Classroom Policies

Students will be given the Bogert Student Handbook the first day of school, please review so you are familiar with school-wide policies.

Homework is a way of assessing a student's understanding of concepts learned in class. The students are graded on the number of turned in assignments. If an assignment is late or missing, it is recorded and the student has the following night to make up the assignment. Of course, students absent due to illness will be given the necessary time to make up missed assignments.    

We copy down homework together everyday. Students may decide to take a picture of the homework board in addition to writing it in thier agenda.  All homework will be posted on our class website as well.  There will be times that unfinished classwork becomes homework for students.  Students are expected to record these personal items in their assignment books, and to complete them by the next morning.

Study guides will be given to the students for some of the tests given.  We will prepare in class for tests, and students will be expected to prepare nightly for an upcoming test, once it has been announced.  Signed tests are to be returned the next day.

Please find our grading system below:  

4 = Consistently exceeds expectations 

3 = Meets expectations  

2 = Sometimes meets expectations  

1 = Rarely meets expectations  


There is a "working snack" every morning. "Working snack" is a time where students can eat their snack while continuing to work on their current classwork. Snacks should include healthy food such as fruits and/or vegetables.

Birthdays will be celebrated during the school day.  Due to possible allergies, please contact me ahead of time if you plan on sending in a birthday snack for the class.
