Grades are based on Behavior/Participation, Assessments and paperwork.
Behavior/ Participation Grade
These grades will be labeled behavior/participation on our website.
Your child will receive a 100 % for every day in music class without
having a name and check on the board for not following the rules.
They just need to follow the rules and do their best.
Ways to have points taken away:
-a check during music class (see discipline policy)
-not cooperating or not participating in class
Ways to earn extra credit points
-I usually pick 2-4 students for exceptional behavior and class participation. These students are recognized a Super Star Musicians. They will receive an extra 100 for music class that day along with their reward.
Paperwork & Assessments: Any paperwork can be revised for a better grade. Assessments can not be retaken, but extra credit work is available upon request.
Note: If a class is missed for an excused absence, a field trip, snow day or vacation, the student automatically gets credit for that day.
