• Welcome to Mr. Fallon's Web Site
     
    We will be having a Field Day for K-8 this week.  I have attached a copy of the packet on my website and on my google classroom.
         Even though grades 5-8 is on Monday and K-4 is on Tuesday for the entire school.  I will leave the field day packet up all week for your enjoyment.  If you can not do it on the assigned day, you are more than welcome to do it on another day.  The field day events are just for fun,  you can fill in the charts attached to the google slide if you would like but it is not required.  You do not have to hand anything in this week.  This field day week is just for fun.

    Students will work cooperatively together to reach a common goal and complete a common task, while working on leadership skills, communication skills, learn how to network with other groups in order to put on different events through this semester.

    žGYM 

    For grades 5-8 all students start with a 100 average.  Each unprepared counts as minus 5.  Grades K-4 will result in a lose of points for every unprepared, with an unsatisfactory grade for the marking period after 5 unprepareds. Any other problems in class such as behavior, not participating in activity, not doing exercises, gum chewing can result in the loss of points as well. 

    5-8th grade students will now be assigned a numeric grade for gym on their report card.

    Health

    Health is a numeric grade on your report card.  Here is the break down of points.

    Test / Quizes = 50 %

    Classwork / Participation = 25 %

    Homework = 25 %

    Late Work Policy

    There will be a due date for all assignments given to you.  It is your responsibility to hand in all assignments on their due date.  If an assignment is not handed in on its due date it can be handed in the next class period for half credit.  If it is not handed in the next class it will result in a zero for the assignment.  When that assignment becomes a ZERO, that assignment can not be made up.

     

    Make Up Work

    If you are absent one day, you have one day to make up that assignment.  If you are absent on the day of a test or quiz, you will make up the test or quiz the following health class.
