     Your grade will be calculated by taking the total number of points you have earned during the marking period and dividing by the total possible number of points for the marking period.
     
    Students may retake a quiz or test if they score below 70% .  Student will see "Please retake" and a line for a parent signature.  IT IS UP TO THE STUDENT TO HAVE A PARENT/GUARDIAN SIGN THE QUIZ/TEST AND BRING IT IN TO ME.  The student and I will set up a time to retake the quiz or test. 
     
     I look forward to a successful and meaningful year with you in SCIENCE!  If you have any questions or concerns please contact me at the middle school or jstathopoulos@pgsd.org.  I am here to assist in your child's science experience at the Pottsgrove Middle School.
