• Phil Weagraff’s 6th - 8th Grade Classes 


    ¨    AR reading receives 100 pts per quarter [Roughly 10% of each quarterly grade. Goal based on reading level and 3 hours of reading a week.]

    ¨     Projects: Group or individual projects/presentations receive anywhere from 50 points to 200 points depending on the length and detail of content required. [Attendence at school activities.]

    ¨        Late Assignments:  It is every teacher's expectation that all assignments be submitted on time. Student citizenship is important to each teacher. A student should not expect full credit for late assignments; no late assignments will be accepted for full credit unless accompanied with an excused absence or arranged personally with me. However, completing and turning in assignments late will receive some credit, which WILL have a significant positive impact on the overall grade. It is not our intention to overload students with homework. If students use class time wisely and manage their time outside of school well, homework or timelines should not be overwhelming or unreasonable. 

    ¨       Periodic tests and quizzes are given and graded; quizzes are usually not more than 30 pts, while tests are anywhere from 50 points and above depending on quantity of content in the test.

    ¨       Extra Credit will not be available. There is an equal opportunity for each student to earn extra credit. I have extra credit weaved into most assignments [quizzes, handouts, etc] throughout each quarter. It has been my observation that students who complete the assignments initially handed out, and turn them in, complete and on time, always perform at or above grade level. 


    ¨       Students are to raise their hands if they want my attention or make a verbal contribution to the class.

    ¨       All classroom assignments to be completed will be written in the Daily Planners [when at school]. Major assignments and due dates are posted  on the school's website; select the Teacher icon, then my name.

    ¨       Each class has an assignment box in the classroom that they are to use when an assignment is complete.

    ¨       Students are expected to have all necessary materials for each class: Chromebook AND charger, AR book, pencil or pen, SpringBoard booklet, and all current assignments. 

    ¨       Students are expected to be ready to work at the bell that begins class time either reading their AR book or wring in their journal responding to a daily prompt.

    Pretty Much One Classroom Rule: RESPECT [Showing Value] at all times – towards all people - under every circumstance - and all property.
