6th Grade Late Work Policy

Greetings!

This year we are experiencing an unusually large volume of late work. Because of this, we would like to clarify our late work policy. Since most of our learning and practice takes place in the classroom, our expectation is that students complete their work and turn it in on time. We understand that sometimes this is not possible, so we will accept work up to a week late (7 days). Students will receive a 1/2 point deduction for each day that the work is late out of our 4 point scale.

If a student is absent due to illness, etc., we will, of course, make allowances and adjustments to our policy.

Thanks for your support and understanding in this matter.

Sincerely,

The 6th GradeĀ  Team

Plagiarism

We have had a few students submit written work that was copied and pasted from websites, etc. In this day and age, when everything is published and made public via the internet, it can be quite tempting to copy and paste the work of others.

We have had a discussion with the students about how they need to publish their own work and not the work of others. Some students had their work returned to them to rewrite in their own words. Please let us know if you have questions or concerns regarding this matter.

Thank you,

The 6th Grade Team

Welcome Back!

Happy New Year! We are excited to get back to work and hope that students and families had a restful holiday. It would be helpful if families would check in with students in regard to school supplies and binder organization. Paper may be low, pencils may be gone, etc.
