Welcome to the 2022-2203 school year.  I an honored to be one of your child’s 8th grade teachers. We have an exciting year ahead of us.   We will be studying and working on many new and exciting things this year.  We will do several types of graded activities each grading period in order to reach your child’s individual learning style.  We have very high expectations for your child and will do all that we can to ensure your child reaches those expectations.

Students will receive teacher observation each day to ensure that they are on task and understanding the information and following directions.  Student grades will be based on various activities and assignments in each class.  The following procedure will be used to record student progress:

All grades will be recorded in the grade book and in PowerTeacher.  Columns will be dated and labeled to indicate the type and name of the assessment.  Parents are able to access grades from home by using ParentPortal.
