All students are welcome during tutorials. My tutorials will be Tuesday-Thursday mornings from 7:54 - 8:15 and Tuesday and Thursday afternoons by appointment.

Tests and quizzes should be made up during tutorial times.

Grading Policy

Learning a foreign language involves communicating in different modes; therefore grades will be broken down into those modes. The three modes of communication are Interpesonal, Interpretive and Presentational.


Minor Grades -(50% of 9 Weeks Average)




Major Grades -(50% of 9 Weeks Average)

At least 1-Interpretive



Late Work:

Turn in your work on or before the deadline..

    • Work turned in on time = max 100

    • Work turned in 1 day late = max 70

    • Work turned in 2 to 5 days late = max 50

    • Work turned in 6 or more days late = 0


Check with Google Classroom, if it is possible, finish the work online and speak with me before or after school or email me for more details and other work.

Being absent 1 day allows you 2 days to get all your make-up work done/turned in/etc. If you are absent 2 days, then you will have 3 days to complete and turn-in make-up work, and so on. It is the STUDENTS' RESPONSIBILITY to take care of missing assignments, tests and quizzes. Mrs. Smith will not hunt you down to get it done.
