4th Grade-Week 1 Parent Letter

Mr. Gantt’s Earth Science Lab Policies
4th Grade

Dear Parents and Students,

            Over the next few months, students will be studying about the Earth, what it is made of, and how it has changed. Students will attend Earth Science Lab 1 day a week for 1 hour and 20 minutes.

            Student grades are based on weekly class work, two quizzes, questioning during lab investigations, participation in class and three homework assignments. Students will receive points for all assignments and participation. Points are added up and are divided by the total points possible to come up with a percentage.

            4 = 100% - 93%
            3 = 92% - 70%
            2 = 69% - 50%
            1 = 49% - below

            Students will be assigned THREE Science Lab homework assignments, and they are due at the next lab session. If students are absent, they still must complete the homework assignments.

            If you have any questions, or concerns, you may contact me through the main office or by email at You can also visit my class blog at

            There will be a workshop for parents with 4th graders on April 10th at 1:30 in room 46.
