• Grading 
    Students are evaluated daily, through not only assignments and tests but teacher observation and self-evaluation. 
    Grades will be issued based on the Madison School District guidelines:

    4= Exceeds Standard


    2= Progress toward Meeting Standard

    1= Limited Progress toward Meeting the Standard

    Tests will be graded and sent home on Fridays in "Friday Folders".  

    All tests must be signed by a parent/guardian and returned to me on Monday of the following week. Thanks! :) 



    Homework is an essential tool as it not only reviews and reinforces concepts but teaches accountability and responsibility.  

    Students are expected to read independently for 30 minutes a night.

    Additionally, students will have math homework from our Math in Focus curriculum on Monday-Thursday

    To encourage independence and responsibility, students will use their Spelling Menu (to be discussed in class) to complete 2 activities per week.
