HOW DO I KEEP UP WITH WHAT IS
GOING ON IN SCIENCE CLASS?
• • Check my website. This lists what is being
done in class daily, including any homework that
is assigned. (Assignments may vary by class
period due to sharing of equipment. Check for
class period listed on website.) I usually update
this site on the weekend, but may change things
during the week depending on class pacing and
other things that may change the schedule.

HOW WILL I KNOW HOW MY CHILD IS
DOING IN SCIENCE?
• • Grades upon request.
• • If you have a question or concern, please
contact me.
• E-mail is most convenient:
[email protected]
• Room phone # 533-5639
• • Sign on to Texas (Parent) Connect to see all
grades in all classes.
HOW WILL MY CHILD’S SCIENCE
GRADE BE EVALUATED?
• Science grades will be assessed periodically.
Students will take quizzes, exams and
participate in laboratory investigations.
ASSIGNMENT BREAKDOWN
• Quizzes 25%
• Homework, Classwork 15%
• Exams, Labs, Projects, and Research Papers
60%
HOW OFTEN IS SCIENCE HOMEWORK
ASSIGNED?
• Homework will be assigned when needed in this
class. Due to the shortened classes we do not
have the luxury of allowing much time in class to
work on homework. Homework may be assigned
for the following reasons:
• If students need reinforcement of the current
lesson
• If students need preview of an upcoming lesson
• When lab work is not completed in class
• When students need to study for quizzes and
exams
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN MY CHILD IS
ABSENT?
• An absent student is responsible for making up any
work missed during an absence.
• How to find out what was missed.
• • Check website
• • Ask the teacher
• • Check homework board/daily work folders
• • Check daily agenda board
• District policy states that students have one day, for
every day absent, to complete any missed work.
Extended periods of absence will be dealt with on an
individual basis.
NEED HELP?
COME TO TUTORIALS.
• I am at school every morning by 7:45 and
usually at school for at least 30 minutes in the
afternoon. Setting an appointment in advance
for tutorials is suggested.
• Students may also use the S.T.T. to visit
individual teachers.
• Homework Hall will have a science teacher on
duty on certain days. (students should check
schedule)
Homework Hall
• Assigned on the day when students do not have their HW
completed.
• Students will call parents to inform them of the HW Hall
assignment.
• Meets in library from 4:00-5:00.
• Quiet working atmosphere.
• Bus pass will be issued if needed.
• Assignment will be stamped and will need to be turned into the
teacher the following day. Maximum grade of 70%.
• If cannot attend in PM, then must go to CMC room from 7:30-8:30
the next morning. Will need a parent note.
• Failure to attend will result in a behavior referral to A.P.
• Any students receiving a failing grade on major assignments may
also elect to attend HW Hall, after the graded assignment is
returned, to redo the assignment for a maximum grade of 70%.
U.I.L. (No Pass, No Play)
• Students involved in extra-curricular activities not
passing all classes at the 6 week grading period will
be ineligible to participate in competition for three
weeks.
• Eligibility is reinstated after three weeks if student is
