Eighth Grade American History Oskaloosa Middle School
WELCOME! I’m glad you are taking advantage of this website! I have added many items which can help you be more successful in class, including weekly assignments, links to interesting websites, and ways to contact me with questions. I check my email daily Monday though Friday during the school year. In case you missed class, click on the “While You Were Gone” link at the top of this page. I am confident you will be successful when you supply the effort, a positive attitude, and responsibility.
Homework Expectations: Almost all assignments are due at the beginning of the next class period. They are considered late if finished anytime after that. My policy on late work: • Work is due when it is due. • If you choose not to complete your homework, detention will be awarded at 8 am the following day to do the work. • 1 day late = 10% deducted from the final grade. More than a day late through end of term = 50% will be deducted. • Make up work from being absent will be 2 days for every day missed.
Our Classroom Expectations: 1) Treat others as you would like to be treated 2) Turn in assignments on time 3) Raise your hand to talk 4) Listen closely to directions
