Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How do I know what grade my child has in your class?
A: The grades will be posted on Zangle every two weeks. If for some reason you are unable to view the grades online you can email me at and I will send you a copy of your child’s grade. Or you can send in a note and I can send home a hard copy the following day.

Q: How do I know what my child has for homework?
A: Everyday your child should be copying his/her homework down from the whiteboard into their assignment notebook. Please do not rely on the homework to be posted on the internet.

Q: How will I know when my child has a test or project coming up? A: All test and project due dates are posted on the whiteboard and it is your child’s responsibility to copy it down into their assignment notebook.

Q: How are grades weighted in your class?
A: Assessment (Test and Quizzes) are worth 80% and Assignments (Homework and Class Work) are 20% *

Q: Do you give homework on the weekends?
A: Yes, I give homework on the weekends. However, if your child is going to have homework over the weekend they will know on Thursday and it will be due on Monday; if they are told on Friday that they have homework over the weekend it is due Tuesday (in addition to Monday night’s homework).

Q: What is your policy on late work?
A: Late work will only be accepted for half credit the day after the assignment is due. Unless it is late because of an excused absence, then they have however many days they were absent, to make it up. I will not remind them to turn in late/absent work.

Q: What are your classroom rules?
A: Be respectful to everyone and everything. Have fun learning.

Q: How long does it take for my child’s work to be returned with a grade? A: It depends on the assignment, but allow at least 4 school days.

Q: How can my child earn extra credit?
A: Extra credit opportunities are given practically every week. Students will be told in class how to extend an assignment for extra credit points. Students can earn extra credit by having superb behavior and excellent participation. Also they can earn 5 extra credit points or a homework pass by bringing in the extra credit supplies, which are used for the entire class (paper towels, facial tissue, hand sanitizer, notebook paper, colorful dry erase markers and gluesticks).

Q: How can I help my child succeed?
A: Check his/her work daily for completion, spelling & grammar errors, and organization. Encourage your child to tell you about what they are learning and what they find challenging. Provide your child with opportunities to read books/magazines/graphic novels/comic books of interest to them. Monitor your child’s grades—know when they have tests/projects/assignments and follow-up by asking to see their graded work.
