My name is Kara Taylor and I am so excited to be teaching 6th grade Math and Science! This will be my first year teaching at Northview Middle School. I attended college at Liberty University in Virginia and I have previously taught 8th grade Math. I live in Conover with my husband and I have four sons ranging in age from 3 to 12 years old. I love spending time with my family, visiting the beach, and reading.

Northview 6th Grade Grading Polices:

Grading Scale:

The 6th grade operates on a weighted grade scale. Students’ assignments fall into one of the following categories (Classwork, Homework, Quiz, or Test) and each category is a certain percent of a student’s grade. 

Classwork 20%

Homework 20%

Quiz 25%

Test 35%

Late Work: 

· Late work will be accepted for up to 5 days after an assignment is due. 

· Students will receive reduced credit for any assignment that is late. 

· If an assignment is more than five days late, no credit will be received for that assignment (a grade of zero will be entered into the grade book).

 

Missing Work (due to absence from school):

Students are allowed to make up all assignments that are missed when they are absent from school. Students must request missing work from each teacher the day they return to school. Students will have one day in addition to the number of days that they were absent in order to complete and turn in all missing work without penalty. (For example: If a student misses 1 day of school, they will have 2 days to complete and turn in and complete all make up work upon returning to school).
