Welocme to the Team Griffins Ancient History website.  I am excited about working with your child this year.  I look forward to classroooms filled with creativity, critical thinking and empowerment!  I suggest an agenda for students to write assignments daily. An agenda will help to ensure accountbility and help with management of  multiple classroom assignments.Image result for ancient history

The grading policy for Castle Heights is as follows:

Category weights:

Tests/Projects 50%,

Quizzes 30%,  (every Friday as formative asessments)

Classwork/Homework 20%

- Retake Policy:

Quizzes: Students are given a 3 week time span to make corrections on any quizzes they have taken.  Students will  have remediation and reteaching during small groups or individual conferences before retaking a test or quiz.

Tests: If a student wants to retake a test, they must complete a remediation assignment, turn it in and then schedule a time  (before school or lunch) to take the re-take.


Canvas:  Each student will be assigned a Canvas account.  Canvas allows students, parents and teachers to communicate upcoming assignments, notes, and grades (uploaded immediately after a test/quiz).  Parents you are  encouraged to become an observer of your child's Canvas page.
