FAQs

Are there extra credit assignments?
Generally, there will be no extra credit assignments. Students will be busy enough completing the required assignments. It is important to complete all assignments and turn them in on time to receive academic credit. Do not fall behind in your classwork as this will negatively affect your grade.

What do I do when I enter class?
First, read the opening assignment that is posted on the projector screen as you enter the room. Second, get out any required materials and immediately begin the posted assignment. Students are NOT to be socializing when they enter the classroom.

How do I keep from being tardy to class?
All students are expected to be IN THEIR SEATS by the time the FIRST BELL RINGS. If you are having a problem with opening your locker, come to see me before the tardy bell rings and I will attempt to assist you. If another teacher keeps you late after class, ask that teacher for a student pass to bring to my class so that you will not be marked tardy.

How do I make up missed tests after an absence?
See the teacher after returning from an absence to determine if you missed a quiz or test that will need to be rescheduled.

How will I know the assignments I've missed during an absence?
All assignments are posted on this website under either the Homework button. Also, assignments are posted on the classroom assignment wall during the week they were assigned. If you need a hand out there are usually copies located on the far left table by subject.

Are late assignments accepted?
Late assignments are NOT accepted for academic credit unless the student is absent. I allow 1 day for every day a student is absent during the semester to receive full credit. (Please review the Redwood School Policy found in your Assignment Binder). After that the work is considered late and will lose credit over a further 3 day period. After that the work will not be accepted.

How will I know the assignments I've missed during an absence?
All assignments are posted on this website under the Homework button. Also, assignments are posted on the classroom assignment wall during the week they were assigned. Students are instructed to always write down their assignments in their assignment notebooks.
