·         Writing or listening activities in class

·         Notes checking

·         Classroom management( Calendar )  from 150 to 200 points

You will loose 20 points if you lost your calendar and you need to draw one.

·         If you have an unexcused absence you can not make up any group or individual assignments on that day.

But you will have 5 days to make up any missing homework, quiz or test on that day.


ALL MAKE – UP QUIZZES AND TEST ARE  8th period only, room 230 (other wise I  will tell you).



Your semester grade will be calculated in the following manner:

Quarter 1:40%                            Quarter 3:40%

Quarter 2: 40%                           Quarter 4:40%

Semester exam: 20%                   Semester exam: 20%


Grading scale: A    90----100%           D 60-----69%

                        B     80----89%            F   59------0%

                        C     70-----79%



Homework will be graded on completeness not on correctness.  In order to have full credit for your HW, you must complete & show it to me when I check it.  My general policy is:  NO WORK------NO CREDIT.  If you forget your homework in your locker, I will give you a pass to go get it.  You will receive full credit.  I DO NOT TAKE MORE THAN ONE DAY LATE HOMEWORK.


Definition of late homework: If you can not show to me the homework when I check it, your homework will be a late homework.  You will receive ½ credits.


If you have an absence, it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to come and talk to me or classmates to get the missing assignments/ notes.  It is also YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to reschedule any quiz or test you may have missed. I do not remind students about quizzes, tests, projects or HW. It is your responsibility to read your French syllabus every day.



If you are absent, YOU HAVE FIVE DAYS INCLUDING THE DAY YOU RETURN  to make-up all the missing assignments: homework, quiz and test.


For Projects please note:

Projects can be made up as long as I receive a letter or a phone call from parents/guardians within five days, indicating the reason why the project was not turned in.  Turned in projects without a letter or a phone call from parents will receive 50 % of the total grade of that project.  Students will receive Zero if I do not receive the projects.


Students fail to schedule an appointment with ME to make up quiz, test, homework or project in their allowed period will receive a Zero (0) for the missing quiz, test, homework and project.


Students will be given a schedule for homework, quiz, test and project at the beginning of the week.  There is


No excuse for not knowing when quizzes, tests, homework or projects are given.


Note: Field trips do not excuse you from the next day’s work, quiz or test.    You are responsible for any missing instruction on that day.


Make up quizzes, tests will  be taken 8 th period  only and within 5 days.
