Sketchbooks are graded in class every Monday. They include all bell work, classwork, notes, and handouts from the previous week. If you are absent, you do not need to make up the bell work. Everything must be neatly labeled and glued within your sketchbook before it is graded. Sketchbook must be neat, clean, and in good condition at all times, or otherwise be replaced.
MONDAYS: Sketchbook check of previous week's bell work, notes, and classwork.
FRIDAYS: Tests, but not every week. Students are always given advanced notice of any assessment. Study guides for tests are given out 1 week prior to the test date.
