    Welcome to Mrs. Compton’s Class

    • 3 ring binder (1 inch NO 2”)
    • Notebook paper
    • 5 tab dividers:
    • The binders will be kept in the classroom throughout the year.
    • Pens and pencils are needed throughout the year


    Grading Information

    All work falls into one of the following categories:

    • Major Grades: 50% assessments, tests, essays, projects, etc.

    Please check the SCUCISD website for specific district grading policies.



    Parents and students are encouraged to check grades through TxConnect.  Please be aware that TxConnect often has up to a 48-hour delay; therefore, grades may be entered into the grade book, but may not be visible to you.  Check it regularly and/or set up reminders to keep up to date on grades.
