classroom expectations
Classroom Expectations
  • Be respectful and responsible
  • Do your best
  • Be safe
  • Bring a pencil, IKE pages and your science journal to class every day
class work
Class Work
  • Science class work
  • includes group work,
  • inquiry labs, readings and processing for learning.
  • Students must complete work and keep on top of their progress in science in a timely and responsible manner.
tardies and absences
Tardies and Absences
  • Your child’s IKE pages will outline Eisenhower’s tardy and absence policies.
  • When your child is absent from school, missed class work and assessments will need to be completed.
  • Science is primarily lab based, therefore missed lab work will need to be completed in the classroom instead of at home.
  • Many assignments are available for you to see and print from my website.
science journals
Science Journals

An essential component to science

learning

  • Each student will need three composition books (one for each unit).
  • All assignments must be completed to the best of each student’s ability.
  • Journals are a resource, study guide, and system to practice knowledge and learning.
  • Journals can go home, but need to be in class each day.
slide15

Grading

  • Science Journal Checked
  • Classwork and Homework completed
  • Summative Assessments
  • Grades are entered into the grade book by the learning targets
  • and will appear online
  • *Classwork and Homework is a percentage of students’ grades.
  • Tips and suggestions for studying are in the reference section of your child’s science journal.
