Success in sixth grade is easily accomplished by following these simple rules:
1. BE PREPARED

B. Be on time to class.
C. Students will actively participate in their learning by completing all practice work on time, asking questions, contributing to class discussions, and working collaboratively with their classmates.

*** If NOT prepared for class students will receive lunch intervention that takes place on Tuesday and Thursdays.
2. BE RESPECTFUL
To create a positive learning environment you should treat others the way you would want to be treated. This includes your peers, your teachers, and yourself.
3. GIVE 100% EFFORT
We have high expectations for all of the students and firmly believe that success is a measure of one’s attitude and work ethic.
Grading is done on a point basis. The lowest percentage to receive the given grade is listed below.
A 94% B 84%C 74%D 64%
A- 90% B- 80%C- 70%D- 60%
B+ 87% C+ 77%D+ 67%F 59% and below
All student work will be written in complete sentences (starts with a capital letter, uses punctuation, includes at least a noun and a verb in a complete thought). You will receive half credit for correct answers not written in complete sentences.
Summative Assessment (test scores, big projects, and quizzes) will be 60% of your grade.
Students in violation of the district’s academic dishonesty policy will have 5 school days to complete an alternative assessment. Time and location of the alternative assessment will be set by me. Choosing to not do the alternative assessment will result in a zero.
Formative Assessments or Practice influence 40% of your grade.
Due dates are final. NO late work accepted (unless needed for summative reassessment).
It is your responsibility to turn in your work on time.
