Transcript of PreK-Gr. 5 Curriculum Night

Let the Children Come to Me
Heavenly Father, giver of all good gifts, look with love on the students in our school community. Bless their lives and help them reflect on Christ's love for all people. Fill them with your love, and let them bring your light into our community. Give them the strength to serve all those in need. Give them the courage to stand strong for what is right, and the wisdom to discover your goodness in all things. Father, we give you praise and glory as we ask this through Christ our Lord, in the love of your Spirit, now and forever. Amen
Opening Prayer

Grading with the Purpose for Continuous Improvement
Grades will be entered weekly or bi-weekly in the case of projects by teachers.
All work will be assessed either by the teacher or by the student as a class grades work together.
Teachers will decided which grades are entered into PowerSchool based on skills being taught and assessed.
Students will not grade other students work.
Most work will be graded so students have feedback on what they have completed and so they have an idea of where they are succeeding and where they need to practice a bit harder.
Students should assume that all work will be for a grade.
Participation and completion grades only will not be put into PowerSchool as independent grades.
These grades may make up a category in a rubric, but will not be stand alone grades.
a. 1 day late = drops one letter grade ie., a perfect grade of 100% drops to an 89%

b. 2 days late = drops by two letter grades; ie., a perfect grade of a 100% drops to a 79%

c. 3 days late = drops by three letter grades; ie., a perfect grade of a 100% drops to a 69%

d. 4 days late = drops by four letter grades; ie., a perfect grade of a 100% drops to a 59%

e. 5 days late = 0

This policy will be enforced this year to help our children learn how to meet deadlines. It is an important skill to learn to be successful in Middle School, High School, College, and the workforce. Sometimes, we can't meet deadlines because of circumstances and have to take the consequence, at least these consequences do not cause complete failure in a class unless the behavior is repetitive.
