Parents: Friday 2/22/19 was my last day with your child this year. I am being sent home on medical leave until the baby comes. I want to thank you for such a great year with your student! They will be in great hands. Mrs. April Smith will take over until Spring Break, and Mrs. Renee Fleming will finish out the year after testing.
DOL will begin to be given weekly to help supplement student writing ability. Students must make corrections to each sentence (Capitalization, Punctuation, usage, spelling, etc.) as well as lable the type of sentence and type of clauses used in each sentence. Students are responsible for finishing the assigned sentences at home if they did not finish at class. There will be a weekly grade on this.
Common Lit assignments will be done weekly. This is a valuable tool to help us better prepare for the LEAP test.
This can be found at Commonlit.org. You may review previous assignments and view scores after it is graded each Friday.
Students will be given in class time each week as specified on the agenda, but they may begin working on it at home earlier in the week. This will be for a 50 point grade each week based upon the following scale:
76-100%- 50 Points
51-75%- 45 Points
26-50%- 40 Points
0-25%- 35 Points
Please make note of the actual grade your student made by viewing their score on Commonlit.org. This could be reflective of their effort and give an idea of how they may preform on LEAP test.
If it is determined that a student is not trying on the assignment, I reserve the right to give them whatever percentage they make of the 50 point grade.
Ex. if they make a 10% they will recieve a 5/50 for their grade.
