The grading in our classroom will be based on a “point system”. Every assignment will be worth a certain number of points. Your student will earn points based on the quality and completeness of his or her work. At the end of each week, I will add all of the points each student has earned. I will then divide this number by the total points possible and determine a percent and letter grade for your child. For example:
