WELCOME parents and students! I am very excited to begin the 2016-2017 school year at Brown Middle School. I feel confident that this will be an enjoyable and exciting year. I understand the importance of being your child’s teacher. To ensure a positive and productive learning environment, there are a few procedures that I require my students to follow:
Academic dishonesty or academic misconduct is any type of cheating that occurs in relation to a formal academic exercise. It can include. Plagiarism: The adoption or reproduction of ideas or words or statements of another person without due acknowledgment.

Cheating on homework, tests, quizzes, projects or ANY math work in Mrs. M. Gonzalez’s class is NOT permitted. If you choose to cheat you will get 0.
(First week of school, please bring a box of tissue paper to be used throughout the school year. Thanks!) The
following must be brought to class every

policy will be followed for make-up work. Students are allowed the
number of days absent in which to turn in make-up work. The
responsibility of obtaining make-up work lies with the student. Tests
will be made up before or after school for students with excused
absences—students, please see me to make arrangements.
and complete work will qualify for a grade of 100 if received by due
GT Late Work
Because Gifted and Talented classes are project-based and move at an accelerated pace, late work is NOT accepted. If your child is having difficultly completing assignments on time, email me ASAP.
1. To receive credit, students must write the problem (if applicable) and show all work done to obtain an answer (this helps me assess students’ thinking). “Answer only” papers are unacceptable.
2. All work must be completed in pencil, or it will not be accepted.
3. Each student’s work will be kept in his/her binder.
assignment sheet or planner is where students will record their daily
assignments, as well as upcoming quizzes, tests, projects, etc. This
will aid the student with organization.

should not be looked at as simply a way to satisfy grade requirements,
but rather as an opportunity to practice and eventually master what is
being taught; it is an opportunity to take risks and make mistakes.
Students will be given plenty of opportunities to take risks and make
mistakes; they will not be penalized for risk-taking or for the errors
that may result as long as the homework is complete and 100% effort was
put forth. On the contrary, students will be given the chance to correct
and, therefore learn from their mistakes.
be assigned regularly. Due to the nature of our math program, it is
crucial that students complete all homework assignments. Please check
your child’s notebook frequently for assignments and organization or check the homework calendar on the left navigation menu.
Students will earn a grade based on the following categories:
1. Warm-Up Checks
2. Vocabulary Quizzes
3. Quizzes, Exams, and Projects
5. Interactive Notebook checks

If you would like to contact me, you may call the school at 774-4080 to make an appointment. Please allow at least 24-hour notice for a conference. My conference period is 10:45-11:25 am Monday and Wednesday.
You can help your child in several ways:
what your child’s assignments are by checking the Assignment Sheet.
This page is filled out in class daily and is a recording of
assignments, quizzes, tests, etc. Check my Google Calendar called 7th/8th Math Homework for daily Assignments (see navigation menu to the left).
your child share his or her math notebook with you, showing you what
has been recorded as we progress through the investigations. Ask your
child to explain why these ideas are important. Check my my webpage called 7th/8th Math Interactive Notebook for notes (see navigation menu to the left).
- Look over completed work (homework, quizzes, and tests) and make sure that errors have been corrected.
Thank you for your support.
