             Grades & Grading
• We believe that as fifth & sixth graders,
  students must be responsible for their
  materials and assignments.
• If a student chooses not to turn in an
  assignment when it is due, percentage points
  may be deducted for late work as outlined in
  each individual teacher’s syllabus. A syllabus
  is distributed at the start of the year.
• Assignments turned in one day late will
  receive a maximum score of 85%.
  Assignments turned in two days late will
  receive a maximum score of 70%. Per
  teacher’s syllabus, assignments turned in
  after the extension may receive a zero.



                   Free powerpoint template: www.brainybetty.com
                Grades & Grading
• Students will receive a Grade Report every six weeks.

  passing grade. Note: The SPOT class is graded on a
  Pass/Fail basis.

  six weeks (Excellent, Satisfactory, Needs Improvement, Unsatisfactory).
• Academic progress is evaluated via progress reports on
  the third week of each six weeks grading period.
