Discipline Procedures

Each classroom seeks to foster the values of a Catholic, Christian community: kindness, courtesy, justice, respect, hospitality and cooperation. Please refer to policies outlined in the School Handbook.

Homework

Teachers will post nightly homework on classroom whiteboard.  It is the students’ responsibility to copy assignments in their planners. Tests, quizzes, and long term assignments will be posted on OptionC.

Long Term Assignments

While students will be encouraged to become more independent and responsible for their own work, they still will be in need of their parents’ aid with regard to deadlines. Long term assignments will be accompanied by a scoring rubric and set of directions which are given to the students when the project is assigned.

Make-Up Work For Absentees

Individual teachers will inform students for their policy regarding make-up tests. A student will be encouraged to speak to the teachers if he/she is aware of an upcoming absence in advance. Make-up work for all absences, but particularly for extended absences due to illness, will be scheduled in a timely, reasonable manner and will adhere to the school’s policy. Absences which are not due to illness should be limited.

Communication

 Teachers may be contacted any time via e-mail or phone. Parents are encouraged to contact teachers with any questions or concerns.

Service

The Middle Unit will give service to the community by contributing to the Gift of Giving Program and by supporting the students at Our Lady of Confidence School in Willow Grove.
