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.
The grading policy for Castle Heights is as follows:
Quizzes 30%, (every Friday as formative asessments)
- 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.
