Grade Reports

Math Grade Reports go home every two weeks. The purpose of the grade reports is to track grades so there is no surprise when Progress Reports or Report Cards go home. Although parents and students can check grades in SchoolMax, this Math Grade Report is just a way to see all grades in a list format...all in one place.

Use the Grade Reports to keep up with assignments. Fix any grade that is less than 70%. Submit any assignments that say "mi", which means missing. The percentage on the Grade Report should match SchoolMax. Please note that SchoolMax is the official grade of record.

Grade Reports must be signed by parents/guardians and returned to the teacher.

Back-to-School Get to Know You Activity

So today was the first day of school and we had to get to know each other. We completed a "get to know you activity" called Find Someone Who...  I've done this activity at staff meetings before and it's so fun. I found the one on Teachers Pay Teachers.

The students scanned QR Codes. The codes told the students to find someone who was left-handed, who was wearing pink, just to name a few.
