Important Dates ____ School Year
As of the 2015-2016 School Year, 8th Grade students follow the High School grading policy. Students keep ALL GRADES for an entire semester and grades are calculated as a percentage. Small assignments are worth fewer points than major assignments and will reflect a smaller change in a student's overall average than a major assignment will. It is very important to TURN IN every assignment. A zero will bring a students grade down very quickly. It is better to try your best and earn at least some credit than to not turn in an assignment at all. All 8th grade students will be taught the new grading system procedures in class.
