**Homework**: Homework will be assigned on a daily basis to reinforce material covered in class. Your child will receive a homework grade based on homework completed during a one-month period. The student’s grade begins with an “4” and for each missing homework, one grade is subtracted from that “4”. Homework is checked and corrected every day. A homework detention is given when 3 homeworks are missing in **any subject** in the same marking period by **any teacher**

**Summative and Formative Assessments: **Formative assessments will be given during a unit of study to see where each student is as we progress through a unit. Summative assessments will be given at the conclusion of a unit. Students will be given a continual review of the unit will always be given well in advance of an assessment and the students will always be well prepared. **Ongoing review of concepts is a must, and not the night before.**

**
Trimesters**: Trimesters are given once per trimester and are a cumulative assessment of that trimester’s work. A very comprehensive review is always given.

**Projects and Performance Tasks (PT’s): **There will be one major project and at least one performance task per Unit of Study.

**Math Pin**: A Math pin is given to those students at class night who have attained a 4 in every trimester during grade 8. Conduct grade must also be excellent.

**Extra Help**: This year, extra help will be on Mondays and Wednesdays during lunch time. Students must make an appointment to come for extra help.
