Highlander Charter School
Homeroom 7B: Room 216
Academic classes: 7th Science/ 7-9 Math
Teacher: Mr. Bovay email@example.com- 529-1080
Welcome to 7th grade! It is our responsibility to prepare your child both academically and socially for high school and beyond. Students will be expected to take ownership of their learning as their workload and responsibilities increase.
Please remember that we will be holding an open house on Thursday, August 29th from 5:30 to 7:00. This will take the place of the traditional home visits, due to the fact that your child will have 5 or 6 teachers (1 for each of the core subjects, plus Art and Fitness). The open house will allow you to meet all of your child's teachers.
The following information will give you an overview of what to expect this year.
Materials for class
Math- a box of pencils, pencil sharpener, an inexpensive calculator, tab dividers, graphing notebook (Mr. Wolf), single subject notebook (Mr. Bovay)
LA- 2-inch binder with tab dividers, folder, writers notebook, highlighters, pens, pencils
Science- folder, 2 or 3 subject notebook, pens and pencils, colored pencils.
History-1 USB Flashdrive, 1 Binder with 3 sections (tab dividers), 2 packs of lined composition paper, 3 packs of pencils, 1 sharpener, 1 pocket- folder, 1 box of markers, 1 box of coloring pencils
Teachers use an electronic grading system with the following categories and weights:
Test and Quiz 30% Classwork 30% Performance 30% Homework 10%
Homework must be turned in on the specified due date, which the teacher will verify. If the homework isn't handed in on the due date, it must be turned in on the following school day, in which it will receive a maximum grade of 60%. Failure to turn in the HW will result in a 0% for the assignment.
Progress reports will be handed out biweekly on Mondays. They must be signed and returned by the end of the week.
