    • Grading Policy
      • There are three categories that are used in calculating your child's grade; summative assessments/tests, class participation, and checkpoints which is for completion of in class assignments (morning work, small group work). These three categories are combined to give a percentage and based on that percentage will show if your child receives a "S" for satisfactory, or a "U" for unsatisfactory. Grades will be taken for each subject (math, ELA, Science/Social Studies, Enrichment Learning, and special areas (art, music, gym)).
