Announcements in 6th Grade Religion
Welcome back to the new school year! I can’t wait to learn together and grow together in our Catholic faith.
Homework This Week in Religion
Each student has been supplied with a physical planner notebook. Please check the planner daily for any homework assignments and due dates. All middle school staff will be concentrating on the paper planner at the start of the school to help each student develop a daily routine of writing in and checking their planners. Teachers will give time at the end of each class and during study hall to update them.
5 hours of service are required by every student in middle school each trimester. Forms are due 1 week before the end of each trimester.
The emphasis of this work should be “outreach” to our community, primarily with non-profit organizations.
At the beginning of the year, students were able to submit posts about topics they wanted to learn about in Religion class this year. Every Friday, I will pick a post and will create a short presentation on that topic. Ask your child about what we learned this Friday!
Each student has a Google Classroom account where teachers can create classes and students can join them. Here, I will be posting most of our assignments, especially Article of the Week. You will need to submit (TURN IN) your assignments on Google Classroom, not on loose-leaf. I will be able to send you comments and feedback through Google Classroom, so make sure you are watching for that.
Formative Assessment (Independent Reading assignments, Independent Writing assignments, quizzes, worksheets, Articles of the Week) –30% ; Summative Assessment (Papers, Essays, Tests)–60% ; Class Participation–10%
F 69 and below
If you have any further questions, you can consult my Syllabus, or send me an email. I would be happy to explain or talk about any questions you have.
Reading Power School
If you are looking at your grades on Power School and don’t understand what you are looking at, following this little cheat sheet!
Missing Assignments: If you have an “M” for an assignment, it means that you did not turn it in (either for an excused absence or because you didn’t have it done). If you have JUST an “M” in the box, it means you had an excused absence that day. If you have an “M” AND a “0” for the assignment, it means you didn’t hand it in at all. Once you turn it in, you will get credit for the assignment. (See Late Policy on my Syllabus for questions concerning missing assignments)
Check Marks: If there is a check mark for an assignment, it means that you turned in the assignment but I have not graded it yet. **Some assignments might not be graded, it might just be an assessment for me to direct my instruction.
