Classroom information

Welcome to Seventh Grade! We are going to have a great year together.  My main objective is to create a secure, comfortable learning environment in which each of you are able to freely participate in every aspect of daily classroom activities and instruction.  While I will do all that I can to help you, your commitment is required to make learning possible. It is your responsibility to work hard and take pride in your own individual work.  Most importantly, come to me for help whenever necessary.  Do not be shy about this!  I look forward to a wonderful year with you.

Student Responsibilities:

  • Respect your self and others
  • Follow Directions
  • Use Appropriate Language
  • Be Responsible for Your Learning

Grading:
Grading is done through a point system that will be converted to a percent.  Each student’s grade will be based on participation, tests/quizzes, outside reading, homework, and projects.  The grading scale is as follows…

A=90-100%

B=80-89%

C=70-79%

D=60-69%

F="59%" or below

Homework:
Homework plays an integral role in a child's education.  It serves as the practice and reinforcement of skills and concepts covered in class. Your child will receive homework each night.  Please refer to the 7B calendar for a daily list of assignments. Homework will be written on the board.  All students are required to keep an assignment notebook.

Late Work:
Since helping students learn and increase responsible behavior is an important objective this year, I am insisting that assignments be turned in when due. Assignments turned in 1 day late will receive half credit. Assignments turned in after that will receive a zero. All late assignments are still expected to be completed.
If for some reason your child is unable to turn in his/her work on time, I will accept it for full credit the next day only if the child brings in a written note from his/her parent.  If it is an issue with a computer problem, please remember that students have the option of emailing assignments to the teacher to prevent the possibility of losing points. 

Absences:
Absentee work will be given to the child when he/she returns to school.  As stated in the school-wide assignment notebook; when a student is absent from school, he/she will be given the same number of days to make up daily assignments.


Portfolios:
Portfolios are an excellent way to organize work and monitor progress.  Any and all work from the entire quarter will be kept in this folder.  Students are encouraged to bring their portfolios home to share, but I do ask that they are returned the next day.
