    Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! I am looking forward to all of the GREAT things that we are going experience this year!
     
    A little about me:
    I grew up here in Burlington and attended Turrentine and Williams High School.  Following high school I attended the University of North Carolina-Wilmington for my undergraduate degree and University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill for my masters degree.  As part of my masters program I studied student motivation as well as student understanding of proportional relationships.  I taught 7th grade math for five years in Guilford County prior to moving to Turrentine.  This is my fifth year at Turrentine and I love being a Trojan again!
     

    Supplies needed for Mrs. Cizek’s class:

    • 2 composition notebooks
    • Pencils/pens
    • TI-34 multi view calculator
    • Dry Erase Markers

    Grading policy:

                a.  As per Alamance-Burlington School System the grading policy is as follows:

    100-91=A, 90-81=B, 80-71=C, 70-61=D, 60-0=F

                b.  Mrs. Cizek’s policy:

    ·        25% = Classwork (including daily participation and warm ups)

    ·         10% = Homework (must be completed at home with ALL WORK SHOWN)

    ·        40% = Tests (students may re-take tests by scheduling a Friday to stay after school with Mrs. Cizek)

    ·         25% = Quizzes  (Quizzes may not be re-taken)

    c.  Please check your child’s grades weekly on Powerschool

    d.  All homework assignments and some classwork assignments are posted on the Assignments page

     

    TMS has trained and implemented PBIS during the first week of school.  Students have participated in school-wide expectation training by watching PBIS videos, class discussions and role play.  PBIS gives everyone the skills needed to be successful while at school.  

     

     Students will receive 2 verbal warnings prior to each consequence

     

    1st offense- Parent Contact, Classroom Consequence

    2nd offense- Parent Contact, After School Detention

    *For major offenses, teachers may use discretion at any time to skip Steps 1-3.
