State and Local Assessments
Any incomplete assignments must be handed in the following day or the final grade will be a zero. Parents will be notified if incompletes are not made up.
Assignments are copied each morning in student planners. Parents, please initial homework and planners after completion.
Tests in the various curriculum areas will be taken from notes, textbook material, handouts and discussions in class.
I strongly recommend that each student set aside time for regular review of content area notes and binder material.
Students will be given adequate notice on larger unit exams. Smaller “pop” quizzes will also be given on a regular basis.
Comments are always welcome!
Students are to return the folder with its contents each Monday.
Please jot down an e-mail address where you can be reached on the form on the back table.

In addition to individual notebooks, students will utilize a curriculum binder to organize class notes and related worksheets.
