Grading and Honors

Overall evaluation of the student must be based on teacher judgment and observation of the student’s daily work, class participation, effort, and performance on teacher prepared tests (to include but not limited to projects, portfolios, and other tools of assessment). The purpose of report cards is to alert the parents and present to them an assessment of their child’s achievement in his/her academic studies.

Grading System

Grades are based on the degree of success the individual student has achieved in completing the grade level curriculum. At Back-to-School Night, each teacher will provide an explanation of his/her method and procedures for grading.

National Junior Honor Society

Seventh graders who have maintained an average of 90% or above for their entire sixth grade year and the second trimester of seventh grade are eligible for membership in the Father Stanley J. Krempa Chapter of the National Junior Honor Society. The application provides information regarding each student’s service, leadership, character, citizenship, and scholarship.

An undisclosed five-member Faculty Council will review all applications and make a final decision regarding admittance into NJHS. The Faculty Council considers all the aforementioned categories and places a high premium on character, defined in the NJHS handbook as “an outstanding record of conduct and behavior with regard to school”. The Father Stanley J. Krempa Chapter of the National Junior Honor Society is a service organization to our school and the greater community.
