Student Re-take Policy

For Grammar Tests: Students who earn less than a 70% have an opportunity to retake monthly grammar tests. In order to be eligible for a re-take, the month's grammar warm-ups must be 100% complete in a student's INB. To complete a re-take, a student must sign in to my classroom for one Access period. During the Access period, the student will receive direct instruction from me or a peer. After the review, they will be eligible to re-take the test. The test will have different questions but cover the exact same concepts from the original.


For Writing Assignments: Students who earn less than a 60% (or determined passing score) on a writing assignment have the opportunity to rewrite. A late paper cannot be rewritten, as it is assumed that the reason it was late is due to needing extra time to meet the paper expectations. To submit a re-take, a student must highlight any changes in the document, reprint it, and staple the new version to the original piece/rubric and turn-in by the set re-submission date.

Classroom Wishlist (Amazon)

If you so choose, you can make a donation to our classroom using the link below to access my Amazon Wishlist. My wishlist consists mostly of books to add to our classroom library, but I also have included items like fidgets, flexible seating, and other items we make use of in our classroom. I update this list based on current needs, as well as items students have requested. Any gift is greatly appreciated and treasured by my students.
