Grading is not about a number; but instead, is an assessment of what the student learned about the curriculum being taught.
Formative Assessments: 50%
The average of all Formative Assessments will be counted as 50% of your six weeks grade.
 Formal Assessments: (CBAs, STAAR)
 Informal Assessments: (Weekly Exams, PreTests, Ongoing Assessments, Cumulative Tests).
Tests will fall every Friday.
Summative Assessments: 50%
 Daily Work: (Participation, Quizzes, Classwork, WarmUps, Exit Slips, Drills, Problem of the Day, and other small assignments)
 Homework
The average of all daily work [Summative Assessments] (Drills/DCR, homework, and assignments) will be counted as 50% of your six weeks grade.
Make Up/ Late Work will have a 50% of the value of the assignment (unless a legitimate illness).

Bathroom Policy:
If you have to go to the bathroom, you must raise your hand and ask to do so. You must sign the Sign In/Sign Out notebook and get a pass before you leave the room (one boy and one girl at a time). You will not be allowed to leave the room during the first 10 minutes or last 10 minutes of a period. You will not be allowed to leave during the 1^{st} and 6^{th} periods.
Code of Conduct:
1. Be Responsible
2. Be Respectful
3. Be Ready to Learn
4. Be Honest
Students will ask for help when needed, do their own work, and always tell the truth.
——– Make your education a top priority.———
I firmly believe that most people can be successful in school and that the amount of hard work, dedication, and sacrifice is what separates those who are successful from those who are not.
If you are absent, you want to get the assignments and notes as fast as you can. If you can, call your classmates and ask them for the assignments. If you can’t call anyone, you should ask your classmates for the work in the morning on the day that you get back.
