Contact Mme V! Room P8A Tutorials: Tuesdays and Thursdays
LATE WORK and MAKEUP PROCEDURES Late work: Daily Work and Projects – Daily work and projects are expected to be complete and turned at the beginning of class on the day they are due. If a student does not have the assignment he/she may bring it in the next SCHOOL day for 80% if complete. Each day after that there will be 10 points deducted. Retakes: Test and Quizzes – If a student makes below a 70 on a test or a quiz that student has the opportunity to retake the test or quiz. He/she has 2 school days to come in to retake the test or quiz. One day can be for tutoring and then the next retake the test, but this is up to the student to decide. We do understand that there may be some extenuating circumstances, but exceptions will only be made if a parent calls the teacher to discuss those circumstances. The student can earn no higher than a 70 on the retake. Makeup work – Please see me immediately upon your return to school for the work that you missed during your absence. I am happy to work with you and explain assignments to you during my tutorial times. – Tests and quizzes that were missed must be made up before or after school within one week after the student returns to school.
PARTICIPATION Students MUST speak in French as much as possible. Daily participation is expected and will be recorded.
HALL PASSES Students will be issued a hall pass at the beginning of the six weeks and may use it at the teachers discretion. If the student cannot produce the pass, he or she will not be able to leave the classroom except in the case of a dire emergency.
