I hope all is well in your households considering the hectic nature of the first days of school. Due to the 2014-2015 Jenks Miiddle School Grading and Late Work Policy, I have changed the categories on my grading scale. Your student should have changed the categories on the syllabus to the following:
End Products (tests, book reports, presentations,etc..) : 30%
Routine Practice (homework, "Bellringers"): 20%
Summative Writing (major essays): 30%
Quizzes (vocabulary, etc.): 10%
Final Exam: 10%
Please email me for further explanation. I am willing to help!
