Grades are available on portal. Please check them regularly and feel free to ask me any questions.
***There is no "extra credit" in Ms. Stringer's class, however, you may retake and test or quiz to bring your grade up, BUT you must first redo all incorrect problems on loose-leaf paper WITH ALL work shown AND have your parents signature and your own to show that you are ready to set a time with me to retake. All retakes may be taken within two (2) weeks from the test date and MUST done before or after school by app't. only at either 9 am OR 4:30pm.
*Your child is required to attend every math class and if absent the day of a quiz or test, must be responsible (by email preferrably) to arrange a day and time within ONE week from day of absence (preferrable the following day).
A student must also arrange a time to grade the assignment due on the day they were out, so we can go over it.
Students are responsible for emailing me whenever they are out, so they receive the assignment, this way you will not get behind.
*Students will have daily assignments that need to be completed by showing work and trying every problem. They will receive a 100% for effort, so please attempt every problem, A for effort.
