• Dear Parents/Guardians and Math Students,                                                                                                                   August 2022

     

                  Welcome back to school and an exciting year. I am glad to have you in my class! I believe that success in school depends on cooperation and communication. In order to begin this communication process and to ensure a productive year, my students will observe the following expectations and requirements as set forth by the Mathematics Department of Canyon Hills Junior High School.

     

    BE PREPARED TO SUCCEED EVERY DAY! Each day you are expected to bring:

    1. CHARGED Chromebook (WITH charger)
    2. Math workbook  (Keep your covered textbook at home.)
    3. Agenda
    4. Completed Homework
    5. All supplies as outlined in the agenda   **If you have any trouble acquiring these supplies, please see your teacher.

     

    NEATNESS/WORK HABITS: It is important that you take pride in all the work you do and that you do your very best on each assignment. All assignments must be written on standard-sized, three-hole paper.  Also, you must show each step for every problem. TO EARN FULL CREDIT, HOMEWORK MUST BE COMPLETED AND SHOW ALL STEPS.

     

    CLASSROOM RULES/CONSEQUENCES: Our Math Department will enforce the School-Wide Classroom Behavior expectations as outlined in the agenda. Remember: Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible!

     

    ACADEMIC HONESTY: If you choose to cheat on homework, quizzes, tests, etc., you shall earn NO CREDIT, a detention, and lowered citizenship grade for that trimester. Refer to Academic Honesty Policy in the agenda. CW is collaborated upon, not HW.

     

    GRADES: Grades will be weighted in the following manner (CHJHS Math Dept. Policy):

    *(agenda signatures, class notes, etc…)                                    

    Grades are posted online in Aeries. Parents and students are encouraged to follow your progress and achievement weekly.  Grades are updated weekly. Any discrepancies should be addressed immediately!

     

    EXTRA HELP: Students may obtain extra help from me after school. I post my availability weekly. There are also many online tutorials, such as the Paper App in ClassLink (free 24/7 online tutoring). Be sure you are not just copying, but understanding.

     

    HOMEWORK: You need to copy the agenda as soon as you enter the classroom so you will know what we are learning and what homework is expected each day. Your homework may be multiday assignments/projects. TO EARN FULL CREDIT, HOMEWORK MUST BE COMPLETED AND SHOW ALL STEPS.

     

    ABSENCES: It is the student’s responsibility to check to see what you missed during their absence. They need to copy down the agenda, write down any missing assignment, notes, tests, quizzes, projects, etc. and ask questions if anything needs clarification. Also, turn in whatever was due ON the day you missed. You will have the number of days absent to make up daily assignments.

     

    MISSED TESTS/QUIZZES:  Missed tests/quizzes can be made up after school or by appointment.

     

    Please feel free to contact me by email at laura_iacopetti@chino.k12.ca.us. When possible, ask questions in person.

    I am looking forward to a successful year!

     

    Sincerely,

    Mrs. Laura Iacopetti
