TESTS AND QUIZZES
Reminder to parents: All tests /quizzes and other graded work are always sent home with your child! Please ask your children to see their graded work!
USE UNIT OUTLINES (at bottom of page), CLASSWORK, AND HOMEWORK TO STUDY!
(Everything behind the math tab in your binder) :)
HOMEWORK - please check your child's agenda
Homework will be assigned nearly every night, Monday through Thursday, depending on what is covered in class that day. Please note that all four of my classes could potentially have a different homework assignment.
Homework assignments will be written visibly on the board. Students will be reminded at the end of each class period to record the assignment in their agenda. Please help me make this their responsibility by asking your child to see their agenda.
**If students are not assigned "written homework" they should be using their chapter outline/study guide to review for upcoming tests or quizzes **.
Homework will be checked the day following its assignment. Complete and accurate assignments will receive a grade of 100%. Incomplete homework or missing homework will receive a grade of 0%. If a student receives a grade of 0% they are required to make up the assignment for a grade of 50%.

Welcome to 6th Grade Math!!
I am so excited to be your child’s 6th grade math teacher. This year will be my 16th year teaching 6th grade math and I am proud to have been a part of the Moultrie family for the last 13 years! I have been married for 10 years to my husband, Drew and have two daughters, Blake who is 7 and Paige who is 5. I am looking forward to a productive and enjoyable year. Please contact me by email if you have any questions or concerns. Parents, teachers, and students must work together to ensure that our year together is both a positive and rewarding experience.
