Welcome to 6th grade Honors Science Class!
Mrs. Burns – Room 30
ALWAYS bring the following required materials to class everyday unless you are told otherwise.
Science Textbook: Each student has access to an online textbook at home. Students will not be bringing a book home, since this is internet based. Any student that does not have access to the internet will be provided a text to use at home for assignments. We have a class set of textbooks for classroom use. Our Textbook is called Issues and Earth Science. (IAES)
**NOTE – Any of these listed required materials missing in class, will result in the student being unprepared for the day. After three times, this will be a write up for disciplinary action. This is school policy.
BEGINNING/ENDING OF CLASS
1. Be on time for class. If you are late for ANY reason, you will be marked as late on
2. Upon entering the room, take out your science text, folder, notebook, and pencil.
Leave all other materials in your bag or purse and on the floor, not in the aisle.
3. Go to your locker before or after class. You will NOT be permitted to go to your
locker at any time during the class period.
4. Clean up your desk and the area around you before leaving.
5. If completing a lab, be sure all equipment is cleaned and put away properly. The
lab table should be as neat as you found it.
6. Write down your homework assignment in your planner.
Evaluation / Grades:
A zero will be given for all homework assignments that are not turned in on their due date.
The only exception is when you have an excused absence from school. Then you will be
given the opportunity to make-up the work for full credit.
If you miss class for any reason (excused or unexcused), you are responsible for getting the
work and having it completed for the due date.
One letter grade per day will be taken from projects that are turned in late. No project will be
accepted more than 5 days after the due date.
Check PowerSchool regularly to keep track of your grade.
Lab / Activities:
**Class preparation and class participation are very important to your success. If you contribute in class and are well prepared, your grades will improve.
**A “0” will be used in PowerSchool when a student is absent until the assignment is made up.
**Students may make-up labs, missed assignments, tests, quizzes, or get extra help at any time by making arrangements with me at least one day in advance.
Independent Research Project:
Students are responsible for conducting a research project of their choosing. This project may be entered into the Salem County Science Fair held at the Salem Community College. More details will follow.
PARENTS: Please feel free to email me at school or call if you have any questions or concerns throughout the school year. I have an open door policy, and am here to help in any way I can. I look forward to having a great year!
