Mr. Pietsch's Living Earth!
I am excited to begin this new time together and I look forward to getting to know and work with all of you! Let's do everything we can to make the best of the situation that we are given and learn to thrive together!
Parents: On this site, I have organized information for you that will easily be accessible. If you are interested in being in your child's google classroom, please send me an email at [email protected] and I can invite you to the classroom as a parent. Our main mode of communication will be email and Google Classroom.
Structure of Work: All resources and assignments will be posted on Google Classroom. Work may be submitted by taking a photo of the student's work and submitting it to Google Classroom under the appropriate assignment section. You may opt to print out any resources or worksheets if you have access, but you can show your work on paper whenever necessary.
Office Hours: Students may communicate questions, concerns, and needs during the Q&A parts of our class. At any time, if a student or parent needs clarification or a specific question about our class, please email me at [email protected]. You can expect to receive a response within 24 hours.
Grades: Your child’s grades will be earned based on a combination of assessments, daily performance, and participation/engagement. Your child will receive a progress report at least twice a semester. A = 90-100% B = 80-89.9% C = 67-79.9% D = 60-66.9% F = 0-59.9%.(Grading policy is subject to change based on the future classroom setting.)
Participation: Students will earn credit for all tasks and assignments they actively participate in.
I look forward to a great year filled with successful learning and fun. Student engagement is expected during the entire class session. Students will be given Exit Tickets periodically to ensure their comprehending the material covered.
