All students in Mr. Fallon's IC/STEM and IC HOPE classes are requried to have a MARBLE JOURNAL for class.  

Grading Policy

IC/STEM Class

All Stem classes will be responsible for keeping a weekly journal for class.  Journal entries can be done in paragraph form, illustrations or both.  All weekly entries must be dated.  Each journal entry will be 10 pts and will be collected every week.  Each project will count as between 5 - 20 pts, as well as, content knowledge quizes.  If you are absent from school, for that journal entry just write the date and absent on the page.   Stem Classes will be given a number grade at the end of the marking period.

Gym

All students start with a 100 average.  Each unprepared counts as minus 5.  Any other problems in class such as behavior, not participating in activity, not doing exercises, gum chewing can result in the loss of points as well. 

Students will now be assigned a numeric grade for gym on their report card.

Health

Health is a numeric grade on your report card.  Here is the break down of points.

Test / Quizes = 50 %

Classwork / Participation = 25 %

Homework = 25 %

Late Work Policy

There will be a due date for all assignments given to you.  It is your responsibility to hand in all assignments on their due date.  If an assignment is not handed in on its due date it can be handed in the next class period for half credit.  If it is not handed in the next class it will result in a zero for the assignment.  When that assignment becomes a ZERO, that assignment can not be made up.

 

Make Up Work

If you are absent one day, you have one day to make up that assignment.  If you are absent on the day of a test or quiz, you will make up the test or quiz the following health class.
