Grading Information

With the exception of Language Arts, all graded assignments are weighted as follows:  Tests 40%, quizzes 20%, projects 15%, homework 10%, classwork 10%, copybooks 5%. I do not grade all homework, but I do collect it randomly to hold the students accountable for completing their work. 

In Language Arts, the grading scale is as follows:  Tests 40%, spelling 20%, quizzes 15%, homework 10%, classwork 10%, copybooks 5%.  I send home everything I grade in the weekly test folders so that parents are well-informed. In the case of projects which need to meet certain criteria, I will send the rubric home even if the project is on display at school.  Copybook grades are written directly in the copybooks with my comments.  If you have any questions about my grading policies, please feel free to contact me.

Classroom Expectations

Be respectful - Treat everyone in the class exactly how you wish to be treated.

Be prepared - Bring all materials and completed assignments to class.

Be enthusiastic - Have a positive attitude and a desire to learn. 

Be prayerful - Offer your words, thoughts, deeds, and accomplishments to God! He loves you!

Be loving - Jesus said, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’"

 

Discipline Policy

When classroom expectations are not being met, the following consequences will occur:

1. I will give the student a verbal warning.

2. After a verbal warning, I will write a comment in the homework pad that must be signed by the parent. Three written comments in one trimester will result in an after school detention.

3. If the negative behavior continues, I will contact a parent through phone or email.

 

Have a week! Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions or concerns.

In Christ's love,

Ms. Berge
