Mrs. Saunchegraw's Class
I am looking forward to a wonderful year at St. Ambrose! I will be teaching 6LA, and 6-8 History. I will also be the leading the St. Alphonsa House this year.
I taught grades 2, 3 and 5 in the Hazelwood School District for 10 years and then had the opportunity to stay at home with my children. During that time I worked for Special School District in the Homebound program and was a substitute teacher and was very involved in my children's school and our parish. Then I worked for Ferguson/Florissant as a Parent Educator. The last two years I was at St. Mary Magdalen teaching middle school social studies. I am blessed to have the opportunity to continue my teaching career in a strong faith filled community.
This year our virtue for the year is Compassion. As we strive for a deeper understanding of living a life filled with compassion, we will explore the virtues of wisdom, temperance, piety and joy to help us grow in our faith journey.
Middle school teachers will specify if assignments are to be handwritten on loose leaf paper, shared on Google Drive, or printed.
All middle school assignments must meet the following requirements:
-Have a full heading
-Be completed on approved paper
-Be written in a legible manner using an appropriate writing instrument and style
-Written in complete sentences with correct grammar and spelling
-Organized in a neat and orderly manner
-Presented in good condition
Homework should be turned in or shared on time, and must also be legible. If assignments can not be read or are in a state of disarray, middle school teachers will not accept them and the student will earn a late grade. See the family handbook regarding neatness and late polices.
I will follow the homework policy guidelines: one day late (at the time of class) will receive a 10% reduction. If the work is not completed and turned in on day two (at the time of class), the student will receive a zero. This policy does not pertain to students who miss class due to illness, family emergencies, or other excused absences; however, it is the STUDENT'S RESPONSIBILITY to turn in any absent/late work before or at the start of class. When appropriate, the assignment should be graded prior to class.
Having late/missing assignments will negatively affect a students effort grade and will be posted on his/her report card. The scale is as follows: 1-3 late/missing assignments will earn an S, 4-6 will earn an N, and 7 or more will earn a U. Please be aware that effort grades can affect a student's chance for Honor Roll.
I use a cumulative grade scale, where the grade will be determined by how many points are accumulated over the course of a quarter.
Mass participation will be a separate grade category under Personal Responsibility on the report cards. The child can earn a G, S, N or U according to the criteria listed below.
G = consistent, audible singing and responses
S = consistent singing and responses
N = no responses and/or no singing
U = causes distraction and/or requires teacher redirection
The best way to reach me is through Fast Direct. Please be aware that some emails may warrant a phone call; Fast Direct is not a means of conferencing.
REMINDER FOR BIRTHDAY TREATS
Please no soda or refrigerated items.
Treats should be store bought.
If the treat is brought for the house, it will be handed out during break.
If the treat is brought for the grade, it will be handed out during lunch.
If you would like to partake in a field trip or volunteer to help with your child's class, you must complete the Protecting God's Children Class.
