Extra credit is available each week. Extra credit can be found in Google Classroom under the topic Extra Credit. Students must print off or write the questions. They can type or write the answers. One point will be awarded for each correct answer.
Want to keep up with your assignments? Sign up for REMIND. You can receive texts or E-mails about homework assignments, upcoming tests, and other important announcements and information. Both parents and students are encouraged to sign up for Remind. I use this resource frequently. You can also send me a message through remind. Remind is the best way to get in touch with me after school hours. I also have the remind messages posted on the right side of this page.
Everything we do in class will be posted in Google Classroom. My Google Classroom is organized by the Unit of Study and by day. The materials I use in class and assign to students will be posted under the current unit of study and the date. Some assignments are completed within Google Classroom and others are given to students as a handout. Students who are absent can use the Kami extension to complete the assignments or print out the handouts and complete the work. I also keep a copy of the handouts for the students to give to them when they return.
Tutoring is available Monday mornings from 7:30 - 8:00. I will always be here at 7:30 on Monday mornings. I am also available other mornings during the week from 7:30 to 8:00. If your child is going to come on any other day besides Monday, I need 24 hours notice to make sure I am there.
I am also available for tutoring during lunch on the days we are not assigned lunchroom duty. Students are more than welcome to eat lunch in my room get help or work on assignments they have missed due to absences.
Missing assignments will not be accepted after I have graded, returned and gone over th assignment. Students who are absent should complete the work they missed within 3 days of returning to school. Students need to make arrangements to come in early or do a working lunch to make up assignments like Brain pops and videos. Classtime will not be given to complete make-up work.
Students and parents should check infinite campus often to see if there are any missing grades.
Per ECMS policy, retests will not be given. Students need to make sure that they are studying their warm-up activities and notes daily so that they are prepared for their tests. Study guides will be given prior to most test to help focus the student studying.
