Cherokee Middle School

Joel Tillman » CHECKOFFS


Dear Parents:


With regard to the subject of Check-Offs for 7th and 8th grade, your student should have access to this hard copy of their grades so you may peruse this daily if you wish.  I use this sheet so that there should be no surprises at the end of a grading period.  Please take random checks of these sheets and help us in this endeavor.  Students have been drastically improving because of these sheets!

Please know that the checkoff sheet is a major portion of your child's grade for each midterm average and final average for a 9 week period.  As a rule. a total of 3 new grades need to be attained by the student at each grading period.  For instance:  1st midterm, 3 grades.  1st Final, 6 grades.  2nd midterm, 9 grades and 2nd Final, 12 grades.  The process will be repeated for the second semester with added requirements. If a concert is included during a grading period, that grade is set as 4 100's (200 for attendance for entire performance, 100 for individual performance, 100 for being an exemplary audience member). 

Checkoffs can be performed in the morning from 7:45-8:10 a.m. daily.
