abcGrading: Third grade is when students receive their first letter grades in BEASD.

While this can be a stressful transition for students and parents, keep in mind the number one reason for low grades in my room is missing work.

All students have a "work in progress" folder for incomplete papers. Students should check their "work in progress" folder for missing work or the "no name" box. Incomplete papers should NOT be in their desk.

I will contact you if your child's grades fall below a C or if they consistently have missing work.
