Grade Policy

Mr. DeWitt


Welcome to sixth grade. I hope you are as excited as I am about this coming year. I can’t wait to begin.

          Your grade will be determined by percentage. Tests will be worth two grades, meaning that a test grade will count twice as much as a homework grade. When a quiz or test is graded I will record this grade twice, so if a test grade is an 85% then I will record an 85% twice. If the assignment is late then the student will lose 10 percentage points per day that it is late. After 3 days, if the assignment is not turned in, then a 0 will be recorded. If the student is not finished with an assignment, then they will be asked to complete the assignment at milk break or they may choose to work during recess. So it is very important that the Assignment Book is signed and homework checked every night.

          The students will be following all rules set forth in the student handbook. These listed below are my class rules.


  1. Listen and follow directions the first time asked.

  2. Stay quiet while the teacher is speaking.

  3. Raise hand if you have a question or a statement to make.

  4. Respect each other- Treat others as you would like to be treated.

  5. Do your best everyday.


    Infractions of class rules may result in one or more of the following:


                       1. Warning- Verbal/nonverbal

                       2. Note home to parents

                       4. Call home

                       5. Detention after school


    If All of the students follow All of the rules for every subject during the day the class will earn marbles. When the marble jar is filled the class gets to participate in a 20 minute activity of their choice.


    If there is anything that you have questions on please call.

    Please sign and return
