Check out your students grades online. Contact the counselors if you have questions.

 * Important items to bring all year:

   Respect for self

   Respect for adults

   Respect for peers

*As with all material found on the Internet, teachers and parents should be very careful in allowing students to explore these sites unless direct supervision is provided. Harrisonburg City Public Schools is not responsible for the content of various links beyond the initial levels of each site.

Homework and Grading:

 

*Homework that is given is expected to be completed for the next day unless assigned for a specific future date such as projects that may take longer.

                                                 80 - 89    B

                                                 70 - 79    C

                                                 60 - 69    D

                                                 below 60  F

    * Grade calculation: 

       Participation 10 points
