand that some days are better than others, so I have a "three strikes" policy. If you choose to make a bad choice when you come to Art, I will document that in my grade book and a note will go home for your parents to sign. If the undesired behavior occurs two more times, your behavior grade will drop. Negative choices have negative consequences. IT'S YOUR CHOICE!! Think about it. ;-)

ALWAYS IN NEED OF...
