Homework is posted in the classroom on our objective board. Have students check this daily. This homework may be from the book, worksheet, or digital (from the online science curriculum or in the Google Classroom). Students should write down their homework in their planner each day which they received at the beginning of the school year. Please check these with your child.
Access Rosetta Stone at https://olphschoolca.rosettastoneclassroom.com/en-US if you miss a session or want to work on it at home. Your goal is to increase your score 2% per week. This increase only occurs when you are actively working with the program and passing each lesson (with 90% or higher). Remember to finish all lessons in a unit before moving onto the next unit. Note, when working and running reports, units 1 – 4 are level 1 while units 5 – 8 are classified as level 2.
Math and Science have online components for easy access and review.

Check Gradelink weekly. That will allow you to see the most updated grade information. Middle School students should bring any issues up after class or send me an email. Make sure you bring the assignment with you when discussing it.
Students have 10 calendar days from the due date to turn in any missing work. They will loose 10% of the grade if it is not turned in on time during class. These late assignments will be placed in the appropriate subject drawer by the back door. After this grace period, I will not grade the assignment.
Even if you are absent (not present to my class), you are still responsible for all the material covered and any assignments given. Please make sure major projects/assignments are submitted on time. Look in the absent drawer and speak to the teacher before or after class for any help or clarification. This is your responsibility to follow up with the teacher.
There are no test/quiz corrections allowed. This is due to the fact that we practice and discuss skills in class, have opportunities to seek help, and we review what will be on the exam in class.
Projects can not be redone, please read the rubric clearly. This is due to the fact that exactly what is required is listed on the rubric (which is gone over in class), students have a chance to ask questions, have time to research, and multiple days to accomplish the task. No exceptions.
