Classroom News

  • Honors:  Honors students will have one outside reading assignment each 9 weeks along with a project.  More information will be given in class. 
    Homework:  Homework may be given out once a week.  Students are required to complete work individually and have it checked by a parent.  I will be following the district policy regarding late work.
    SSR:  Every Friday will be Sustained Silent Reading for 15-20 minutes.  Students are required to have a book (novel) on level to read in class.  Random book checks and grades will be given.  The school library is open before and after school and during lunch for students to check out books.  
    STAAR:  7th grade students will be taking 3 STAAR tests this year for writing, reading, and math.  More information about these will be sent out at a later date.  Students who do not pass these tests will be required in 8th grade to take a remedial STAAR class instead of an elective. 
    Tardies:  Students who are tardy to class will be a  given a referral to the office after the 4th tardy and beyond.  Students will serve a lunch detention.  Please see the handbook for more information.  I require students to be in their chair by the time the bell rings.  If a student is not in their seat, they are considered tardy.
    Absences:  It is the student's responsibility to collect missed work. They must see me the day they return to school to receive notes and class work.  If a student is absent or going to be absent, please email me as soon as possible so I can gather work together.
