Sixth grade is where students begin their journey to become independent learners.  

Please check your PowerSchool account regularly and actively monitor your progress in class.  Utilize our Week at a Glance to see what assignments are due and if there are upcoming tests, quizzes, or projects.

There will be three categories of grades:  Summative Grades, Formative Grades, and Individual Practice.  Your final Summative Average will be weighted 50% of your total marking period grade, your Formative Average will be weighted 40% of your total marking period grade, and your Individual Practice will be weighted 10% of your total marking period grade.  This is based on the Hamilton Township BOE 2015-2016 Grading Policy.

Attention Parents/Guardians:

  1. Please visit your child’s Powerschool Portal to view ALL upcoming due dates for assessments, projects and homework.

  1. Students will be given 1 WEEK to complete and submit a formative or summative assignment. Teachers will use their discretion about dropping points for late assignments.  If not handed in for partial credit after one week, the assignment will receive a Zero.

  1. Assignments that are not submitted on time will have a “0” place holder UNTIL the assignment is completed and submitted.  Once a grade is placed, the Zero is removed.
