Rules and Expectations
1. Be on time with all needed materials.
2. Turn in assignments and homework when they are due.
**students who fail to turn in homework on time 3 times in a 9 weeks will receive a conduct cut, as it is a persistent responsibility issue. This will be noted in the agenda or via phone call.
3. Be respectful to yourself, your classmates, your teacher, and the room.
4. Ask questions and participate.
5. Try your best and be on task.

Third/Fourth/Fifth Grade Reteach/Retest Procedures Students will be retaught concepts they do not master. Reteaching may take place in whole group, small group, or during individual instruction

  1. Students will be allowed one opportunity to retest on major grades only.  Rubrics, projects and final nine weeks/semester assessments will be exempt from reteach/retest procedures.

  2. Reteach/retest will need to be done within ten days of the original test being given.
  3. Retest can be an alternative assessment on the same content or the same activity.
  4. Students who earn a grade below a 70% will be required to participate in a reteach session and then retest for that assignment.  
  5. Students will receive an average of the two grades.  If a student receives a lower grade on the retest, then the original grade will stand in the gradebook
