About Class and Me
Welcome to Mr. Osborne's class!
Grade 6 - Ancient History
Hello Parents and Guardians,
To make this year as successful as possible for you, please visit this site on a daily basis to check for updates on class news and other important information relating to our class. Assignments and homework will be available through Google Classroom and you can see upcoming assignments and assessments on the page for your period. The "Stream" homepage of Google Classroom will be kept as minimal as possible, and will only show the class schedule for the week, which will contain information and links for all activities for class. If students are absent from school, they can check the schedule and keep up with work if possible.
Please check the Genesis Parent Portal daily to keep up with any missing work!
After ALL students have completed an assessment, a copy of the assessment with the student's answers will be shared with them. It can be found in their "Shared With Me" folder in Google Drive. They should move the file to their appropriate classroom folder.
All grades for assessments will normally be posted within 24 hours of the time the student finishes the assessment. Students will always be given a study guide a week prior to the assessment date. It is highly recommended that the students take the time to complete the study guides.
Students will have a grace period of 7 days after a project (supplemental assignment) is due to turn it in for a grade. Projects will be accepted late for a maximum score of 90% credit (up to the final date of the marking period).
While we will not be using the textbook as a major source of information and learning in class, all students are encouraged to read corresponding sections of the book to supplement in class learning and activities.
If you have any questions feel free to ask me before or after class, or e-mail me at SOsborne@mtps.org
