5th Grade Parent Letter

Earth Science Lab Policies
5th Grade

Dear Parents and Students,

            Over the next few months, students will be studying about our solar system, the Earth, and the weather around it. Students will attend Earth Science Lab 1 day a week for 1 hour and 20 minutes.

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

            4 = 100% - 93%
            3 = 92% - 73%
            2 = 72% - 55%
            1 = 54% - 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. Information about what the lessons in Earth Science Lab, schedule and chances for extra credit can be found at

            If you have any questions, or concerns, you may contact me through the main office or by email at


Mr. Gantt
